Chris Pattillo
Sammamish, Wa
Dive Level: Instructor
Diving Since: 1987

I grew up on a small lake. I spent my most summers swimming and snorkeling. I have always been interested in anything relating to the water.

I took a Marine Biology / Oceanography class in high school and went to Hawaii the next summer to get NAUI SCUBA certified.

In college I majored in Zoology and Marine Biology. I spent three spring terms at Stanfordís Hopkins Marine Station in Monterey CA. I was employed as a science research SCUBA diver during my second and third years.

I am a SSI Advanced Open Water Instructor certified to teach basic and advanced classes including Stress & Rescue.

In 2007 some of my free diving friends finally got certified. As we started diving more frequently and looking for new places to dive this site was created.
