Chris Paparo (FishGuyPhotos) Born and raised on Long Island (New York), I have been exploring the wilds of the island for over 30 years. As a wildlife photographer, writer and lecturer, I enjoy bringing public awareness to the diverse wildlife that calls the island home. My passion for coastal ecology, fishing and the outdoors led me to obtain a BS in Marine Science from LIU/Southampton and I currently manage the new Marine Sciences Center at the Southampton campus of Stony Brook University. In addition to freelance writing for several fishing and wildlife related publications, I currently writes the monthly Naturalist’s Logbook column for the NY/NJ edition of On The Water Magazine. Although my work tends to focus on marine life, everything in the natural world is fair game.

Planet Scuba recently certified my 13 year old son to be an open water diver. Like most parents I was a bit nervous about the idea of him diving. Upon meeting Manuel, Marcos and the team at Planet Scuba I was convinced that they were extremely knowledgeable, all the gear was brand new and they made sure to give me updates on how he was doing throughout the experience. This helped me tremendously.
My son on the other hand would come back everyday with a huge smile, super excited, and loving every minute of diving and practice, telling me how he loved the cenote they took him to, how cool it was and everything he had to do.He even studied all the test material with enthusiasm and passed with a high mark!
I would recommend the shop to anyone!
