James Turner...My first SCUBA class was taken at The Pennsylvania State University to fulfill the kinesiology credit requirements for a B.S. degree. The following semester I started to help with the setup and logistics of conducting a NAUI Scuba diver class. Teaching became a passion for me early on in my dive career. By the time I graduated college, I worked my up through the NAUI ranks to achieve assistant instructor. When I am not diving locally or helping with class, I prefer diving on WWII wrecks off the coast of North and South Carolina.  Contact James
