Christian Lemouche
Director of Operations
Kevin Shea, M.S.
Director of Land Operations

Christian has many advanced diving certifications, including PADI Specialty Dive Instructor, SCR Rebreather Instructor, CCR Rebreather Diver, and Water System Expert. It has been Christian’s passion to improve marine ecosystems by building and installing artificial reefs for over 12 years. His combined skills as a Master Diver and Master Plumber enabled him to develop flexible and inexpensive controlled buoyancy methods for moving extremely heavy objects in the ocean. This recognized expertise has prompted organizations to hire him to install large underwater statues and monuments in Nicaragua. One such customer commented that he is the only person in Nicaragua with this very unique skill set.  He has also identified the tragedy of unsafe diving practices used by poor fishermen in Nicaragua, which result in multiple injuries and deaths each year. He has voluntarily conducted simple dive safety classes for some fishermen’s cooperatives and has trained several locals to dive with safe methods and equipment.
