Maui Scuba Instructor Ty

Born in London England, I spent most of my life in San Jose California.

“I Started Diving in Monterey Calif in 1997 and was hooked from that point on. I worked through the ranks to become a Divemaster & fell in love with working with students in the challenging cold, low visibility of Monterey Bay and beyond.

Then pursuing a dream of Underwater photography. I Started shooting anything and EVERYTHING. On a scuba trip to Maui I decided to become an instructor and went back to Cali to pursue a new career with my passion to teach, dive and shoot photos. I became a Master Scuba Diver Trainer and moved to Maui in 2001″.

HBO hired Ty in Oct 2020  to train the lead actors Steve Zahn and Fred Hechinger to be scuba certified for the Limited series “The White Lotus”. During production, Ty was sequestered with the cast & crew for 8 days at the Four Seasons Resort Maui for the filming due to COVID. Everyone had to be in the “HBO bubble”, getting tested daily before going on set to work. Ty was also working as Water Safety during the on set water scenes during the filming. Then when they were filing the underwater  scenes from a boat off the west coast of Maui. Look for his bubbles in the underwater scenes.


Ty has worked on different dive boats and Hotels where his talents shined. Well known as a patient, knowledgeable easy going and very funny instructor. Building such a strong clientele base.

Past customers were calling and only wanting to book with Ty. This is when he decided to go for it and start In2Scuba Diving Maui Dive Co.” Since then it has been a snowball effect of divers passing on the word to dive with Ty.
