Lana McGlynn a Diving Diva - Cary, NC USA
About Me: I am a perfect example of it is never too late to take up the sport of scuba diving. I received my open water certification in October 2001 and found the underwater world so exciting and loved it so much, that in less than two years I became a diving instructor. One of the reasons I became an instructor is to provide a supportive and nurturing environment for those who wanted to learn to scuba, but for whatever reason felt it was not possible whether through a fear or a physical challenge. Since becoming a certified instructor I have focused on individual instruction for those potential divers that need a little extra attention rather than larger classes. I have enjoyed diving all over the world, from Indonesia to Antarctica and all over the Caribbean. I became a PADI master scuba diver trainer in august 2004. Beyond the basic and advanced open water courses she teaches more than 16 specialty courses. I am the founder of divingdivas.com an organization focused on encouraging women over 40 to learn to dive.
Favorite Dive Gear
My pink dive fins, mask and snorkel from TUSA. My Aqua Lung Zuma BCD and my Suunto Cobra 3 computer.
Favorite Dive Locations
I enjoy diving anywhere any time. I teach in a NC lake with 5 foot visibility. I dive in the strong currents off the NC coast. I have further enjoyed diving all over the world, from Indonesia to Antarctica and all over the Caribbean.
