ANDY SILVERMAN

FOUNDER & OWNER

Andy started Columbus Scuba in 1999 as a small business that he ran out of his garage. Through hard work, and a passion for Scuba diving, he and the team have grown Columbus Scuba into the extensive dive family that it is today. Andy is an extremely accomplished diver, instructor, PADI Course Director, and sits on the board of directors for IANTD. He has has certified thousands of divers and scuba instructors in all levels of training and personally has around 10,000 dives in his log book. What really sets Andy apart though, is his generosity and willingness to help other people. Through Columbus Scuba, Andy has created a community where people from all different backgrounds can come together and enjoy the underwater world that Andy loves so much, and that is something really special.
