Cathy Olson - PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer and DAN O2 Instructor

I have thoroughly enjoyed working at Sea Level Diving since 1999, first as a Dive Master and now as one of Sea Level’s staff instructors.

As a MSDT I am able to teach all PADI courses from Discover SCUBA Diving through Dive Master. I am very interested in Wreck Diving and Underwater Photography; I would also like to get into Cave Diving. I love to look for the small creatures living on the reefs and am fascinated by sharks. From one extreme to the other it all fascinates me. I have the privilege of diving in the Oceanarium at Shedd Aquarium once a week helping to care for the dolphins and whales, occasionally the otters and penguins too.

Travel has always been a passion of mine and I’ve been fortunate to visit many countries in the Caribbean and the country of Palau in Micronesia (Palau is one of my favorites!).

I’ve been diving in the Bahamas, Belize, Roatan, Curacao, Turks and Caicos, North Carolina, Florida Keys and the Galapagos Islands.
