Joel Urbina

PADI IDC Staff Instructor

As a highly experienced PADI IDC staff instructor (346880) with a passion for environmental awareness, coral reef conservation, and fish identification. I have over 15 PADI specialty courses, and enjoy mentoring dive masters to becoming professionals. I’m part of one of the most prestigious dive shops (West  Bay Divers) focusing on customer service and providing that family atmosphere. My favorite fish is the juvenile drum fish and my favorite shark is the hammer head. My favorite dive site is Bears Den since there are tons of swim throughs and a nice cavern which makes all the aquatic life look so flawless and gorgeous. I love diving with a hat on to help all my divers be able to identify me underwater easier.
