Ryan Ricci Turtle Whisperer Gear Monkey PADI OWSI SDI OWSI
Ryan started his scuba adventures in a small lake in Southern Michigan. His uncle introduced him to diving in 1987. At 8 years old, his uncle put him on a regulator, and experience the underwater world for the first time. Ryan spent the next 7 years searching for propellers, outboard motors, anything else of value and just having fun in the underwater world of small freshwater lakes and springs. Fast forward 15 years, he found himself in the Caribbean and mesmerized by the fish life while snorkeling. A few years later, he vacationed in Cozumel, this was the first time he had seen a pressure gauge, a computer, or even a BC. He was wondering where his J-valve pull was. Once he hit the ocean current and cruised that amazing reef, he was hooked back on the sport. Back in Indianapolis he immediately signed up for an Open Water Course. After 4 years of active diving and continuing education, he followed his passion into the pro world of scuba. He has dreamed of buying and starting a quarry for the past 8 years, so when the idea of opening a shop came up he jumped in feet first!
