Warren McAuliffe - Instructor / PADI OWSI


Warren has been diving for over 40 years, getting his PADI certification as soon as he was able to drive himself down to the local Y and get certified.  He wanted adventure and he wanted to get underwater.  He’s now a retired US Navy Submarine officer, and continues to love the adventure and beauty of being able to go underneath the surface of the sea.  Combining scuba diving with vacation time with the wife is pretty much his ideal!  He has found particular enjoyment in bringing in new divers to the club, helping them understand the equipment and technology, the environment and ensuring an understanding of safe diving.   He also enjoys the challenges of certifying new students in New England! Go PATS!

Don and Marlene Snyder - Co-Authors of Rhode Island Adventure Diving

Marlene and Don began diving in Rhode Island in 1976 when, thanks to their friend and diving companion, George Flynn, they discovered Jamestown, Rhode Island. Using Jamestown's Fort Getty as their headquarters, they spent the next ten years diving off the shore and from chartered boats. In the years that followed, they purchased a used fourteen-foot rubber boat, then a sixteen-foot rubber boat and, finally, their current thirty-four-year-old cabin cruiser, Sandpiper. They prowl Narragansett Bay and the open ocean, as far as Block Island, and beyond, diving most of the locations described in the Rhode Island Adventure Diving books. Marlene and Don now dive many places throughout the world; Rhode Island remains one of their favorite destinations.
