Larry Doyle, Midwest School of Diving scuba instructor and dive master.

Larry is a long life resident of Minnesota and has been diving since the early 70’s; first receiving his open water certificate at the age of 15. Since then, Larry has dived mostly in the Caribbean and just recently has begun enjoying diving in the Great Lakes. One of Larry’s most memorable dive trips was in the South Pacific where the underwater structures are big and the animal life even bigger!

Larry currently works fulltime for the Minneapolis Police Department, holding the rank of Lieutenant. He is also retired from the U.S. Army Reserves and has his Masters in Science Security Technology from the University of Minnesota.

Fantastic service - great instructor!

Fantastic service - great instructor, checked out other Scuba shops, they were more expensive and less customer friendly.  Would recommend to this business to friends and family.
