Stephen Kaplan - Owner/PADI Instructor
Steve is a recently retired Navy SEAL and all around ocean lover. He spent the last four years as the lead diving instructor for the SEAL Team based here in Hawaii. As a veteran of many foreign wars, Steve’s unique prospect, value for life, and wonder for the aquatic world is unavoidably contagious. Out of all the extreme venues life has to offer, from skydiving to gun shooting, mountaineering, explosives, combatives, etc.., there is nothing that matches the dichotomy of excitement balanced with serenity that diving has to offer. There’s something to be said about the peace of mind knowing Steve brings the safest, and yet the most trilling underwater experience to Trident Adventures like none other. Steve has a way of making you feel like the underwater world if your personal playground, as all life’s worries wash away.
