Shark Diving Team


Meet Donovan originally from southern California sharks and the ocean have always had a strong grip on his life. While growing up hunting, fishing, and boating, respect for nature and the water was just a part of life from a young age. For as long as he can remember he's been fascinated by watching National Geographic and Animal Planet learning about the ocean and all creatures. Having a passion for the ocean, wildlife, and teaching is what originally led to his career as a Padi Scuba Instructor and Emergency First  Response Instructor.


Being an avid sailor and adventurer naturally becoming a captain was the next step. Safety, respect, and sharing his knowledge and love for the ocean and sharks has always been a passionate subject for him. If he isn't swimming with sharks or scuba diving in and out of shipwrecks or caves you can find him sailing between the islands or competitively racing sailboats almost any day of the week.

Captain, Safety Diver, PADI Scuba Instructor and Emergency First Responder Instructor


Whale Shark and Underwater Photographer

One of her earliest memories in life is seeing a video of somebody diving with sharks and at 5 years old she told her parents she was going to be a shark diver when she got older. At 9 years old she took her first trip to Hawaii and again told her parents “I'm going to move out here and be a shark diver”. After finishing college for marine biology she finally was able to start an internship diving with sharks.


As a PADI divemaster, she has guided thousands of scuba dives and has thousands of shark dives under her belt. Following her dreams from childhood, she has become an amazing shark diver diving all over the world with many different species of sharks and other ocean creatures.

Nick Ashe Ocean Addict 808 Shark Diving Hawaii

Meet Nick, a Hawaii-based photographer and filmmaker who loves to capture the world's beauty from an underwater perspective. He is a certified freediver and PADI rescue diver, which means he's the guy you want around when the ocean gets a little too friendly.


Nick's passion for photography started when he realized that his life looked a lot cooler through a lens. He spends most of his time frolicking with playful pods of dolphins and flirting with curious sea turtles. If you're lucky enough to catch him out of the water, you'll find him wrangling his two young kids, dreaming up his next big shot.
