Mr. Witmer is a staple in the diving industry in the Keys of Florida. When I was doing my research on who I wanted to train me to become an instructor, Tom Witmer’s name was always in the mix. I being a disabled veteran I knew I was gonna need so extra help. Upon interviewing with Tom he was very eager to help me follow my dreams. We discussed my injuries and made a plan of how to go from a zero to hero. It took about 12 months, but Tom’s patients, knowledge and over all willing to help were all ingredients for my success. Tom not only was my course instructor, but we became friends and he has become one of the best mentors I could ever ask for. So if your looking to become an instructor, you owe it to yourself to have the best. Tom Witmer and Beyond-the-Reef, LLC is where you want to get your instruction.
