Meet the iDive New England Dive Team
iDive New England Team member/ Dive Site Mapping
Alyne fell in love with SCUBA diving at first breath. Eager to learn to SCUBA dive, after being given the “OK” to put on her regulator and descend, she did just that and took her first breath underwater. It was then that she knew she had superpowers. She could breathe underwater! Never mind the fact that she was in her very first pool session, only four feet deep, and in an indoor pool working to become a certified SCUBA diver.
Her newfound passion for SCUBA diving was solidified during her very first time diving in open-water when she saw the tiniest snail on a blade of seagrass swaying back and forth with the current. The sun rays were reflecting, and the lighting was just right for what seemed like such great visibility for New England diving. She realized then that this newly discovered adventure would provide her with endless possibilities for exploration and learning opportunities.
Alyne was open-water PADI certified in May 2021 and continued to acquire advanced and specialized diving certifications. With over 180 logged dives, Alyne is currently working to obtain her Divemaster certification with expectation to complete it by Spring 2023.
Her objective is to continue to further develop and practice her diving skills to remain a proficient diver, explore new dive sites, encourage new divers, and introduce SCUBA diving to non-divers by sharing her experiences, adventures, and her recently discovered affinity of underwater video and still photography.
You can find Alyne diving the waters of New England year-round, occasionally exploring dive vacation destinations and at youtube.com/@alynescubadives.
