We would like to introduce Neil Copas, the newest member of the Pura Vida family!

Neil first discovered his love for the ocean on a family vacation snorkeling in Cozumel when he was 13. After graduating from Ohio State University in 2007 with a BS in Electrical & Computer Engineering, he moved to Melbourne FL for work. Shortly after moving to Melbourne, Neil received his Open Water certification and began diving many of the southeast Florida dive sites.

In 2010 Neil quit the corporate world and moved to New Zealand for a lifestyle change. The diving in New Zealand lead him to go “Pro” and he received his PADI Divemaster in Thailand.

Now, back in Florida, Neil is excited to continue his professional career at Pura Vida and to dive the amazing dive sites of Palm Beach Florida.

Have you met Neil yet?

He will be filling tanks in the shop and crewing on Sirena. So come diving with us and meet Neil! We love him and we know you will too.
