Mark Schroeder

TV series Sea Hunt with Lloyd Bridges provided the initial interest in scuba diving for Mark. It wasn’t until late summer of 1997 that a friend encouraged Mark to become open water certified. Mark became an Instructor in the spring of 2000. He now holds his IDC Staff Instructor certification providing Green Bay Scuba LLC the ability to offer all Divemasters the opportunity to become Assistant Instructors. Being an avid fisherman Mark enjoys diving in the Minocqua/Eagle River area looking for his next catch.
