I learned to Scuba in Hawaii in 1978 and have been teaching since 2001. I enjoy teaching with it’s challenges and rewards. Watching student’s progress from taking their first breath underwater to learning an advanced techique is enjoyable. I also coordinate the Wednesday Night Dives and look forward to seeing you there.

Mark Schroeder
Master Instructor 168195
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 Master Diver 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.
Will Peters MSDT
I signed up for a diving class on a vacation in the Bahamas. I ended up falling in love with diving and completed my open water certification on that trip. I worked through the certification path and got more involved with Green Bay Scuba. I decided to become an instructor to share my love for diving with others. Diving has given me an opportunity to learn new things, have new experiences and meet new people. I am excited to share my diving knowledge with others and give them the opportunity to explore a whole new world underwater.
