Brent Sizemore

Staff Instructor


Brent was born and raised in Bluefield, WV, which is self-proclaimed as nature’s air-conditioned city. 

Given the cooler weather and the simple fact there were no diving locations for hours in any direction, he had no clue he would one day find a passion for diving.  After his career in Information Technology brought him to the Richmond area, that day came in 2010 while on vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico when he was introduced to the sport.  He returned from vacation, completed his Open Water certification with Atlantis the next month, and was hooked for life.  He continued taking classes and eventually decided to take the Dive Master class solely for the challenge of it.  That led to him finding enjoyment in helping others learn the sport and sometimes helping them overcome their fears in the process.

Brent prefers warm water diving over cold, and he most enjoys wreck dives, wall dives, and any dive with a twist, like “the washing machine” dive in The Exuma Cays.

When the time comes to retire from the IT world, Brent’s hoping to find a warm blue water location in the Caribbean, but he has no intentions of retiring from diving, instructing, or helping people enjoy the sport.
