The Crew (Scubatyme III)

The Owner:

Enzo Varalla has 20 years of diving experience in Europe, Africa, the Caribbean and the USA including, naturally, South Florida. He is a PADI Instructor since 1999 which enabled him to juggle his passion for diving with Corporate life. But who doesn't dream of the big escape? Enzo had been a loyal Scubatyme customer since 1994, so when the business came on the market in 2006, he happily left Italy and Corporate world for a new adventure. You'll see him on the dock getting you checked in, on board as mate, and in the water as a guide for diving groups. Expect service with a smile. He may be a native Italian, but let's just say he's found “La Dolce Vita” here in South Florida.

The Full-Time Captain:

Robert Wranovics Jr. (Captain Bob) hails from NY. A retired NYPD refugee, Bob has loved the ocean for years. In his spare time from the force, he worked on the fishing boats off the East Coast & took regular trips to Florida for the fantastic diving. When he retired, he decided on the warm blue waters were where he wanted to be every day. A licensed boat captain since 1978, he currently holds a 100 ton USCG Masters license, and is a PADI instructor as well. He joined Scubatyme Charters in 2009 where he has found his second home. If you are from NY, I am sure he will know someone you know.

Divemaster:

Growing up, Adam Nardelli racked clams and fished in the waters of the Long Island Sound. He is now a long way from those colder northern waters, but still the sea hold's him in its rapture and has influenced his life's work. He has over 13 years of experience diving in many of the corners of the world. He has a bachelor's degree in biology from the University of Tampa and am currently working on a Master of Science degree at the Nova Southeastern Oceanographic Center studying the control and monitoring of the invasive Indo-Pacific Red Lionfish. His works as a dive master aboard Scubatyme diver and holds a USCG 100 ton first mate/ OUPV “six-pack” captain's license. He also a PADI Scuba instructor.

The Underwater Videographer/Divemaster:

Doug Barkley has been a professional underwater videographer since 1999, shooting video for such diverse clients as National Geographic, the Coral Restoration Foundation and the Neptune Society, as well as various dive shops and charter boat operators from Jupiter, FL to the Florida Keys. A certified SCUBA diver since 1980 and currently certified as a NAUI/SDI/TDI SCUBA Instructor, he has traveled all over the Caribbean and South Florida bringing memories of the underwater world back for everyone to see. His creative “eye” and ability to get “up close and personal” with the creatures of the sea makes his videos interesting enough for even non-divers to enjoy!
