Dennis Gillespie

Hi, I’m Captain Dennis enjoying paradise here in Pompano Beach, Florida. My favorite dive site is the Ancient Mariner wreck. While diving, I enjoy watching damsel fish as they protect their space.  But blackened grouper is also one of my favorite marine animals.

Owner & Possibly Part Fish


Owner and Pennsylvania native, Zach learned how to dive on Scubatyme in 2010, before becoming the owner in 2020. While he loves deep wreck dives, he is happiest kicking as fast as he can on any reef dive. Seriously if you dive a reef with him, take one of his fins away!
