Biography

Qualifications

After more than 30 years of teaching scuba and 25 years of training instructors, with over 2,000 certifications issued, Jeff has a very confident method of educating technical divers and dive professionals.

I dive and have been diving almost every week for the past 30 plus years and I still love every dive.

Jeff Loflin

“I am currently the Dive Safety Officer for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, part time PADI Instructor Examiner and Tec Consultant, Former chairman of the board and current member of the National Speleological Society Cave Diving Section/Training Committee, test diver for several technical equipment manufacturers to include sidemount and CCR’s. I am President of Jeff Loflin Diving and train divers and instructors worldwide in technical diving. I am a commercial and scientific diver and serve on several Public Safety Dive Teams.

Working as a commercial diver in Florida I wanted to venture into deeper waters and explore ship wrecks without the top side support personnel that commercial divers are used to having. Diving the deep wrecks off the Florida Coast in open circuit gear was challenging and exciting. I was hooked on Tec diving and I decided to explore the numerous Underwater Florida Caves, and subsequently became passionate about cave diving.”
