About

Hi, I’m Angela Rich, and I’m the Chief Editor here at Ideal Dive.

I have been a diving enthusiast for as long as I can remember. Even as a kid I was obsessed with the wonder of the vast and beautiful environments that we find under the sea. There is just something about exploring the mysterious waters of the oceans, lakes or rivers and seeing the wonderful sea life that calls this world of water their home.

Not only do I dive for fun, but I have also made it a career. After earning my degree in marine diving technology, I have spent the last 10 years training those young and old how to dive and snorkel. My experience and expertise include everything from teaching beginning snorkeling lessons to assisting professionals with deep-sea dives.

Ideal Dive is run by a team of diving enthusiasts, and our mission is to help divers of all skill levels learn about the best styles, equipment, and locations for your greatest aquatic adventures.

Those who have begun to become familiar with diving and snorkeling know that there is so much more to the sport than just jumping in the water. Since you want to have the best equipment, we have developed comprehensive guides that break down the best masks, tanks, and wetsuits that you need to dive like the pros. The fun thing about diving is that the activity is always evolving. To keep you up to date, we post reviews of the newest tech on the market so you can stay ahead of the curve. In the end, we want to be your one stop shop for all things diving and snorkeling.

If you’re as in love with diving as we are, then we welcome to our site and our community and we hope that you find our resources helpful! We’d love to hear from you, whether that’s in a comment on one of our posts or a private message to our team.
