About Us

Narked Scuba was established in 2011. We have always been passionate about sharing our knowledge with other divers looking to advance their skills, and new divers who are seeking underwater adventures.

Fast forward to present day, we now have over 10 years of training experience, and are located in the heart of the North Florida Springs. We offer courses from beginner all the way to CCR, and everything in between.

Instructor John McCain

As the son of two avid divers, John was no stranger to the dive community growing up. In 2005 he started diving, and in 2010 began working towards his professional diver ratings. John has been fortunate to work with hundreds of divers over the past decade, and currently holds instructor ratings with SDI, TDI, and NSS-CDS. 

In 2014 John moved to North Florida in order to further his career in the dive industry.  In addition to his experience as an instructor, John has worked with Dive Rite for 8 years, helping to develop equipment for serious divers around the world.

During his free time, John has participated in multiple lionfish tournaments over the years. In 2016 and 2018, he won the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Lionfish Challenge. As of late, Team Florida Man has won the Lionfish World Championship located in Destin, Florida 3 years consecutively. John is very passionate about removing this invasive species from the reefs, and continues to help bring awareness to this issue.

Living in the Florida region known as “Cave Country” has also enabled John to continue his passion for cave diving, and venture into the realm of closed circuit rebreathers. John has over 10 years of experience on the Dive Rite O2ptima, many hours of which have been spent in Florida’s vast aquifer.
