Grant Cauley

After growing up hiking and skiing in the Adirondack Mountains, Grant moved south to attend Clemson University. Upon completion of his degree he decided to drive to Lake Tahoe and be a ski bum for a little while! He spent two great years in South Lake Tahoe tending bar and skiing a bunch, but warmer climates were calling his name! From the NoCal mountains to the SoCal beaches…San Diego was his next stop. Living in Pacific Beach for eight years he worked in a variety of bars and restaurants. In 2007 he flew to Thailand and signed up for a diving internship. He spent seven months there traveling around and becoming a dive instructor with Aquanauts Dive. Upon returning to San Diego he spent a summer working for Scuba San Diego, diving and leading kayak and snorkel tours in the beautiful La Jolla Cove! In October of 2008 he booked a one way ticket to St. Thomas! He gained employment at the Caribbean Saloon as a bartender and work part time as a dive instructor at Aqua Action. No bad days!
