I'm Alan J. Hicks, a NAUI Divemaster from Westford, Massachusetts. I am one of many folks who began scuba diving when they were young, left the sport for awhile and have returned in their "senior" years. I originally certified through Jerry Comeau's Massachusetts Academy of Skin and Scuba Diving and the YMCA in the Spring of 1968, when I was 17 . I dove for 10 years around the North Shore of Massachusetts and at Long Lake in Maine. When my son came along, I hung up my aging scuba gear, but kept up diving as an active snorkeler.

A trip to Hawaii and a "Discover Scuba" experience in 2009 fired up my interest again. I recertified as a NAUI scuba diver in June of that year and over the next 15 months worked my way up to Divemaster.

In recent years, I have enjoyed working with old and new certified divers and guiding folks to some of the great dive sites in the Cape Ann area. For personal reasons, I retired from professional Divemaster duties as of 2014, but hope to continue to dive recreationally as time and health permit.
