  • My NAUI Bio

    My name is Billy Hunter, I am the lead Scuba instructor and owner of Scuba Steve’s Aquatic Adventures in Tyler Texas, as well as the faculty instructor for Tyler Junior College and its continuing Education program.
    I have been a certified scuba diver sense 2004 . I was born and raised in Tyler where water activities were always a part of my life. I developed an interest in scuba very early in my life. I grew up watching shows like Sea Hunt and Jacque Cousteau’s Under Water World. Living in Tyler I did not think there were any resources to learn to scuba dive so I just let it pass without investigating. In December of 2003 my best friend said we need to get scuba certified. He found Scuba Steve’s and we were off and I never looked back. I continued to take additional classes to increase my skills and knowledge.
    After about two years of diving I decided to pursue a career in scuba and became an instructor. I chose to become a NAUI Instructor (National Association of Underwater Instructors) because of the prestige, safety record and worldwide recognition of the organization. I truly enjoy introducing others to the world of diving. My student’s safety and comfort in diving are my primary concerns.


    Billy was very patient and well educated to answer all questions. He made sure to make you feel comfortable in the water. I always felt safe.

    The instructor is very patient, helpful and he makes sure the student understands the course well enough before getting in the water - over all = he is very, very good.

    The course was excellent. I feel completely ready to experience the underwater world.
