  • My NAUI Bio

    Scott began diving almost 20 years ago. Like many, Scott’s interest in the underwater world began with watching shows like the Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau and Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom. To date, Scott has completed over 2,000 dives, the majority of which have taken place in local Puget Sound waters. Although he enjoys diving abroad, his passion is for local wreck diving. This passion for wreck diving was prompted by the vast number of historical resources that lie beneath our local waters.

    In 2004, Scott took the next step and became a NAUI scuba instructor in order to share his love of diving with others. Since then, he has had the opportunity to teach hundreds of individuals how to dive safely. Scott earned his NAUI Technical Course Director rating in 2008.

    In June of 2006 Scott became a founding member of Puget Sound Divers, an organization dedicated to the discovery and preservation of submerged cultural resources. Since then, he has spent countless hours using side scan sonar technology to locate submerged structures in Lake Washington. To date they have located, documented, and explored dozens of underwater wrecks and structures.

    Scott is a high school science teacher at The Overlake School, in Redmond Washington. While there he developed a Marine Science and Oceanography program, which subsequently lead to an additional program that Scott developed in which high school students can learn to scuba dive during spring break. To date, Scott has helped over fifty Overlake students earn their scuba certification.

    Scott is also the owner and operator of Sound Aquatics, LLC, a scuba educational center, located in Kenmore, WA. Founded in 2005, Sound Aquatics offers instruction from basic open water instruction to technical dive instructor. Sound Aquatics provides a full line of cylinder services including visual inspections, hydrostatic testing, and oxygen service. In 2009, Sound Aquatics opened a full service fill station, which provides air, nitrox, argon, and Trimix to divers in the greater Seattle area.

    When not teaching or exploring, Scott enjoys boating, golfing, fly fishing, and camping with his family.


    Very good mainly thanks to a good teacher who obviously loves scuba diving and imparts that love and experience to the students.

    I just wanted to say having completed my Instructor training under Scott Christopher was a really enjoyable and quality experience. I have a lot of diving experience and he represents many of the best qualities one could want in an instructor or diver. He's a good guy, an excellent instructor, and he is truly dedicated to the sport.
