Rob Roy   ≈ President Rob R.

   Rob is a passionate and enthusiastic diver who was certified in
Philippines in 2008.

   He started diving because of his love for underwater nature, and he
   now has 
1000 dives...and counting! 

   Rob has become an extremely avid underwater photographer over
   the last few years with a particular interest for macro photography and
   a great eye for nudibranchs.

Have a look at Rob's Photos!

Pacific Northwest Diver: Robert R


Virpi Kangas

≈ Past President: Virpi K.

A trip to Australia's Great Barrier reef turned Virpi's wish of scuba diving into reality.

She certified in BC prior to her trip in 2008 and was hooked! That passion for diving quickly extended to others as Virpi certified as a Master Scuba Diver Trainer.

While diving she enjoys taking pictures, talking to the critters (yes, some listen) and conducting surveys for REEF.



≈ Dive Coordinator: Alex E. 


≈ Member at Large: Cherrein A.


Cindy Juren
≈ Member at Large: Cindy J.

Cindy joined the club in 2004, only a few years after taking up scuba diving, and thoroughly enjoys both local diving as well as traveling the globe exploring tropical dive sites.

She has close to 800 dives and still thoroughly logs each dive. Cindy has been active in organizing Pescadero group trips, including several four day weekends to dive at Hood Canal in Washington State. a week long club trips to Hawaii (2013) and a 12 day club trip to Bali (2015).


Clarisse Baudot

≈ Secretary: Clarisse B.

Clarisse learned how to scuba dive in the Mediterranean sea in the 90s, she thought that the sport was inaccessible, like going to the moon, and there she is, never stopped doing it since.

She's travelled to the Caribbean’s, the Red Sea, Bali, Thailand, the Atlantic Ocean on both sides, some lakes (quite boring), the St-Lawrence River, Thousand Islands in Ontario, and finally to the beautiful Pacific Ocean in California, Washington State, and British Columbia.

Clarisse really likes our waters even if they are cold because the marine life is so alive and the coast, pristine.
She joined the Pescaderos in 2011 starting with a trip to the Mermaid. Yes there are mermaids around here. Diving is like flying, and Clarisse feels lucky to be able to explore the precious water world.

≈ Treasurer: Doug B

Doug has been our Club's Treasurer for ever! He loves a good pun and keeps up 'afloat'. At our Annual General Meeting of November 2014, the Vancouver Pescaderos Dive Club Membership voted to award Doug an Honorary Lifetime Membership as a small 'thank you' for 20 years of dedicated service as the Club's Treasurer.


Mike Juren

≈ Membership Coordinator: Mike J.

An experienced diver, an amazing walking encyclopedia, Mike has 20 certifications in recreational and technical diving. He speaks 3 languages and is going onto 3000 dives.  He joined the Vancouver Pescaderos Diving Club in 2004.
