Garrison first became part of the GXG family when he joined the student crew on Seamester’s summer 2019 voyage from Tahiti to Australia. Being from Tennessee it was quite a transition to boat life, but it didn’t take long for him to fall in love with sailing and scuba diving. After his trip he stayed on as a volunteer crew member for one final voyage. Last year he lived on the island of Utila in Honduras for six months, gaining his PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor certification, despite the hurdles caused by Covid. He is also qualified to instruct the Deep, Wreck, Enriched Air Nitrox, Full Face Mask, and Adaptive Techniques SCUBA specialties. When on the mainland, Garrison enjoys reading, hiking, and cooking excessively nice dinners for a college student. This will be his first summer with ActionQuest and he’s excited to pass on his passions for the ocean and discovering new places to students this summer!
