Kinich Ahau Chac Diver History

In the beginning Kinich Ahau Chac Divers had no name. Spawned in 1992, during a dive trip on the Florida Keys, an idea was born; to charter a live-aboard dive boat, and fill it up with friends for a 10 day long trip to Belize, on and above the water. It took 12 months to fill that boat and the trip was so successful that the initial group of 18 decided to do it again the following year. That time the staterooms were filled in 18 hours. The group gradually enlarged and dove together yearly, increasing individual dive skills and seeing a variety of fish, crustaceans and corals, while at every opportunity bundling travel packages as the group dove all over the world. Steve Holmstrom, the groups fearless and intrepid leader, earned the Mayan title, Kinich Ahau Chac, while on that initial Belize expedition created from the words Sunny-eyed Rain Lord. Since Belize, we have been diving in Turks & Caicos, Roatan, Grand Cayman (several times), Costa Rica, Little Cayman, Cozumel (several times), Cocos Island (twice) Papua New Guinea, La Paz, Akumal, Palau, Yap, Wakatobi, Fiji, Quada Island off Vancouver Island (British Columbia, Canada), Galapagos Islands, Philippines, Jost Van Dyke (BVI), Bonaire, Kona, Thailand.  Sailing/Dive trips (chartering our own sailboats) to British Virgin Islands, Tonga and Tahiti.  We’ve also made a land photo Safari to Machu Picchu, Kenya and Cambodia.   This website contains .pdf books, and videos from past trips and information on future trips.
