Don Peterson’s diving career has followed the development of the industry’s gear. He started diving in the early 70’s on a double hose reg. He turned professional in the 80’s as the dive industry started to serve the needs of a more diverse population. In the 90’s Octopus Gardens was born and Diane joined forces with Don to develop and market custom and comprehensive education and travel packages. It was also when Don, and later Diane, got involved in Tech Diving and Video Production.  In the New Millennium Dive Tech. Inc was born and the focus has shifted to equipment service and repair. Diane has left the broadcast industry and now works full time in fitness and runs Octopus Gardens travel and education. Together they have produced their own videos and assisted Jean Michel-Cousteau and National Geographic Explorer in their filming projects.


Don has spent over 25 years developing his craft as a master technician. He is backed by multiple manufacturer certifications and experience. He serves divers and dive stores through out the United States .
