Shannon Crosby


A Brief Bio:

Shannon grew up surrounded by land in the middle of the continent--Missouri. Planning to study marine biology, scuba was always on her radar of things she must achieve. In college, she took a scuba diving course and did her first 40 dives over two weeks in Cozumel, Mexico. It is safe to say that after that trip, biology was no longer the focus of her diving experiences.

After moving to Los Angeles in 2014, Shannon finally lived by the ocean. She became a PADI and SDI scuba instructor, and so her interests slowly became focused on being a dive professional. After teaching scuba for a few years, it only made sense to also become involved in helping her dive students and other divers travel to explore their newfound hobby!

When she's not working, you'll find Shannon reading/hiking in Griffith Park near her home, attending a movie, eating and cooking lots of good food, or hanging with her dog, Milo. 



"My wife and I decided to book a trip for 4 and were interested in a particular trip with specific accommodations. As it turned out there was only one time slot available that met all the requirements. We had initially requested pricing from the liveaboard agency (3rd party) , who then locked in the rooms freezing them from being booked. Unfortunately, they went dark, not communicating with us at all. Subsequently, we reached out to the Bluewater staff on a different trip as an alternative in the same time frame.

We were fortunate to work with Shannon at Bluewater on that trip. She was able to provide some feedback on the liveaboard we were considering and discuss some other options. In passing I mentioned that we really preferred this other trip but had concerns about actually getting it booked. She advised that she in fact could book it for us if the other agency wasn’t responding. The original agency still hadn’t responded and we took her up on her offer.
She spent the next two days chasing down the info, determined that in fact the accommodations were blocked based on our request as suspected, and contacted the provider to reserve them for us when they fell off from the other agency.
We were finally able to get the original hold waived off when that agency responded to repeated inquiry. We booked immediately with Shannon a few minutes later, as she had received notice that they were available and emailed us seconds later. She was able to secure the trip and accommodations for us in just a few short minutes.
Working with Shannon made us feel like we were the only customer she was helping. Now of course that wasn’t the case, but it really was like having our own personal travel agent. We can’t recommend her and Bluewater strongly enough. You won’t be disappointed."- Tony and Kathy K.
