Daryl Deroche is a scuba instructor with Harry’s Dive Shop and Metairie Diving School. He thoroughly enjoys scuba diving but also tinkers with carpentry and other handyman jobs. Daryl’s favorite movie is The Guardian, his favorite music is Easy Listening and his most preferred marine creature is the Greater Hammerhead Shark. Daryl’s claim to fame is his innate ability to make something useful out of practically anything. Hence the reason he is referred to as Diver Mc Guyver.
When Daryl was ten years old, he wanted to be a commercial fisherman. Daryl got into scuba diving when his brother-in-laws airboat sank and he watched divers descend to retrieve it. His favorite diving experience was his dive to the flight deck of the Oriskany, the world’s largest artificial reef off the Florida coast. Because Daryl is a treasure hunter by nature, coming across special underwater “finds” is what intrigues him most.
