Eric Griffin


Eric Griffin joined our team as an employee of Harry’s Dive Shop and scuba instructor with Metairie Diving School in January 2013. When Eric was ten, he wanted to be a Marine Biologist. He was born and raised in Eleuthera, Bahamas. His favorite movie is Old School and he prefers to listen to Reggae and Soca music. Eric’s favorite dive was at “Hole in the Wall” in Nassau Bahamas. His favorite book is Me Talk Pretty Someday by David Sedaris. Hobbies include fishing, diving and gardening.

Eric comes to us from Stuart Cove’s in the Bahamas where he was a Shark Feeder and Designated Shark Wrangler. He and his wife, Jackie, love the life they share living in New Orleans where they never want for an outdoor activity or festival. Take a moment to bend Eric’s ear about the interesting personalities of specific sharks. Like a pet, he got to know some of them very well.
