And welcome to

Our site is going through a facelift, reflecting changes in my career and professional focus.

For nearly six decades, I have been a dedicated dive professional. I learned to dive while in the Air Force and started my own scuba school in the Philippines in 1966. I called it Joe Liburdi’s Scuba School. About as original a name as my last venture, Joe Liburdi’s Dive & Photo.

Over the years I have been a scuba instructor, dive shop owner, professional underwater photographer, author, photo educator, tour leader, and have received industry honors for doing what I love.

But the greatest reward has always been teaching you and traveling with you.

Cara and I organize and lead trips to the world’s most fascinating places. Take a tour of this site and see where we’ve been and the joyful faces of people who have traveled with us.

Please watch for details of our next adventurers. Then, let’s go diving!
