Vinny Bedus

PADI IDC Staff Instructor

Where's your hometown?

This is a bit complicated. With a name like Vinny, most would imagine I am not originally from Texas, but I got here as fast as I could. I was born in the Bronx (NY). We moved upstate to a small town where I lived most of my life of Beacon, NY. I feel like I should have originated from here, so I would say McKinney.

When did you start scuba diving?

About 2009 or so.

What or who got you into diving?

I was on vacation in Aruba, and I can't seem to sit still on vacation. And there isn't a ton to do in Aruba. I thought I would try out diving and just simply feel in love.

What's your favorite place to dive?

Aruba. We have a friend that owns a local dive shop which is awesome. There is plenty to see and there are things for the family to do.

What's the best thing about diving?

There are no cell phones, no talking which really leads to the serenity of Diving.

What's the coolest thing you've seen or experienced while diving?

There was a 10 foot in radius ball of fish. A barracuda had swam along the bottom of the ball of fish. The fish formed a cone where the barracuda had swam along and then returned when he passed. It was a pretty unique experience.
