About the Owner:
Jessica Pickering purchased Maui Diving July 2017 after the original owner of 28 years decided to retire to another tropical paradise called Florida. Jessica spent her time traveling the world and scuba diving while simultaneously working on the marketing and graphic design business she owned, Creative Soup, since she was 18 years old. On one of these adventures in Fiji she met her husband Steven and they started a life together in San Diego. San Diego was a bit too cold for that island boy, so she went searching for a place that would still feel like home for him and not be too far away from family in California. While looking on the PADI classifieds for instructor jobs for Steven, she found a “Dive Shop For Sale” listing and called the number in the classifieds. Two months later she had moved to Maui, and 6 weeks after that the shop was hers. “Its been a whirlwind of life getting to this point, but I know that this is where we’re meant to be. Things have fallen in place and the business is flourishing with the new ideas and attention to detail I’ve brought with me”, says Jessica.
