Who we are

Craig Shannon - Founder


Craig Shannon has spent the majority of his life underwater, whether it has been at work, spearfishing, diving for fun, or teaching diving. Craig started his diving career in 1997 while receiving his B.A. at Stephen F Austin University. He has been a PADI Master Scuba Dive Trainer since 2001 and a NAUI Course Director since 2015. He has over 4800 hours diving at NASA since he started his career with the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory in 2002 and has been promoted to Dive Operations Manager. In addition, Craig is an avid spearfisher. He has setup and hosted the Snapper Shootout, Platform Predators, and Spearmaster spearfishing tournaments in Galveston, Freeport, and Seabrook areas from 2006 to 2012. He is the founder of Texas Scuba Adventures, which began 10 years ago as an educational dive program that teaches high school students a discover scuba/science program. He has also certified countless divers since the inception of Texas Scuba Adventures and is looking forward to this new chapter in Galveston.

Kristen Maples - Co-Owner


Kristen Maples started her dive career 20 years ago but has been passionate about the underwater environment since she was a child. This passion led her to a career of working as a biologist. She has experience working in environmental toxicology labs, Fish and Wildlife populations studies, animal husbandry with a specialty in octopuses and sharks, and environmental education. Kristen joined the Texas Scuba Adventures Dive Team 5 years ago and fell in love with the programs they offer. She has worked with countless international high school students for a discover scuba/science program and assisted with the training of new and experienced divers. Her belief is that any day spent with someone underwater is a great day. Now, as co-owner, her and Craig have expanded Texas Scuba Adventures to bring it to Galveston and are excited about bringing this experience to the Galveston community and visitors.
