Instructor Bio for Monte Lee Thornton, PADI Master Instructor, Over 20 years.
In 1996 when the internet was still young, I created Explore Underwater Online Magazine. Over the years following
everyone has been captured into the wonderful world of information technology.
As I reflect over the dreamers and heroes, who became founders and leaders of the underwater world, I realize
that they would embrace the internet as a means of getting information to a worldwide audience. It is my vision that
that this online magazine web site communicate knowledge for you to explore underwater.
Jacques-Yves Cousteau was a co-inventor in the creation of self contained breathing apparatus (SCUBA), which
fulfilled his vision and desire to make it possible for others to share in the adventures waiting under the sea. With the
creation of his television series, he shared the insight of his discoveries and changed forever the perspective that we have
regarding the sea. We learned from him that it must be protected for future generations.
As a young boy I longed to learn to scuba dive, and to explore the Underwater world. For years my mother would not give me permission
to learn. So I joined the US Army with a quaranteed station in Hawaii. I still didn't have her blessings, but I began what has led me
to becoming a PADI 30 Year Member, Underwater Photographer, a diving career, and experiences that exceeded my dreams.
In the articles section of Explore Underwater you will have the opportunity to read about my diving with whale sharks,
dolphins, sharks, and other marine life
encounters. I hope that by taking you on my adventures it will instill in you the desire to experience your own. The
oceans of our world hold
so many species to see. Underwater explorers are able to see more species in ten minutes on a coral reef, than they would spending ten days in the
ScubaRepublic.com and Visit Explore Underwater Online Magazine, it is our way of sharing our explorations with friends around the
world. We hope that you will visit often, and send us news of your explorations, and favorite discoveries. We'll share
them with others through this online magazine. Together, we'll all promote the adventure of exploring underwater.
