Robert Trosset III

Robert Trosset III

Owner / Captain / Instructor

Robert Trosset III grew up with the Gulf Flats as his backyard. Whenever he could, he would go off exploring mangrove islands, catching fish and learning his way around the beautiful Florida Keys waters. After graduating from college, he moved back to Key West and started running various boats for other companies. It only took a few years for Robert to realize there was a serious gap for scuba divers wanting a more personal scuba dive experience in Key West. Taking what he learned from the dive industry and from college, Robert was able to bring the small island scuba dive feel to Key West with Finz.
