History of Fathom Five
Fathom Five is owned and operated by George Thompson & Jeannette Val Auber (Jeannette actually runs the company but lets George play with the cash register and the "air blowy thing" in the back to keep him occupied). After introducing all of their friends, family members (and anyone that happened to walk too close to George) to the sport they both share a common love for, they realized the only way to be truly happy was to make diving a permanent part of their lives.
Originally from California, George and Jeannette have lived on the island of Kauai for 18 years. After working for just about every dive shop on the island but finding none that they felt truly shared their love of the sport, they decided in 1995 to branch out on their own. They founded Ocean Quest Watersports, a shore dive company. After only 2 years of operation, they discovered that they had been rated by many publications as being one of the top rated dive companies in Kauai.
This sudden exposure and recognition gave them an idea... what if we could expand and offer our customers a "total dive solution", not just shore diving? This prompted the purchase of Fathom Five Divers. With Fathom Five Divers focusing on boat diving operations and Ocean Quest Watersports on shore diving, the two best companies have formed the perfect solution to everyone's diving needs.
