Gene Krahe
NAUI Dive Instructor #18755

Gene was always intrigued by the underwater world.  He finally took the plunge in 1991 and became a certified diver along with his wife and still favorite dive buddy Karen.  After several specialty courses and becoming a certified training assistant, he wanted to help teach others to scuba dive. He became a NAUI scuba instructor in 1996 and still loves to see the smiles on the faces of new students as they breathe on scuba for the first time or experience their first open water dive.  His favorite diving is on the wrecks at the bottom of Lake Erie or off the coast of North Carolina. Gene teaches Scuba Diver, Advanced, Nitrox Diver and his favorite, Rescue Diver.

DW / Prep Aquatics Center
Sundays for 5 weeks


Larry Schaller
NAUI Dive Instructor #11653

In 1980 Larry's brother-in-law talked him into trying scuba diving. The brother-in-law then promptly moved away but Larry was hooked continuing on to become a NAUI instructor in 1989. Larry teaches our Eastside YMCA program on Sundays as well as Advanced, Wreck and Ice diving. Larry particularly enjoys hearing about the students’ experiences after they get certified and says “try it and see how easy and fun Scuba is!”. Larry is also the Erie area's Boy Scouts of America Scuba Merit Badge counselor.
