About RICH Nukolczak

Rich was born and raised in Baltimore County, Maryland; however, after serving in the United States Navy, he was fortunate to make Calvert County his home.  Rich works full-time at Exelon’s Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant as a Senior Reactor Operator.


Rich got Open Water Certified in 2007 and his first dive was at EPCOT in the Living Seas attraction.  Since then he achieved Divemaster in 2018 and Assistant Instructor in 2019.  Rich works part time in the shop and assists with dive trips as an experienced divemaster.  Over the years he has developed practical expertise with a vast array of dive gear.  Rich can aid in everything from your mask to equipping you with the full scuba kit best suited for you and your needs. 

Rich dives frequently in a variety of locales, and relishes each new experience.  He has logged countless dives from wreck and meg tooth diving in North Carolina to The Great Blue Hole in Belize, and everything in between.  His favorite dive to date, however, would have to be Darwin’s Arch in the Galapagos.  Rich would love to chat with you about your favorite dives, answer any questions you may have, or help you figure out where you should dive next!
