David Cullen is one of the three owners of Aqua Trek Dive Shop. David has been around Scuba diving his entire life and his passion for the sport is very evident after spending more than a few minutes with him. The Cullen family ran the Aqua Trek dive shop in Galveston area back in the late 1970’s. In 2011, the Aqua Trek family business got back up and running with his parents Chick, Debbie and himself attending DEMA. At DEMA that year they began laying the groundwork for opening a retail SCUBA shop in the DFW Metroplex. Aqua Trek reopened a retail storefront in 2012 and have been working to help promote the sport of SCUBA diving ever since! David became an SSI Open Water Instructor in 2013 and has continued his love of the sport by trying to teach new people how to be safe and comfortable in the water.

David has taught classes and made dives all around the state of Texas including Spring Lake in San Marcos, Lake Stillhouse Hollow in Belton, Clear Springs Scuba Park in Terrell, Wheeler Branch in Glen Rose, but his favorite place to dive in Texas is Balmorhea State Park out in west Texas. He has also led trips and taught classes to sites in Florida and Oklahoma.

 Some of his favorite moments from diving include the Night Manta Ray Dive in Kona Hawaii, the Sting Ray City dive in Grand Cayman, and of course the Shark Feeding Dive in the Bahamas. His favorite type of dive trip is on a Liveaboard dive boat, where he has earned 8 Iron Diver awards and hopes to earn many more!
