Myron Haynes

Dive Instructor &Dive Shop Owner

After starting his dive store in 1981 in Maplewood, MN, Myron moved Northland Scuba twice to its current location in Oakdale, MN. With a focus on Pacific travel, we have since taken 100’s of divers to diverse locations around the world. These include Truk Lagoon, Palau, Yap, Saipan, Ulithi, Kosrae, Australia, Bali Indonesia, Fiji, Tahiti, Tonga and the Philippines. Many locations in the Caribbean like Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, Little Cayman, Roatan Honduras, Bonaire, Curacao, Saba, Dominica and the Bahamas were also destinations. Before a trip is offered, a thorough checkout of services and related activities is completed to assure a memorable experience will be had by all. If you want to turn your mask into a kaleidoscope of color from rich sea fans to neon colored blemies; dive with sharks on almost every dive and see up to 700 different species of coral and 1500 different species of fish; see Manta’s and Pigmy Sea Horses; dive with Minke Whales and do it all in warm ocean water with white sandy beaches, and warm sea breezes, all of this can be yours. You owe yourself that “Once in a Life Time Dream Vacation”. Northland Scuba can take you there.

Diving the Philippines

Myron’s presentation is full of the diversity of diving found in the Philippines. From Tubbataha Reef located in the Sulu Sea, at the center of the Coral Triangle rarely visited by tourists due to it’s location and it’s status as a marine preserve to the world renowned Apo Island with its was, stunning coral and schooling fish to the Dauin coastline with some of the world’s rarest critters. Then on to Moalboal with a huge variety of marine life from very small nudibranchs to very big whale sharks.
