Four years ago a brash New Yorker strode in to Evolution and demanded to speak to someone in charge. With great trepidation, David stepped forward to see what this brassy wiseguy wanted. Joey G proceeded to shake down David with questions about why he should choose Evolution as his dive shop to complete his Divemaster training. Fast forward 4 years and Joey G is now an annual visitor with a great DM under his belt but more importantly, he also graduated to the highest standards with TDI’s Advanced Nitrox, Decompression Procedures, Extended Range, Trimix and Advanced Wreck.
Badabing! Joey’s a made guy!
This year Joey G was back for some great tech diving and made us an offer we couldn’t refuse. With his very nice new GoPro5 set up with great video lights he set about documenting his dives with us. Joey’s passion is for wrecks, so the Mogami Maru got the Scorcese treatment and the results are just great as you can see here for yourselves. The Omertá on one of the best dives in the Visayas has been lifted.
The Mogami Maru is our very own Japanese WWII wreck, sunk by an aerial attack off Malapascua in 1944 and has been dived by Evolution over 500 times! This video is just one of those dives on a glorious day in May. Tell me about it!
The Mob diving with Joe included Don David and Julia ‘The Tooth’ and nearby with Don Matt were Mikey ‘Bagpipes’, brothers ‘Mini’ Martin and ‘Tiny’ Thomas being watched by Capo Andy and finally in there also were ‘Not so Fat’ Tony’ and adding some muscle was Dannie ‘The Plugger’ Holmstedt. Hey, forget about it!

Disclosure: Joey G is of Irish, English and German descent and was born in New Jersey but we just can’t help enjoying the whole NYC goombah thing every time we see him.
