Scubatyme III  Crew

Enzo Varalla
Enzo VarallaScubatyme III Owner
Enzo Varalla has 20 years of diving experience in Europe, Africa, the Caribbean and the USA including, naturally, South Florida. He is a PADI Instructor since 1999 which enabled him to juggle his passion for diving with corporate life, who doesn’t dream of the big escape? Enzo had been a loyal Scubatyme customer since 1994, so when the business came on the market in 2006, he happily left Italy and corporate world for a new adventure. You’ll see him on the dock getting you checked in, on board as mate, and in the water as a guide for diving groups. Expect service with a smile. He may be a native Italian, but let’s just say he’s found “La Dolce Vita” here in South Florida.

Robert Wranovics Jr. (Captain Bob) hails from NY. A retired NYPD refugee, Bob has loved the ocean for years. In his spare time from the force, he worked on the fishing boats off the East Coast & took regular trips to Florida for the fantastic diving.

A licensed boat captain since 1978, he currently holds a 100 ton USCG Masters license, and is a PADI instructor as well. He joined Scubatyme Charters in 2009 where he has found his second home. If you are from NY, I am sure he will know someone you know.
Amanda Landress

There are those that claim that Arkansas has some decent diving, but when you are as passionate about the sea as Amanda, you just have to find a state with more coastline. Armanda arrived in Florida in 2004 and joined the Scubatyme III crew soon after. In addition to diving and diving and diving, she also finds occasional moments to follow studies in criminal justice and anthropology.
Adam Nardelli

He has over 13 years of experience diving in many of the corners of the world. He has a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Tampa and a Master of Science degree from the Nova Southeastern Oceanographic Center, studying the control and monitoring of the invasive Indo-Pacific Red Lionfish.
