Mike has continued his education and is currently an Assistant Instructor. Mike has also ventured into the technical diving arena when he is not working with new divers.

Lee also is a United States Power Squadron certified boating safety instructor for both classroom and on the water boat handling training . He also holds a US Coast Guard Master Captains license. When asked where he dives he replies "anywhere from a mud puddle to the deep blue sea". He enjoys all aspects of diving from tropical open water wreck and reef diving to light salvage recovery work in limited visibility and cold water (dry suit required).
