Desi Rivero

Boat Captain Boat Captain Bacalar Chico, Belize


Desi started working as a cook on the fishing boats when he was only 13 years old. After a year he became a fisherman, free diving for fish, conch and lobsters. In 2010 he joined Blue Ventures as a cook, during which time he also learnt to dive. Having recently finished his PADI Rescue Diver qualification, Desi is now working towards his Dive Master. He has been driving fishing boats for years and became a full-time boat captain for Blue Ventures in 2013. Desi is also the lionfish champion of Blue Ventures Belize - this goes for hunting as well as preparing them - ceviche, baked or fried! He is very happy that his job enables him constant development and is looking forward to become a dive instructor for Blue Ventures some day.
