SeaTrek BVI is proud to present the next in our series of Staff Spotlights – Virgilio aka “VG” Gonzalez. Each month we will be highlighting an individual staff member so you can get to know us a little bit better. We all come from different backgrounds but have a special bond that truly makes us a family! #SeaTrekBVI #StaffSpotlight #SummerCampAtSea










Virgilio aka “VG” comes to SeaTrek from North Carolina. He has a wealth of diving knowledge and some of the craziest diving stories we have ever heard. VG is a NAUI Instructor, blending his passion with work. Not only is he an avid diver, but he is also SeaTrek’s resident jokster. VG is always plotting a prank or finding a way to make someone laugh. This winter you can find him back in the Caribbean teaching diving on the Avalon in the Bahamas.
