About Us


What is that fish? What is it doing? What in the world is that?! When you enter the deep blue, you are greeted with endless mystery. With hundreds of fish before you, there is a lot to learn.

That's why I started Underwater Spotter. If we haven't met, my name is Shelby Drake, and I founded this company out of my love for scuba diving and the ocean. When my family and I first went scuba diving together, we always struggled to identify the fish we saw and understand their interesting behavior.

The fish guides that were available often contained thousands of species, which made it overwhelming for my family and I to focus on the most common fish that we would encounter on our dives. Most guides also didn't cover fish behavior, leaving us unaware of what strange and fascinating things fish were doing underwater.

That's why I decided to create a fish identification guide that focused on the top 50 fish in a given area, taught people how to identify fish families, and provided insights into the interesting behaviors of these creatures. Our guides make it easy and fun to learn about all the exciting life underwater.

At Underwater Spotter, we are committed to spreading awareness about the importance of ocean conservation. We donate 10% of our profits to ocean charities, so you can feel good about your purchase knowing that you're helping to protect our planet.

Thank you for choosing Underwater Spotter, and happy diving!
