It was a great day on the water with flat and calm seas for Brian and Amanda’s Rescue Diver certification dives. Now certified as PADI Rescue Divers, both will immediately start the PADI Divemaster program to become Divemasters at Narcosis Scuba Center! Congratulations Brian and Amanda!
After completing their dives for their rescue certification the crew noticed some “Happy Birthday” balloons floating in the water several miles offshore. Shiny plastic things are a sure death for sea turtles who mistake them for jellyfish, so the boat came to a stop while the crew fished the plastic balloons out of the water. Congratulations turtles (you don’t have to worry about choking to death on these balloons)!
The Gulf of Mexico is primed for diving as surface sea temperatures are in the mid-70s and climbing. The “pool is open” for a great summer season of diving – and please remember to keep plastic and trash out of the ocean!
