We return from the Bahamas with lots of stories of the fun things we saw and did above and underwater. We had some milestones to celebrate: Maureen and Donnie completed their PADI Open Water Diver Certification. And Gerry logged his 100th dive. Congratulations to all.

Diving with Stuart Cove's was a pleasure. A real first class operation. Our captain and divemasters were professional and personable, and we had the same crew on our own boat each day. We saw lots of sharks and marveled at these beautiful creatures as they swam around us by the dozen during the shark feed dive. The 75 degree water was warmer than at home, but still a bit chilly for many of us as some of us doubled their layers of neoprene to keep from being too cold in the water after multiple dives each day.

Aside from the shark dives, the highlight for many of us was the night dive, where we explored a great dive site and saw how the reef comes alive after dark.

The weather was very nice, except for a downpour one afternoon that got us all soaked as we went out for a fish fry dinner in Nassau.

Thanks to Gerry and Scott for contributing their photos to our collection.

Next trip: Roatan, Honduras in October. Who's in???



Another busy weekend in the classroom and pool for our latest batch of Open Water Diver students. This class had a lot of personality, and we all had a ton of fun together.

Here are some of the comments from the students on their evaluations:
"Everyone had fun and learned useful scuba skills."
"It was amazing!"
"Even though it was tiring, it was a great way to experience scuba diving."
"I liked the personal attention to every student. Attention to details and emphasis on safety precautions."
"Paul and Chris were excellent instructors and took the time to make sure everyone was able to move on to the next skill."
"The whole experience was great."
"This course would appeal to many different people."

Soon we'll see the group out at Dutch Springs to do their Open Water Dives and finish their certification.
