A Day in the Life of a Diver : Becoming a Master Scuba Diver Trainer Part 3

By | No Comments

We arrived at the store several hours before the Instructor Exam (IE) so that the Sea Experience staff could go through our paper work and do a gear check. After ensuring all of our IE paperwork was completed and all our gear was loaded up, we packed up and drove out to Nova University where our test and presentations would take place.

We entered in the classroom and the examiner informed us on how the IE would play out. Day One would be pool demonstrations and skills, followed by the exams in the afternoon. After the exams, we would give our knowledge review presentations. Day Two would be at Tiger Tail Lake. Any testing that needed to be retaken would be accomplished before the open water presentations on Day Two.

Beginning Scuba – Part 4

By | No Comments

Week 5 of my Beginning scuba class was at the pool again. In my rush to be on time, I forgot my boots and contacts. Since I can’t wear my mask over my glasses and I can’t see without corrective lenses, Jerry, my instructor, sent me back home to get my boots and contacts and called another instructor, Jenny, to come and catch me up when I got back. I arrived back at the pool before Jenny got there, so after I set up my equipment, I got to sit at the edge of the pool and watch what the rest of the class was doing.

When Jenny got to the pool, she had me start by doing a back roll into the pool. The back roll was even scarier than the controlled seated entry. I had to make sure I had inflated my BCD and had my mask on and my regulator in my mouth, then I had to scoot back until my butt was over the edge of the pool. Jenny held my tank so it didn’t drag my backwards into the pool before I was ready. She showed me how to hold all all of my equipment in place, so it doesn’t go flying and I don’t lose anything on the entry, then she let me fall back into the water.

Meet Jenny Otte – Dive Professional

By | Comments Off on Meet Jenny Otte – Dive Professional

This month we want you to meet Jenny Otte. Jenny is our Dive Center Manager here at Aquatic Adventures and one of our many amazing women divers that work hard in and out of the water.  If you have visited Aquatic Adventures, Jenny’s big smile is the one you normally see. Jenny has been the Dive Center Manager for almost two years and never thought this is where diving would take her.

She started diving her senior year of high school. Her dad always wanted to try scuba so naturally he wanted Jenny to try it too. After some convincing, Jenny’s mom agreed to let her try it because she was about to go off to school to study marine biology.  What started as a fun adventure with dad turned into a life style. Her love for lakes and oceans only grew while she was at school. She quickly rose through the ranks to eventually become a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer — meaning that she has certified at least 25 PADI divers and can teach five different specialties.
