Beginning Scuba – Part 5

By | Comments Off on Beginning Scuba – Part 5

After a lot of help from Jenny and Ben, two of Aquatic Adventures’ instructors, I was able to complete the pool training for my Open Water certification. I took a lot longer than the one weekend most people complete pool training in, but that was okay since I began the class in February and I couldn’t do my check out dives until the lakes thawed out.

Jerry, my instructor, would not take me to Pearl Lake, where we did the check out dives, earlier than June without taking the drysuit class because he was worried I would get too cold in a wetsuit. I ended up doing the dives at the end of June, when the water had warmed up nicely.

Visit Bonaire: Welcome to Diver’s Paradise

In January 2017 Aquatic Adventures will visit Bonaire for the first time in several years. Having been to Bonaire and its close neighbor Curacao many times, I was asked by the staff to write a blog to share a few thoughts about this amazing little island.

Geography and Weather

Bonaire is one of three islands off the northern coast of Venezuela known as the ABC islands. Moving from west to east, the ABCs include Aruba, Curacao, and Bonaire. Because these islands are outside of the hurricane belt, they are ideal destinations to visit as the weather remains consistently warm and dry all year long.

Sam Heine is new to diving, but he’s quickly grown to love the sport. Beginning with his Open Water Diver certification last June, he’s earned eight PADI certifications and become a Divemaster candidate in the year he’s been diving.

Heine, a student at UW-Milwaukee, began diving when he needed a recreation class to help boost his GPA. He chose Skin & Scuba, the beginning scuba course Aquatic Adventures offers through UWM. “It was just awesome. I took the Advanced (Open Water Diver course) because I needed to get out again. The next thing you know, I’m an addict.”
