Why the PADI Rescue Diver Class is so Important

He was 30 feet down under water…he was out of air and his mask was half full of water.  He signaled to his dive buddy “out of air” as he struggled to open the valve on the pony bottle of air.  His buddy pushed the pony bottle regulator into his mouth but kept his hand over the purge button.  He had no air left in his lungs to clear the regulator and could not access the purge button.  His eyes went wide, his lungs began to burn, panic was setting in…what happens now?*

Having recently taken the PADI Rescue Diver class, Tom and Makinon Herbert were glad to share their diving class experiences with me. With Open Water Diver, Advanced Open Water and Emergency First Response certifications already completed, both were ready to take their scuba training further.  Originally viewing Rescue Diver as just a class, they soon learned it was so much more.

Blackbird Caye Resort Beach

Ten Reasons To Go To Blackbird Caye

By | 2 Comments

Aquatic Adventures will be hosting a trip to Blackbird Caye Resort in Belize from October 21-28, 2017. Having visited Blackbird Caye on four separate occasions, I put together “ten reasons” why you should consider going to Blackbird. Here they are.

1. If doing the Great Blue Hole is on your bucket list, Blackbird Caye puts you about as close as you can get at only about 80 minutes away. The boat from Blackbird leaves at the usual time (instead of at dawn from San Pedro) and puts you in the water at the Great Blue Hole just after the boats from other resorts are leaving. When my husband Jim and I went last year, we dived the Blue Hole with just four other divers and had the experience all to ourselves.

Advanced Open Water

By | No Comments

A few weeks ago I began my Advanced Open Water certification. Jerry, my Open Water instructor, was my instructor again for Advanced Open Water. My classmates were three guys, and my dive buddy was a guy who had only been diving in warm tropical water before. He thought seeing a wreck on Lake Michigan would be exciting, but he wasn’t thrilled about going to Pearl Lake in Illinois for some of our dives because he thought it would be boring.

The dives we were doing for our certification were Peak Performance Buoyancy, Underwater Navigator, Search and Recovery, Wreck Diving and Deep Diving. Jerry had us come to the store on a Thursday to go over the bookwork and practice using a compass and tying knots.
