Open Water Update, Adopt a Shark, and My Ocean podcast

Scuba Shack Weekly – Volume 2, Number 10

The calendar has flipped to March and spring is not that far off. We will be heading to Boston Sea Rovers this weekend for all of the activities. The shop will be closed on Friday, March 8 and Saturday, March 9 as Monty, Donna, Matt and I head up to Danvers.

Our second weekend open water class finished up last week with Monty and Ron. Congratulations to Caitlin, Aparna, Jeff and Tom. Good luck to Caitlin and Aparna as they head out to Maui for their certification dives in a couple of weeks. We know they will do great and have a lot of fun diving in Hawaii. I know we always had great dives. Jeff and Tom, we will see you in Jamestown in May. Just wanted to also let everyone know that there are only a few spots left for Little Cayman in October.

Did you know that you can adopt a shark? I came across this item while doing some research. There is a website where you can actually adopt a shark. The sharks are resident to Fiji and are consistent visitors to the Shark Reef Marine Reserve (SRMR). There are about 200 individually named sharks. You can adopt one with a name, personality and behavior. The revenue from the adoption is used to support conservation measures and fund research.

I did want to share some new podcast news. I recently started listening to My Ocean. My Ocean: A weekly podcast that “takes listeners on an adventure into the minds of some of the world’s true ocean champions.” There is some great stuff here and interesting information. Here is an interview with Brian Skerry who we will be meeting at Boston Sea Rovers this week.

The dive season is almost here. We are excited as we are only a month away from Key Largo.

Thanks for tuning in,
Jeff
