Pro development, History of Diving Museum, Captive whale ban in France

Scuba Shack Weekly – Volume 3, Number 42

Hope everyone had a great week. We had an opportunity to catch our breath this weekend after eight straight weekends of diving. It gave us a chance to do some clean up and organization in the repair shop area after a great deal of activity over the summer and early fall.

We also had a little time to complete our detailed syllabus for the 2021 Divemaster and Instructor Development Course. Please give us a call if you are interested in the details or check out our professional development section on the website. Divemaster will start in March and the Instructor Development Course starts in May.

We didn’t make it down to the History of Diving Museum in Key Largo this year. They are celebrating 15 years of operation and while we couldn’t get there in person, perhaps we can get there through their YouTube channel. There is some interesting stuff out there if you have an interest in our diving history.

Here is some news out of France. The French government is implementing a gradual ban on using whales and dolphins in captivity for entertainment. Their minister of ecological transformation says it is time for a new era. I couldn’t agree more.

Thanks for tuning in,
Jeff
