Scuba Shack fleet, the Narwhal, and Lighthouses

Scuba Shack Weekly – Volume 2, Number 14

We are back from Beneath the Sea. This was my first time attending the show and I would classify it as a mini DEMA. Enjoyed it and will have some additional information here as well as on the podcast – Scuba Shack Radio.

Scuba Shack Radio is now on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, Android and Blubrry list. I published episode 2 on Saturday. Feedback is important and I would very much appreciate if you give it a review. Thanks.

We are starting another open water class this week with four more students. I will be teaching this one and Ron will be helping me. Two of these students will be coming down to Key Largo to complete their open water certification dives. This should be fun and we are hoping to be able to offer this option for early season certifications in Key Largo every year.

If you’ve been around the shop lately you will notice a new addition to the Scuba Shack fleet. Monty has procured a trailer to support our diving. With Mike’s help they are working diligently to get it ready for the season. With my white van, our trusty old Scuba Shack van and the trailer, we have a lot of options now for hauling gear.

Anyone ever see a narwhal? What a unique sea creature. I came across an article on the Ocean Conservancy website that discussed the narwhal and specifically about its most unique characteristic – the tusk. Enjoy the read.

I have always been interested in lighthouses and we certainly have our share here in New England. There is a rich history of lighthouses starting from the earliest days of America. I recently finished a book by Eric Jay Dolin – “Brilliant Beacons – A History of the American Lighthouse.” It was very informative and provided some great insights into these amazing structures and the people who managed them. Here is a short video on the book.

We are off to Key Largo.

Thanks for tuning in,

Jeff
