Turks & Caicos, Cousteau and our annual Nassau trip

Scuba Shack Weekly – Volume 1, Number 8

Another week has gone by and our weather has turned from summer to late fall really fast. New England can be tricky this time of year. We will try to get as much diving in as we can.

The Scuba Shack trip to Turks and Caicos is well underway. There has been some great weather down there and mother nature is making for some fantastic diving – trip report to follow. Over the past weekend we certified seven new open water divers. Great job to all our students. Chris and Matt completed several advanced open water dives for the public safety team from Massachusetts. The final touches have been worked out for an open water weekend class in early November. It is great to be busy and more importantly keeping our traditions alive.

I recently listened to an interview by Fabien Cousteau on the podcast Unphiltered (embedded below). Fabien talked about the things that are threatening our oceans, some things that we can do about it, and some of the things his foundation is doing. The interview is about 35 minutes and hopefully will give you a little inspiration towards making a difference in the health of the oceans.

As we continue to plan out our travel schedule for 2019, we are working with Stuart Cove for our Nassau to have the same options as last year which included the afternoon 2-tank SeaDoo (DPV) option. Feedback from last year was that this was an extremely popular added feature. The details will be finalized in November when we meet with Stuart while at DEMA (Dive Equipment Manufacturing Association) Show in Las Vegas. Peter cannot wait and has already made his plane reservations at a very good price. This Memorial Day trip is our most popular trip.

So, in closing out this week, just remember – there are only two months to Christmas. Scuba gear makes a great gift.

As always, thanks for tuning in,
