We took a trip out to “Spankey’s” and Capt. Pete’s Reef yesterday. What an amazing afternoon of diving! Great visibility and tons of life. 7 nurse sharks on Pete’s and some beautiful life at “Spankey’s”. The grunts were so heavy at Pete’s you could barely see parts of the reefs. Congratulations to Joe B. from Canada on earning his PADI Open Water certification.
A customer came by our shop the other day to share some great pictures. Thank you David Laporte from Clinton Township, Michigan for stoping by and sharing. Tom and Pam Timmerman certified David as a PADI Open Water Diver back in 1982, the year before Florida Keys Dive Center opened. Does anyone remember the name of the shop they were with that year? Check out Tom’s Beard!
My wife & I completed our 4 open water dives this week to complete our open water scuba cert. YAHOO!!! I am a stroke survivor, with some physical challenges, Joe very patiently reviewed all the required skills and guided us along the course to this very significant achievement! He was challenged with my limitations, and met every hurdle with his great CAN DO ATTITUDE. Considering the amount of skills testing we covered, I never felt rushed or hurried. Capt Greg was very helpful with the water entries & exits, and his local knowledge was very informative. We were lucky that the other students on the boat were good people. Thanks, buddies! & we wish Florida Keys Dive Center!
