A Day in the Life of a Diver : Becoming a Master Scuba Diver Trainer Part 1

By | No Comments

I finished the Divemaster program at Aquatic Adventures Inc. in November, and I enjoyed helping with the scuba training so much that I decided to become a scuba instructor. Although some people believe that the Divemaster rating is above that of Instructor, Divemaster is actually the first step in becoming a dive professional.

After asking around, I found out that there is a vocational school in Fort Lauderdale by the name of Sea Experience where the GI Bill would cover the cost of my scuba instructor training. After going to their website, I found a lot of information on their instructor development courses. I found that not only could I take classes to become an Open Water Scuba Instructor, I could also become a Master Scuba Diver Trainer, which means that I will be able to teach at least five specialties in addition to the basic scuba courses.

Aqua Cat Cruises

Livin’ it up on the Aqua Cat

SHARK! For some people hearing the cry “Shark!” is probably frightening. For those of us who dived the Aqua Cat this January, the cry of “Shark!” was a jubilant call to come to the deck to see what awaited us on the next dive.

As some of our friends out in Diving Land know, Aquatic Adventures has been diving with the crew of the Aqua Cat since its inaugural year 15 years ago. Our bi-annual trek to the Bahamas has, and always will be, my personal favorite dive trip. The Bahamas are not far away and the diving is spectacular. What more can you ask!

Why I will never buy from Leisure Pro

One of my saddest days of diving was the day I walked into my favorite dive center and learned that the store manager had quit to go to work for a local bank. I was devastated. Not only was he a great store manager, but he had been my instructor and mentor as I developed as a young diver. I felt like I had lost my best friend.

That night I called up my former instructor to find out what had happened. He told me that he had two young sons who needed to be fed, clothed, housed, and eventually sent to college. There was no way for him to take care of his boys on the salary he made working in the dive industry. As much as I wanted him to stay, I couldn’t argue with a man who was just trying to take care of his family.
