So You Can’t Equalize!

By | 1 Comment

I came across an article recently in a PADI newsletter called “When Your Divers Can’t Equalize” that caught my attention. The article opened by pointing out that the majority of calls to DAN’s emergency number are ear related.

Although the article was clearly intended for scuba instructors, my ears perked up and my whiskers began to twitch. Maybe finally, someone had written a pragmatic article on how to overcome basic ear issues. I couldn’t have been more wrong!

This month we’d like to introduce you to Kearney Carpenter, one of our newest sales staff members here at Aquatic Adventures. Kearney started diving with us through UW-Milwaukee’s Sport & Rec classes and loved it so much she wanted to come work for us here at the store.

Tell us about yourself, Kearney.

Beginning Scuba Diving – Part 2

By | No Comments

Yesterday I finished Day 2 of my Beginning Scuba class. As soon as I walked into the store, Jenny, my training consultant, had me try on a wetsuit to wear in the pool. Since I already did a Discover Scuba Diving class, I did not need to be fitted again for a buoyancy control device (BCD), but all of my classmates got to try on wetsuits and BCDs to find the perfect fit.

Once Jenny had our sizes, my instructor took us out to the sales floor to explain the equipment we would be learning to use. Even though I’ve been working at Aquatic Adventures since November and have some knowledge of the equipment from doing research for my job maintaining the online shopping cart and managing our social media accounts, I learned a few new things during our product tour. I knew from listening to other employees at the store that wearing boots can be beneficial for keeping creatures from stinging and biting you besides keeping your feet warm and protecting you when walking across rocks, but last night I also learned that they can help when walking across soft sand, because sand can be rough too when you’re carrying a lot of heavy scuba equipment.
