Better Instruction Results in Better, More Committed Scuba Divers!

Sea Dwellers Dive Center of Key Largo has always taken pride in our Scuba Instruction, and we’ve always tried to offer more for our students. Most of you already know that we offer 6 Open Water dives with our basic Open Water Course, and this has made the course very popular for obvious reasons. But most importantly, we feel that we’re producing better scuba divers. From the feedback we’ve gotten from our students it seems that most agree! 

 

SSI & Sea Dwellers Dive Center of Key Largo… Offering More!

Scuba Schools International believes that the well-trained scuba diver is the “committed” scuba diver, and we couldn’t agree more. And we’re not only going to continue to offer more for our students, but we’re “upping the ante” so to speak. Extended time and experiences in the pool and open water environment will benefit everyone. Key Largo diving has never been better, and we’re proud to offer SSI Instruction to our customers and fellow scuba divers! 

 

Thanks and best to all from your Sea Dwellers Staff!

Your favorite Key Largo Dive Center, (yes, that’s Sea Dwellers, right?)…just spent part of last week completing our SSI Instructor Training Course. This means that we are now not only PADI Instructors but also SSI Instructors. Scuba Schools International, already one of the largest scuba diving Instructional agencies in Europe, is also expanding rapidly in the USA and now we’re happy to say that we’re a part of that!. 

Our staff had a great time!  SSI Instructor Trainer Michael Steidley ran the training and we can’t say enough about him. Michael has just a bit of experience in scuba diving….diving since 1968 with every certification you could possibly imagine…and then some. As most of you know our Instructors here at Sea Dwellers Dive Center are pretty darn experienced, but every one of us, (even Scott), got a lot out of our training with Michael.

Good Bye Scuba Instructor Daire!

Every summer, Sea Dwellers brings in help for the busy dive season.  This is in the form of Divemasters, Instructors, and daire1Divemaster Candidates.  This year, we had the pleasure of working with Daire Kennedy, a young PADI Instructor from Dublin Ireland.

Daire arrived at Sea Dwellers Dive Center in the nick of time!   After a slow winter and an average Spring, we were weary of a less-than-great scuba summer.  But as things worked out, the weather turned hot, the wind died down, the blue water came in, and the dive season took off big time. So Daire came at the right time. And being the intelligent young man that he is, he picked our system right up and, well…worked his tail off for 2 and a half months.  We all worked pretty hard, which is nice after being so unusually slow before the summer arrived.

Daire was an excellent Scuba Instructor as it turned out, and we got quite a few compliments about his work.  He’s also a good guy.  Now he’s heading back to Ireland to go back to school….start back to work on his degree in….Neuroscience. Yes, you heard me correctly…Neuroscience.

So we had a going-away party of sorts for Daire a few days ago.   The staff all got together to say good-bye, and thanks.  We all engaged in…well… in general revelry.   We all relaxed, cut loose a little, and had a few.   It was good fun bonding after working very hard for the summer.  We discussed our Scuba Instructional techniques;  reviewed our Dive Policies; talked over possible improvements; and compared class grading scales.  And we had a few.

But most importantly, we said good-bye to our new friend, Daire. We wish him all the best in the future, and hope to see him again in the not-too-distant future.

 

Learning to Dive

Here’s a perspective on “Learning to Scuba Dive, a Beginner’s Perspective”,  a video done by Boulder TV here at Sea Dwellers Dive Center in Key Largo with Rob Haff.  In it, Rob talks about scuba diving for the first time and how that feels to most of us “land creatures”  when we first immerse into the blue.   Rob also talks about how Sea Dwellers Dive Center understands this feeling that dive beginners have, and how we work to make it a good experience.

Diving in Key Largo for the first time is, for many, a wonderful experience that most will never forget.  Rob believes that for a lot of us, the “beginner’s experiences”, are some of the best experiences, as everything is new and exciting.
