It’s been a busy week at Dolphin Dive Center! I apologize for not getting our regular Tuesday blog posted; we’ve been hard at work to bring some exciting new programs to DDC. (More on that below!) In a nutshell, here’s what’s been going on:
Tim and his fellow dive trippers returned from their epic vacation in the Maldives. They seized life on the liveaboard Carpe Vita, and during their ten day stay they dove with 16-foot wingspan manta rays, swarms of 50+ sharks, whale sharks, and dense schools of fish. We have Tim’s photos posted on our site (click here to view) and we look forward to posting other divers’ shots soon.
DDC instructor Jeremy Reaves is gearing up for the Open Water Diver certification class this weekend. He will instruct 5 students, who will be joined by a few divers participating in the Scuba Skills Refresher course. If you missed the deadline this month, remember that Dolphin Dive Center teaches the Open Water Diver class every first weekend of the month. Be sure to enroll at least a week in advance, giving yourself time to attend the short orientation session and complete the necessary course preparation work.
Now for some exciting new developments:
As many of you know, DDC’s Dive Club has entered its second year, and our membership remains strong and enthusiastic. This year we’re amping things up by developing programs to give our organization more structure and direction. Some events in the works are:
- A Discover Scuba program with the Boys and Girls Club of Athens, introducing the joys of scuba diving to their middle schoolers while embracing the B&GC mission to inspire and enable those young people to realize their full potential as responsible, caring and productive citizens.
- A Teach a Vet to Dive program with area veterans organizations that will bring a renewed sense of independence and adventure to our nation’s heroic warriors.
- Collaboration with the dive club from the Aquatic Explorers Society in Lawrenceville, including environmental dive trips, dive trips to area lakes, joint lake clean-up ventures, and an Ultimate Dive Challenge.
