Exciting addition to Indonesia trip!

We got some very exciting news yesterday; during our stay at the Lembeh Resort this July, two of the region’s most experienced underwater naturalists will be there also. It’s Fish Geek Week, and we couldn’t be more thrilled about that! Gerald Allen and Mark Erdmann will be there from July 18 to 26, 2014 and will be conducting a number of presentations, as well as being available for questions, dives, and general hanging out.

This wonderful opportunity comes at no cost to us, so take advantage!

Emergency First Response Instructor in the house!

One of the best things about being a scuba diver is that there is always more to learn. At Atkins Scuba, we are firm believers in continuing education, and that includes for ourselves! At the DEMA show in November, Kari took some next steps and became an Emergency First Response Instructor Trainer. This means that in addition to being able to teach you the provider course and work on your EFR skills, she can now make you an instructor, ready to teach your own students! It was a fantastic experience, and it feels GOOD to keep learning!

Two trips to Cozumel in 2013!

Hello! As we noted in this post, we’re currently in Cozumel working with our beloved Blue Angel Resort to make the Blue Angel Scuba School a vibrant and exciting training venue.

We’d love it if you’d come visit, and to make it easy for you to do that, along with some like-minded diving friends, we’re putting together two group trips in 2013.

Check out these details, and when you have questions send us an email!

Thanks to our friends Amy Walczak and Warren McKay for their support in poster-making and photographs. Amy is a self-proclaimed dive junkie; you can read her fantastic blog here, and check out Warren’s photo blog here!

We’re settled in and we’re staying a while! We are working with our friends at Blue Angel Resort to help make this a destination for top-notch, safety-oriented scuba training that is FUN! We’re in the midst of launching the Blue Angel Scuba School, and we’d love for you to come along on our journey. You can “like” us on Facebook, “follow” us on Twitter, and check out our YouTube channel for some great videos of “A Day in the Office.” p.s. one of the videos has DOLPHINS!

We’d love to see ALL of you! Post a photo of yourself, leave us a message, or best of all, come visit.

Congratulations, Open Water Divers!

Summer in Alberta is a beautiful time of year, and by August, Narrow Lake has warmed up considerably! We headed there last week to complete the Open Water dives for a family of four, and it was a fantastic two days in the water. As we learned in class, if the ears don’t clear, call the dive and come back another day; it was a little disappointing when one guppy had some trouble equalizing on the last dive, but we’ve rescheduled her for the first week in September.

Congratulations, Allaries! You did a great job!

Kari, Maya, Christie, Emma, Matthew and Kent
