Florida Sea Base Scuba Director Joe Angelo has announced that our next PAD Instructor Development Course will be held on 17-25 September with the PADI Instructor Exam to follow on 26-27 September.

Joe Angelo will be out of town for the IDC dates and Captain Bert Hubby and I will co-teach the course.  A few of the Florida Sea Base Scuba Instructors will be working on their PADI Instructor Development Course Staff Instructor certification during this course.  More information can be found on the Scuba Training page of this blog or by emailing or


Wave conditions have been much better than anticipate according to Captain Dennis Wyatt.  Captain Dennis reported mostly 2′ seas with occasional 3 footers.


The calmer than expected seas have been a blessing.  Everyone I have talked with says they are having a blast.  I have seen a LOT of sunburn.  It has been a little cloudy and that causes people to let their guard down.


A penny saved – – – is not much!
