The tropical Atlantic remains quiet.  However, we are approaching the heart of hurricane season.  If you have a Florida Sea Base adventure scheduled during August, I (again) urge you to consider trip insurance.  The Weather Channel has a good article explaining why.  Click on the link to get the full details.  Here is a graphic from that post.



The local weather remains seasonal.  There is a chance of rain around the 12th/13th of August but that is too far out to be highly reliable.  Scattered rain and thunderstorms are common this time of year as the water and air temperatures begin to peak.  However, the storms are usually short lived (a half hour or so).  In the words of the infamous Captain Ron, “They come on you fast and leave you fast”.


Applications are starting to flow in to the Florida Sea Base for the 2015 Divemaster Academy.  A new informational flyer and application have been added to the Scuba Training page on this site.  The class is limited to 16 candidates and a significant amount of prep time is needed in advance to complete the online training segments and to prepare for the timed aquatics skills and to hone your “demonstration quality” scuba skills.

I’ll be back in a week or so, posting from the Florida Sea Base.
