Weekend in the pool, teaching Scuba fundamentals

Weekend Scuba diving in Lake Travis

Teaching my kids to swim and be comfortable in the water has always been important. The next evolution is Scuba diving and the skills I hope will carry them a lifetime of enjoyment. My daughter turns 10 this year (2018) and she will have her Junior open water certification, with the goal of her first Ocean dive in Grand Cayman.

Many years ago I became Rescue diver and Nitrox certified, becoming a Divemaster in early 2018. As my kids get older, this journey is becoming more important to me, as it becomes important to them

Resuming (Completed) my Divemaster training

(Since writing this I have completed my Divemaster and currently Divemastering at Scubaland Adventures here in Austin)

Today marks the day I restart this journey, starting my Divemaster training. My motivation is a personal accomplishment and to see my name on my kid's certification card when they turn 10! :)

Life is a journey that has many twists and turns. I enjoy teaching, but also really enjoy learning, so becoming an Instructor will give me the best of both worlds. You never know, maybe some resort will want a super cool guy to come teach a few weeks every once in awhile!!
