There's nothing better to carry scuba diving gear in than a good basket...



Baskets... nothing like a good basket to carry your scuba diving equipment around... UNLESS... that's right, it's full of something better...

Baskets... nothing like a good basket to carry your scuba diving equipment around... UNLESS... that's right, it's full of kittens instead! Kittens and scuba are a pretty close race to me.

BBB Warns of Arlington Scuba Certification Program | Arlington Scuba Ins...



https://youtu.be/Osf142FAQRE

I understand that scuba is an equipment intensive sport and it has some upfront expenses. However, anyone that has been in business for a while should not be charging $399 for full certification especially from a brick an mortar location. Think about all the overhead, the equipment, rentals, liability, wages, insurance, etc. No one goes into the business of scuba to pay someone to learn how to dive. If he were just starting out, new business can benefit from welcome pricing. As far as Groupon, Living Social, Yelp, and other like it... they are a great way to advertise, but I've heard that some have lost money on those deals. You have to be a smart consumer. 180 people got ripped off? That guy does NOT look like Bernie Madoff.

Arlington Scuba Instructor Loses Certification
http://www.news4jax.com/consumer/bbb-warns-of-arlington-scuba-certificate-program_

"It amazes me that something so inherently dangerous like breathing underwater attracts people that want to pay as little as possible. Don't get me wrong, I love a good deal. But, I want the best doctor, the best auto mechanic, the best teachers, and the best scuba diving instructor."

Scuba is relatively safe nowadays. However, sometimes new divers don't make good decisions. Finding a scuba mentor helps one learn from small mistakes. Don't become an accident statistic waiting to happen. Know what you are paying for!

We've all heard sayings regarding being a cautious consumer but some just never learn. Likewise, everyone thinks the have the best investment strategy. One thing is clear, money comes and goes. Sometimes, it goes faster than it should. When you're reading or listening through all of these, please remember to invest wisely!

Here is a long list of smart things you might need to hear... If you've heard them before, why are you still reading...?

NAUI Dive Tables: Questions 54 - 63

https://youtu.be/9fApNuJKTu8

Once upon a time, everybody learned how to use dives tables in their introductory scuba course.... knowing how to use dive tables helps to understand decompression theory a little better. Even if you dive with a computer, this skill is invaluable. All Nitrox courses still teach tables which are necessary for completing the course. If you ever plan to go further into your dive career, you'll have to know them. If you plan to do technical diving, you must know them!
I teach dive tables in my Open Water Scuba Diver Program. These are questions, #54 - #63

NAUI Dive Tables: Introduction and Question #53 can be found here: https://youtu.be/DQZS3JEXL-o
