Over spring break, eight SCUBAnauts partnered with six youth from Aruba’s ScubbleBubbles to collaborate on international coral restoration and lionfish removal efforts for the first time!

Nauts Earn Sea Turtle Specialty Certification

Just like divers, the turtles who need this procedure start with a lot of weight and then get less and less to only have what they need. We also got to see a bunch of four-day old turtles and learned that only one in ten thousand actually survive to reproductive age.

Our New Friend Jenny (The Tiger Shark)

Overall, today was one of my favorite days of diving ever. Getting to be in the presence of such beautiful animals is unlike anything else, and I hope to do it again soon. My favorite part of the day was the sharks were swimming right in front of us.

Lasers, Cameras and Drones, Oh My!

Lasers, Cameras and Drones, Oh My!

The photogrammetry trip was a great experience for those interested in engineering and computers with a mix of diving and data collection. The trip was very hands-on and we were active all day with diving, data collection, computer rendering, drone photography and review from morning until it was time for smores at the campfire.

Building Confidence Through Scuba Accident Lifesaving Management Course

After we completed classroom training, we jumped in the pool where we reviewed concepts learned in the SCUBA certification course such as clearing a mask, sharing air, and regulator recovery. We then proceeded to my favorite part of the course, which was scenarios. All the students took turns acting out the part of a “panicked diver” or “unconscious diver,” and the others applied the skills learned in classroom training to aid the diver and bring them safely to the “boat” or “shore.”
