Our editor has been kicking ass this year, and we have some upcoming underwater work scheduled this winter, so we decided to send “The Rabbit” off to scuba school.

The local dive center that we love is called North Atlantic Scuba, and they are located in Marshfield, Ma. We have been very happy with the professional level of service at North Atlantic, as well as very pleased with the quality of their instructors.

North Atlantic Scuba teaches from the SSI curriculum, which is a very good program. The first step is called the Open Water Diver course which consisted of class time, 2 pool sessions, and 2 open water dives.

Basically, Rabbit wound up getting a private class because two of the students blew off the open water dives, and a third washed out because he had trouble clearing his ears.

All in all, we had a fantastic time. Our last dive was done in Newport, RI at Kings Beach.

Next step… the SSI Stress and Rescue class which Richard and I will be taking next week. Special thanks Master Diver Steve and Bob for their help putting Rabbit under water!
