2019 draws to a close and we look back on what a year it has been and look forward to even more in 2020
The big news of 2019 for Atlantis was the addition of Scuba Pro to our already top quality line of products. Early in January the new product started rolling in. Combine that with our already Strong Aqualung line of products and we have everything you need.
2019 saw a record number of Open Water Students. We certified more PADi Open Water Divers then ever before. It was so nice to welcome so many new faces to the exciting underwater world.
So, all of you that got certified in 2019 for Open Water, 2020 is your year to continue on and do Advanced Open Water, Rescue and beyond.
Atlantis became a PADI IDC training center in 2019. This means that we can now teach instructors in the world of diving. This is a prestigious level with PADi and we are so proud to be listed as the closest IDC center to Dutch Springs. What better way to do it, with such a dive location less then 10 minutes from us.
We saw a couple new instructors born this year.
John Trout - "Trout" to all of you, worked his way up through Atlantis. We trained him as a DiveMaster, working as such for about 4 years before moving on to become an Open Water Scuba Instructor, Now MSDT Instructor (Master Scuba Diver Trainer). He was teaching almost every weekend this summer and will have a busy 2020.
Karl Von Lang also became an Open Water Scuba Instructor in the Fall of 2019 here at Atlantis. Karl had been working as an Assistant Instructor here at Atlantis for many years before decided to take the leap to Instructor. May of you have seen him in classes or maybe you did a refresher or ReActivate with him in the past few years. Look for him doing some of the Open Water courses this summer.
More Trips were added to the schedule in 2019, adding a summer blue water trip. So for those of you that need/want something in the summertime, we have you covered. Curacao June 2020.
It was a busy year here at Atlantis and we look forward to another busy season in 2020.
Happy New Year
