25. Our First Interview, Emergency Oxygen – are you prepared, and Your Next Dive travels to the Bahamas to dive with Stuart Cove

In this episode we have our first interview with Ron, discuss the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course, and Your Next Dives takes us to Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas  in Nassau.

From the very first day I started Scuba Shack Radio, Ron Weller – one of our dive instructors has been talking about getting guests on the show. For this 25th episode, I thought it was appropriate that Ron be my first guest. Ron talks about how he started diving, what keeps him motivated and describes a couple of his most memorable dive.

Are you prepared to act if someone needs emergency oxygen? As we are taught from the beginning in scuba diving, oxygen is a primary treatment for both decompression illness and near-drowning. While scuba diving has an outstanding safety record, sometimes things go wrong. You can be the person to help by knowing how to administer emergency oxygen. PADI offers the Emergency Oxygen Provider course for everyone. You don’t need to be a certified diver to gain this valuable specialty. Be the one who can come to the aid of someone in need.

Stuart Cove Dive Bahamas is located on the southwest side of New Providence Island in the Bahamas. You can stay at any number of affiliated hotels and take the Stuart Cove shuttle to the dive shop. We normally stay at the Orange Hill Beach Inn. Stuart Coves locations is built like a seaport fishing village and was once used as a movie set for the film “Flipper”. They have full facilities including a retail store, photo center, classroom, rental shop, gear lockers and showers. The 46 foot Newton dive boats are spacious and well maintained. They also have several other boats. You can dive wrecks, reefs, walls and experience sharks. Our trip with Stuart Cove has been running for over 15 years now.
