The scuba aficionados at My Scuba Adventures immerse their guests in the art of deep-sea exploration, whether by hawking gear at their dive shop or by teaching technique during in-depth certification courses. Lessons cover everything from snorkeling and swimming to wreck diving and underwater navigation. Each course can be completed at the student's pace to fit busy schedules and allow ample time for gills to grow in. Along with a heated pool, the facility serves divers' needs with rental and for-sale gear, repairs, and organized trips to far-off dive locales such as Cozumel and Cuba.
Not long after she learned to walk, Jen Babb was learning how to swing a tennis racket. This early introduction made a profound impact, and she eventually got a USPTA certification to share her passion for the sport with others. Today, she teaches both kids and adults during private and group lessons, which she separates by age group to foster camaraderie and fair competition. Up to 10 students fill each class, so students get individual attention without having to balance rackets on their chins. Jen specializes in teaching the foundational aspects of tennis, making her a good coach for beginning and intermediate players.
