Jay has taken a different path for the past few years and his scuba charters are no longer available. However, in 2012, Jay purchased the Wenonah which was previously used to transport people from Grand Portage, MN to Isle Royale, MI. He now offers day cruises on the North Shore of Lake Superior and is docked at the Silver Bay, MN Marina.

Closing Report

Once again the class was a success.  All openning were filled.  The class was very organized and structured to include all the requirements of an Emergency First Responder.  It also met the stringent requirements of the GLSPS and the type of research diving we perform on our projects in the remote areas we visit.. 

A special thank you to Scott and Tracy Weymss from Air Down There Scuba for teaching the custom designed class for us. 

We learned a  lot more about life saving and how to react in a real emergency. sitsuation.

Thank you to all that attended.  It's nice to know that there are more of us out there to save us in a real emergency!

A great learning experience and great time was had by all.
