Discover your inner Hero
“Challenging” and “rewarding” best describe the Rescue Diver course. Building upon what you’ve already learned, this course expands on what you already know about how to prevent problems, and how to manage them if they occur.
The Fun Part
The fun part about this course is rising to challenges and mastering them. Most divers find this course both demanding and rewarding, and at the end, say it’s the best course they’ve ever taken.
What You Learn
Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
Emergency management and equipment
Rescuing panicked divers
Rescuing unresponsive divers
We will have an informational meeting on Sunday Apr. 17th at 4pm for anyone interested in the Rescue Diver Course. At this meeting we will cover the requirements and training schedule.

Bonaire 2012 Eat-Sleep-(Buddy) Dive
We are returning to the shore dive capital of the world - Bonaire.
You couldn't design a better island for diving than Bonaire. The entire island is ringed by a dense fringing reef that, on the leeward side, starts in just 30 feet of water. About 35 yards offshore, the reef drops off into the deep blue, punctuated by occasional mini-walls. In all, there are more than 60recognized dive sites and, because the reef is so close to shore, you can explore the majority of them without ever boarding a dive boat. Just pick a spot, gear up and wade in.
