Drysuit Diver Course - Aug 25th - 5:30pm
Wanna stay warm and toasty on a dive? Then dive dry. Yes! Unlike a wetsuit, a dry suit seals you off from the outside water and that keeps you warm! Even in surprisingly cold water.
The Fun Part
Dry suits let you dive more challenging dive sites, and extend your dive season. When you have the right cold water scuba diving attire, you can stand up to the elements and take advantage of the generally better visibility offered by winter months—especially at inland dive sites such as quarries, lakes, sinkholes and caves etc. As a dry suit diver, you’re equipped to scuba dive some of the world’s incredible dive sites in the world’s cooler regions that are best enjoyed in a dry suit even in their warmer months.
What You Learn
Gain the knowledge and skills to safely don, dive with, doff and store a dry-suit. Get introduced to the different types of suits so you can make a very informed decision if considering purchasing a dry suit. You learn:
Dry suit buoyancy control skills
Dry suit maintenance, storage and basic repair
Undergarment (fleece or overall-type garments worn under the dry suit) options
Haigh Quarry Aug. 28th

Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Get Out of the Water!
Air Swimmers swim through the air with incredibly smooth and life-like motion. These amazing fish provide hours of remote control indoor fun in even the smallest of rooms (not for outdoor use). They require only four AAA batteries (one in the body, three in the controller) and have complete up, down and 360 degree turning control.
Simply fill your Air Swimmers with helium inexpensively at any party store, florist shop, or grocery store that carries balloons. The body is made from a high quality, durable nylon material that will stay inflated for weeks! You can fill it again and again. Remote control has never come to life so magically! Supplies are limited and expected to sell out fast!

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.
