  Thanks to all that participated in our annual underwater cleanup.   We pulled out some pretty interesting items this year from some dolly carts to a Timex that took a licking but didn't keep ticking. 


"Mentoring tomorrow's leaders"


     Volunteers are needed for a new program starting in Kenosha Unified Schools.   Diver Dan's is working with S.T.A.R.S International and Kenosha Unified Schools to bring this unique program to Kenosha.  The S.T.A.R.S International (Scuba Training At-Risk Students) program was modeled after two years of field-tested pilot programs in the greater Chicago, Illinois area in 2005 and 2006. S.T.A.R.S International is focused solely on at-risk youth (ages 13-17) with the goal to provide a positive diversionary activity incorporating scuba diving which reinforces and supports local academic achievement and career development.  Candidates must be predetermined to exude traits qualifying them as “at-risk” teens and be nominated by local or civic authority figure.

     S.T.A.R.S International encompasses an eighteen month curriculum spanning two

academic years. The first 12 months of the program target development of the candidate’s diving skills and interests, whereas the subsequent 6 months leverage participant’s confidence and leadership skills to assist development of new candidates.

     Volunteer mentors are needed to get the program going.   If you are interested in helping in any way, please contact Brian at 262-652-9399 or stop in.   We would like to schedule a meeting of interested volunteers soon.

SCCLogo 2We are returning to Cozumel...


 This is one of our favorite trips.  Cozumel is located 12 miles off the northeast coast of the Yucatan Peninsula.   The reefs of Cozumel are part of one of the largest barrier reefs in the world.   Visibility is usually the best that can be found in the Caribbean, averaging 150ft year round.   Scuba Club Cozumel is located on the waterfront, one mile south of downtown.  This is an attractive multi-level building of Spanish-Colonial architecture.   Designed and built by divers, for divers, to provide all services in one convenient place.  It boasts a freshwater swimming pool, restaurant-bar, and in-house dive center. scc Shore dives and snorkeling from the resort is spectacular.

cocoRoatan Honduras...


Roatan is the largest of the Bay Islands of Honduras. 

Coco View is on the protected south shore.  Coral reefs are in shallow water, and calmer seas.  Their commitment to designing the ultimate dive operation has put them among the top-rated dive resorts in the Caribbean.  An incredible array of marine life is only a few fin kicks from the clubhouse along the renowned CoCo View Wall, Newman's Wall, and at the easily accessible wreck of the Prince Albert.   CoCo View is a haven for snorkellers!Cocoview002PS
