FiveStar_Dive_Ctr_webBREAKING NEWS!!!.....

    Diver Dan's Scuba & Aquatic Center announces that we have just been awarded the upgrade to a "Five Star Dive Center" for SDI, TDI, and ERDI.   We are very excited to add this new array of course offerings.    
     Both students and instructors have embraced the no nonsense approach that the SDI training system offers. SDI has streamlined the course materials to let students study the essential academics with an emphasis on practical diving skills learned in both the pool and open water environments. SDI is the only agency to require students to be taught with modern dive computers from the onset of training.

splash 3International Beach Cleanup Day - Sep 25th
 

      Diver Dan's needs your help to target underwater

and shoreline debris in Kenosha. Project AWARE

Foundation, coordinates underwater clean up events and

urges divers and volunteers to jump in their wetsuits,

pull on their gloves and make a splash for trash! 

 

     Divers are the guardians of our underwater environments – they often see first hand the effects of marine debris on

our delicate ecosystem.  This event is the largest single

day volunteer event on behalf of our underwater environment.

 

    If you’re interested in participating, drop by our store or

give us a call: 262-652-9399.  And you don’t have to

be a diver to get involved. Bring your friends and family

 along and help make cleanwaters a reality.”M0013863



"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.
