We made it through February in New England pretty easy this year! We had some nice warm days where divers could go out and really enjoy their dives. The water is remaining pretty warm with an average of 38 to 41 degrees so don’t miss a dive if you think it’s too cold. As a reminder we head to Bonaire from March 5th-12th and we will be closing the store for that week. We are excited to feel that spring is on its way. We have been planning out our summer schedule with fun activities for you. We have a lot of new products coming into the store which you can read about below. We have also announced a new trip to Dominica in the fall. It’s time to start dusting off that gear and getting it ready!

Rare Pacific Seahorse discovered in California waters
Evelyn was the first woman to dive the Andrea Doria, one of the first women to use mix gases, and also the first to start a custom wetsuit company where one could not be found commercially. Her story has graced the pages of Skin Diver, Newsweek, National Geographic, Franklin Mint Magazine, and Harper’s Bazaar to name a few. She appears in the DEMA/Jack McKenney video Scuba Dive America. Evelyn was inducted into the Women Divers Hall of Fame in 2000, and is still diving wrecks and caves to this day!
The Danversport Marina will now be hosting a monthly “Boating & Ocean Show” where there will be booths with local vendors, clubs, etc. The event is open to the public at no charge. There will be light refreshments and free parking. This is a great way to keep active in the boat/ocean lover/diving community. We are excited to have a booth at this new event!

Join us in Dominica November 5th – 12th, 2016. We will be staying at a small resort called Castle Comfort. Not only is this destination EXCELLENT for diving, offering diverse marine life and underwater terrain but the island has so much more to offer such as numerous hikes to waterfalls and gorges, whale watching, zip lining and more!
For over 25 years Undersea Divers has been running trips to this “Diver’s Paradise” and divers have been coming back year after year. If you’ve never been to Bonaire, don’t miss out on this opportunity to experience pure diving freedom. Bonaire’s pristine reefs and diverse marine life are unique to the Caribbean. Because the waters around Bonaire are designated as an official marine park, diving Bonaire is like diving the Caribbean the way it used to be – untouched and unspoiled. We head back there December 3rd -10th, 2016.
