April Newsletter 2018

Hello Divers!
We hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. We are excited we made it another month and that we are closer to warmer weather and water temps! We had a lot of fun in March. We had a great turn out at the Boston Sea Rovers show. A big thank you to everyone who came out and visited us at our booth! The support was awesome. Whitney and 20 divers and snorkelers had a great trip to Bonaire. The weather was wonderful, the vis was clear and the marine life was out! We had a pod of dolphins show up as we were heading to one of our favorite dive sites up north, Tolo. We were thrilled because there were many juvenile dolphins in the pod which made it extra special. We had some photographers on the trip and 2 of them will be showing their images and videos at this month’s Photo Society Meeting which is held on April 26th. All are welcome to come see! Shaun and his crew of divers will be arriving back home late this evening from Fiji! We are excited to get their dive recaps and see all of the photos! Looking ahead we have a few save the dates, one for the Women’s Dive Day and one for our Spring Sale! Details are below for both. We have a few new items in the store now including new rash guards and free dive equipment. We will be getting more new items in this season which we are very excited about. We are planning out our summer schedule of classes and events and this year already seems full of fun stuff! It’s a great time of year to dust off that gear and get it serviced for the main dive season so you will be ready to hit the water when the temps warm.
We hope to see you all soon!
Whitney, Shaun, Larry

Marine Life Mobil App Launches

Everyone loves The Marine Life of the North Atlantic Guide Book by Andrew Martinez. Our personal copies are worn thin from coming back from a dive trying to find the name of a certain creature we just saw. It is one of the best marine life sources out there. We are thrilled to announce that Andrew Martinez has created a Mobile App of the book! This app is available for download on ios and soon on your droid device!

With this app you can:

Record and Share Dives
Look up a wide range of marine life with photos, scientific names, etc
Get Notified when someone sees an animal you hope to see
Keep lists of certain marine life you are trying to find/have seen

Andrew will be doing a presentation of this new App at our shop on May 16th at 7:00pm for all of those who are interested!

DIVE TRAVEL with UNDERSEA DIVERS

Bonaire
November 3rd – 10th, 2018

We are headed back to our favorite island November 3rd – 10th, 2018. For over 30 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.

Little Cayman: Spots are filling extremely fast!
December 1st – 10th, 2018

Join group leader Shaun Maguire on our trip to Little Cayman December 1st -8th, 2018. From Phillipe Cousteau to David Doubliet, just about every diver who has experienced its reefs has stated that Little Cayman is one of the world’s premier dive destinations – with pristine reefs, excellent visibility and incredible diving. The 80° F water is second to none when it comes to clarity and it is said that more underwater photographs are taken in the Cayman Islands than in all other Caribbean destinations. The Caymans’ trademark turtles are a common sight and eagle rays, angelfish, reef sharks and grouper count among the 500 species of fish that have been documented here.

Maldives Liveaboard
(Male ROOMMATE WANTED)

January 17th -26th, 2019

The Maldives is one of the top all around dive destinations on the planet. Drift over the channels, linger over the pinnacles or the drop-offs. Or the valleys of soft corals and gardens of hard corals crowded with fish, nearly always tame. Tropicals to pelagics. Snappers, morays, mantas, turtles, sharks and whalesharks.
