December Newsletter


Hello Divers!
We hope you had a happy and fun Thanksgiving! Last month kicked off our first warm water trip of the fall to an island in the SouthEast Caribbean, Dominica. The island is beautiful with lush green rainforests, waterfalls and rivers. We explored the Titou Gorge and Trafalger falls in the afternoons after diving. The waters were a warm 84 to 86 degrees. We saw the typical Caribbean marine life like banded coral shrimp,a ridiculous amount of  porcupine fish, spotted morays, turtles and giant sponges. We are planning on heading back to Dominica next fall so stay tuned for trip details.
This month we head back to one of our favorite islands, Bonaire. We are looking forward to the great meals, diving, warm waters and of course great company. If you haven’t booked a warm water dive vacation recently, we will be announcing our 2017 and 2018 line up of trips shortly.
For the month of December we have some great specials going on so make sure to check those out below. These specials will run through the month of December (but remember we close down from 12-24 through 1-1) so don’t miss out.
As most of you know, DEMA (Biggest Scuba TradeShow) was last month. This is the time of year when new products are released. We are excited to let you know we have picked up some new items (some in stock now, some hit the shelves in a month or two) such as BCDs, Masks, Knives, Wetsuits, Computers and Drysuits. We are always looking for the next best item to help you enhance your scuba diving lifestyle.
We hope everyone has a great holiday season!

New Pool Facility 

As many of you may know, the pool we were using, the Paul Lydon Aquatic Center, suffered bad roof damage from a wind and rain storm at the end of October.

We teach the PADI Open Water Diver course at the college so we are very familiar with the people and the facility. We are excited to start teaching our classes there on December 10th and know you will enjoy this pool!

Stocking Stuff Ideas for the Diver In Your Life


We have made a list of the top stocking stuffers. Head over to our blog to read the full list. 

New Gear! Introducing the Aqualung Soul & Pearl



Aqualung has introduced the Soul which is the same as the Soul i3 BCD they currently make but without the i3 inflator hose. This BCD is incredibly comfortable, taking all of the weight off of your shoulders and onto your hips. This BCD also holds the tank much tighter to your body for added comfort and maneuverability. The Soul is the woman’s version of the Axiom which is one of our best selling BCDs. We have these in stock so come on by to try one on! Learn More Here. 


Aqualung’s Woman’s Pearl BCD has had a face-lift. They have taken away the sports bra feature. It is a wrap-around jacket style BC specifically designed for the female diver. It offers an adjustable waistband and specially curved shoulder straps that provide a customization and comfortable fit. Learn More Here. 


Scuba Confidential: An Insiders Guide to Becoming a Better Diver



A customer of ours discovered this great book and we wanted to share it with all of you. We have recommended this book to many people and everyone loved it and said how helpful it really was.

Scuba Confidential is a unique book packed full of valuable tips and expert advice, giving you unprecedented access to the secrets of dive professionals and technical divers. With Scuba Confidential, you will learn how to master skills and techniques that will make you a more confident, capable and safe diver.

Scuba Confidential also gives you valuable insights on a vast range of topics such as what it is like to do a cave diving course, how to make sure you buy the right equipment, what to consider when choosing an instructor, things even the pros get wrong and where to find the best diving in the world.

This is candid, no-nonsense practical advice from a professional who has been involved over the last three decades with virtually every aspect of the sport.

Have you ever wondered?

Scuba Skill: Finning Techniques
