We are headed to Bonaire in one month which we are very excited about! Then shortly after Shaun heads to Fiji. We have announce a few new trips so make sure you check them out below.
We have some new items coming through the shop yet again. We now carry a selection of O’Neill Rash Guards and Suits as well as the new Olympus TG5 Camera and Housing. We are excited to bring in new products come spring time, computers, free diving gear and new accessories.
Some people have been able to get in the water on the warmer days. The wind has been pretty rough along with the single digit temps but know that you can still dive! How cool would it be to do a dive in every month of the year! This weekend is looking nice, so plan your dive today!
We look forward to a new year filled with tons of diving both locally and in warmer waters.
See you soon!
