We are looking forward to the two sport shows this spring. The Detroit Lakes show is March 24 th and 25 th at the Ice arena and the Big Boys Toys Expo is April 28 th at the Fargo Dome. I have had a few said that they would help but could use some more so let me know if you would like to spend some time in the pool helping people experience scuba
I am in the process of putting together the winter trips for the next two years. Here is some information on each and we will have more as time goes along.
We will again be traveling back to a dive resort that we traveled to in 2000. I enjoyed the trip there more than almost any other dive destination I have traveled to. The diving is untouched and the culture of this country is unique. We will land on the mainland and fly out to its largest island to enjoy five days of great diving. On our return to the mainland we will tour the old parts of the capital that date back to the fifteen hundreds. Dates will be sometime in January of 2013. I am still working on prices for the trip. Let us know if you want to learn more about this trip.
January of 2014 we are going to take a group diving at the Galapagos Islands , spending the week on the Galapagos Aggressor and a day on one of the islands.
Galapagos is one of the most exciting destinations in the world. Guests will have the opportunity to dive with playful Sea Lions, travel to the famous Darwin and Wolff, for thrilling diving to see Hammerhead Sharks, Whale Sharks, clouds of Tuna and much more. The scenic view of the Darwin Arch is as picturesque as you can imagine. The Galapagos Aggressor I & II are sister ships and depart from San Cristobal every Thursday afternoon. Diving begins Thursday afternoon through late afternoon Tuesday. Guests will depart the yachts Wednesday morning to board a bus for a land tour to the Highlands of Santa Cruz Island to see tortoises, lava tubes, pit craters and the Scalesia Forest . Guests will enjoy lunch in the town of Puerto Ayora at a local restaurant (the only meal not included in the cruise) and will have time for shopping. Guests can also visit Fausto Llerena, a tortoise breeding center and the Charles Darwin Research Station. Wednesday afternoon, guests will return to the yachts for a cocktail party and dinner. The yachts will then depart for San Cristobal for a Thursday am departure. Guests will wake up to a full made to order breakfast and check-out at 8:00 a.m. Transportation is provided to the airport. The National Parks Service has prohibited night diving in Galapagos due to extreme conditions on most sites. Beginner divers may find Galapagos diving challenging.
The Aggressor fleet has been doing dive trips for years all over the world and does an excellent job of making sure their clients have some great experiences and have good memories to cherish for the rest of their lives.
We are booking this trip starting this summer as it is such a great destination to travel to so we need to get the trip locked in. If you have interest in going on this trip please get in contact with us as I am sure the trip will fill fast. This also allows you time to start putting money aside for this trip of a lifetime.
Please call for more details.
Here is an ice dive video that is awesome to watch. It is called underwater fishing. They are upside down as you can watch bubbles fall and other objects rise. It is surprising how great the visibility is and how well they can control their balance.
Our Supper Spring Scuba Sale is coming up at the end of May so watch for more information on this great event.
