We are looking forward to a great season in 2018. Classes for most of the pools we teach in have been set up and are posted in the Training section.
Open water classes were on par with previous years and our upper level classes were up from last year. More divers are realizing the importance of the knowledge gained in taking advanced classes and specialties.
We will again be doing charters this summer so if interested contact the dive center and set up a time to go out diving on the Deep Diver. We will take out groups of two or more for a long 1/2 day of diving. Fees will include boat crew, a two tank dive, snacks and beverages between dives and transportation to and back from the dives.
We have switched to USIA for our dry suit line. Go to the equipment page and see what a great line this is. A dry suit can extend your dive season and some of our best visibility is early in the spring and in the fall when the lakes are still cool so the suit will extend your dive season and you will still be warm.
Underwater Spear fishing has become a big hit and we will again have some classes going this season. The class includes classroom, underwater targets set up for practice and a hunting dive.
Our on site High Adventurer climbing tower is available for groups to test their skills at rock climbing. The course covers from novice to advanced climbers. We will set up the course for a group of six or more. For youth groups one adult participates free for every six youth. We offer both rappelling and climbing training. Price is based on if doing one or both. Stop in or call us for more information. Boy Scout troops, church groups, and school groups are just some of the groups that have spent a day on the tower or you can get together a bunch of your friends and make your own group.
We are always looking for different lakes to dive, so if you have a favorite lake in the area tell us why it makes it your favorite dive site and if you have more than one tells us about those also.
We are always looking for ways to better serve divers in our area so we encourage you to to give us input. I feel the success of any business depends on how well a business and costumer relationship is.
Tri-State Diving is celebrating the start of our 30th season serving the lakes area. On May 26th from 9 am to 3 pm we will host our annual Super Spring Scuba Sale. All new our new merchandize will be marked down 20% for that day only. Prices will be also be marked down on used and consignment items. We will have door prizes and refreshments for those attending. So stop out and visit about diving and get in on some super buys.
As I have stated in past issues of Bottom Time the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is implementing new programs to prevent the spread of Aquatic Invasive Species in Minnesota waters. They will be doing spot inspections on boats being transported on Minnesota highways and any boater will be stopped if hauling a water craft down the road with a plug in. Our commercial and salvage crew have gone through a training course and testing through the Minnesota DNR to be able to work in Minnesota waters. As divers we also need to do our part to prevent the spread of Zebra Mussels. Once they get into a lake there is no way to get rid of them so that is why it is so important to prevent their introduction into any body of water. Last year Minnesota added more lakes to the list that are infested with Zebra Mussels. Here are some guidelines to follow for scuba gear.
