We have had cool air temperatures this last couple of weeks but that has helped clear up the visibility in our area lakes. Some of you need to get a hold of the dive center to finish up your open water dives. We do not have much summer left so let's get them done.
I was at the Dirty Jobs website yesterday and found an area where you can make comments on their different episodes. Here is the one for our episode and I hope that if you enjoyed the show that you make a comment as there have not been any made as of today. That might get it shown more often. www.tv.com/Dirty+Jobs/Ice+Salvage+Crew/episode/1195239/reviews.html?tag=container;episode_guide_list
We still have a number of pairs of Force Fins that are in our rental that we are selling at reduced prices. This will be the first time we have offered this great a special on Force Fins. We feel that now is the time to replace them with new Force Fins so we are passing them along at a great price.
July has been a good month with a lot of new divers coming into the shop. Comments we have been getting are: Tri-State Diving has some of the most reasonable prices on rental gear and the gear is of top quality. The service at the dive center is great.
Karl and I went down to Franklin Lake last Friday to recover a ring and on the way there we talked about how many people in the area are divers and how little diving is being done. We discussed ways to get divers active again and we are looking for recommendations from you on how the dive center can better serve you to get you out diving again. If you haven't been in the water for awhile and are nervous about it, remember that if you were trained by us you can come to any one of our class sessions and join in on the fun and the only cost is the pool fee the night which is usually 10 dollars or come along on one of our dives and we will help you get back into the water. We are looking at some new activities to make your dive experience more enjoyable.
We will be setting up the Spear Fishing class August 7 th at 7 PM at the dive center. Fees for the class will include the manual which is $25.00, 1 classroom session, 1 dive to practice on targets, and one dive to hunt in one of the area lakes (spear guns will be available to use for the class). Cost for class will be $85.00. Call or email to get signed up for the class. We have a limited number of slots.
We will be putting a trip together to go to Cozumel at the end of January. Price should be around $1500.00 for the eight days which includes just about everything you will need for the trip. If interested please get in touch with us so we can get you on the list. As always flight prices will be based on the price the day you sign up to go.
