Another great weekend down in San Diego with Waterhorse Charters running Deep and Wreck courses. Congrats to our six divers on their new certifications – Darin, Reed, Brad, Lauren, Valeri, and Natasha!
Wow! Sorry for the lack of posts for a while, but March was a busy month for us at the shop! Many new Divers, more ConEd certs, and an Instructor Course and Evaluation kept us hopping. Congrats to all of our Divers and Pros on their new certifications and ratings!
Congrats to Shawn and John on completing their Open Water Certifications on the Spectre Dive Boat this past weekend! And extra congrats to John, who becomes the third generation in his family certified by Channel Islands Scuba! His granddaughter, Aspen, and daughter, Kendra, joined him for his final dive.
As many of our Divers know, there are plenty of great diving opportunities right along our coast. But, the closer you are to shore, the lower visibility can be, and nobody likes long surface swims. So, what’s the answer to expanding your diving locations? A kayak! Get to places you can’t easily reach from shore, and places the dive boat don’t go, by setting up a kayak for Scuba Diving. Here, we demonstrate water entry and exit off of a kayak. Stay tuned for more kayak diving fun from Channel Islands Scuba!
We had a busy Sunday on the Spectre Dive Boat on Sunday, Feb 7, 2021! Two new Open Water Divers – Kaitlyn and Sophia, Kendra completed her Deep Diving certification and earned her Advanced Open Water rating in the process, and Matt completed his Horizon Semi-Closed Rebreather certification! Congrats to all!
For all of our Divers using the ScubaPro Heads Up Display (HUD) Dive Computer, a new software update (version 1.30) was announced today. You can download the update with instructions on the update process at ScubaPro’s website.
