INTOVA 1.jpg

So everyone you know has a GoPro right? But you're a diver. So if you're looking to join the legions, you have to get special adapters, filters, lights, and more to make it work. But for less than $300, you can get the Intova Sport HD II video & photo package with a mini flex arm, pistol grip, torch adapter, and a wide-angle zoom video light! You might be thinking "I can get the silver package Hero3 for the same price though," right? Sure. But the Intova is waterproof to 60m vs. the GoPro's 40m, and can capture stills at 12, 8, 5, and 3 megapixels vs. the GoPro's 10 mp capacity. If that's not enough, why pay $299 for a companies "mid level" camera when you can pay the same for a better quality device PLUS the package? Come by the shop, pick up yours today!


So now you’re certified...

What’s Next!? 

Don’t be alarmed, we’re not overly excited about your question, but here at Virginia Scuba, we’ve developed a unique program that surpasses the typical response of taking the Advanced Open Water course or trying out a speciality. With “What’s Next!?”  You will complete 5 training dives and receive certifications in three specialities we feel every diver needs, regardless of which direction diving takes you. But what if you’ve finished part one? Check out the second part of the program “What’s Next Deep!?”  If you’re interested in obtaining your deep diver specialty and one additional certification, this is the program for you! Plus, after completing both parts you will receive your advanced open water certification on top of 5 specialties!

If you’re interested a speciality that you can’t complete in the area or if you’ve finished both parts of “What’s Next!?” and your ready to put those skills to work, why don’t you take a trip with us? Check out our travel page for more info!
