APRIL 11, 2015 7:00AM


Meet us at the shop at 7:00 AM to get the first dive of season under your belt!  We will meet up, GET QUARRY PASSES, and head over to Millbrook for opening weekend.  Don't miss the chance to spend time with friends or even make some new ones.  After diving, we will go back to the shop, rinse gear and start the grill.  After the dives, we will be grilling hamburgers and hot dogs.  We'll provide burgers, dogs, and chips, anything else is up to you.  If anyone has a photography bug, we can put the pictures up on the 50" TV and laugh at each other!!  Can't wait to see you on the 11th.



So now you’re certified...

What’s Next!? 

Don’t be alarmed, we’re not overly excited about your question. 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 specialty. With “What’s Next!?”,  you will complete 5 training dives and receive certifications in three specialties 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 specialty 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!
