Drive before you buy!

We will have Chris Mullins on hand to take you for a REBREATHER TEST DRIVE!  Dive the Hollis Prism 2 and/or the Hollis Explorer in the confines of the pool.  Try a rebreather for $75 and, of course, that will be taken off the price of the unit, if you decide to buy.  Meet here at the shop at 8:30AM, then head over to the pool for your silent diving experience.

Don't let cool weather fool you!

Keep up your diving year 'round with us

Just because the local weather does not cooperate with our diving plans, does not mean you have to abandon the Dive Life this winter.  If you are just getting into diving, we train all year.  We can finish any of your Open Water training on our winter trip(s) to Florida!  Take advantage of our special pricing for the trip/ training packages.

For those who use the cold months to expand their knowledge, ask about non diving specialties like Nitrox or Science of Diving.  We are also scheduling Technician Courses.  We offer Visual Inspection Procedures, Gas Blending, O2 Cleaning and more!  A good diver will always seek more knowledge.

That's right, just click "Login and Learn" and begin your training right now.  Once you click the link, you can choose the Scuba Diver Program online learning for FREE!  This is the first three chapters of the Open Water Diver Program.  Once you have completed the program (or at any time during your studies) contact us and schedule your Personal Open Water Orientation.  Then you will be ready to get the rest of the program and BECOME AN OPEN WATER DIVER!
