First, let us say thank you to all our friends who chose us for their diving needs this year. All our customers and students are greatly appreciated. We always welcome you to be a part of the dive life.
Second, we regret to inform you that for the first time in three years, we will have to increase our price for training. Our costs for training materials, open water entrance fees, etc have raised every year; and, we have fought to not raise our prices. Now, we will have to do so. Although we have no control of eLearning prices, PADI will also increase their price. Please make note that any increases will go into effect as of January 1, 2015.
The good news is that you still have time to go ahead and get any training you are planning set and paid for prior to the increase. If you have a loved one you were going to get lessons for, go ahead and get it for Christmas before the increase!
Lastly, we want to announce that come January 2015, we will have finalized a new partnership in our dive travel. We are working on partnering with local dive shops and a larger travel agency to be able to offer you more options for group and individual travel. Please stay up to date via our web page and Facebook page (Virginia Scuba, not VA Scuba). We will formally announce these partnerships and how it affects you as soon as all is set.
As always, you are invited to stop by the shop just to get away from the NOVA hustle and bustle. We do our best to get you somewhere tropical, even it is all in our heads! Thank you again for choosing Virginia Scuba for Safe. Professional. Fun.
