The new year is starting well and with a great deal of promise. We here at Virginia Scuba have a lot of new ideas and plans in the works to better serve you.
First off, 2014 saw the addition of several new divemasters to our staff and more to conclude their training this year. This allows us a fresh set of ideas in our never ending drive to provide the best dive training in the business. There are also a few divers who plan to take the next step to become instructors this year. As always, our new staff is trained and held to the high standards that you have grown to expect from Virginia Scuba.
We are also partnering up with other dive shops to expand our dive travel options. Our new partnerships will give us more opportunities to serve you with group AND your individual travel needs. As the process progresses, we will be adding travel options to our website and Facebook. We anticipate not only expanding our exotic travel, but adding "local" trips to the coast of Florida and the shipwrecks of St. Lawrence River to go along with our Florida Springs trips. Make sure to check back with us frequently to make sure you get in on some of these!
After many requests, we are going to bring back our free seminar program. These are one to two hour seminars that fill in the informational gaps that tend to not be (or lightly) covered in normal training. Topics will include things such as packing for travel, setting up save-a-dive kits, more in depth gear care, etc. Once again, keep an eye on the website and Facebook so you don't miss these events.
Lastly, we strive to share our passion for diving with you in the safest, friendliest manner possible. This includes not only the best possible training, but also to provide a place to make new friends and get the most out of your dive adventure. We believe that diving is more than the time we get to spend underwater. It includes social gatherings with other divers to share ideas, pictures, and epic tales of great diving. With that in mind, we plan to host more events like our Customer Appreciation Day and Chili Feed that we held last year. We have joined with Virginia Dive Club- NOVA to provide more events for everyone to enjoy.
Thank you so much for choosing Virginia Scuba as you local dive shop. Every time you visit is special to us. As long as you continue honor us with your business, we will continue to provide you with a safe, professional, fun experience. We look forward to seeing you this year!
