With the dive season coming up shortly, get your gear into the shop for it’s annual inspections. Even if you missed going someplace warm to dive this winter, getting your gear inspected before the summer dive season is critical. Are the dive police going to issue you a citation? No, but you want to make sure that your gear will function as it should when you need it! Rusty and Mac are ready to make sure your gear is prepared for the season.
