The Dive Season is here!
Summer is almost gone but we are still in the water! The surface water is warm and even the thermocline, while moving up and down, is warming. The viz is typical August but without storms and low heat, should be clearing up. We have had several successful wreck trips on Lake Michigan this summer. Look for some new excursions to Pearl Lake and maybe Haigh Quarry in the next month. Plans are to have more Lake Michigan dives next summer along with perhaps a weekend to Lake Superior. Let us know if you are interested in those.
Start working toward your free Advanced Open Water Diver card with Specialties such as Deep Diver, Navigation, Night and Limited Visibility and more. How does this all work? Click here for more information on the free Advanced Open Water Diver Card.
Get your gear checked out!
With the dive season in full swing, 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.
