Scuba Diving Certification
Lake Wazee this weekend
We are at Lake Wazee for the final Specialty Weekend of the dive season.
You are welcome to come up and do some fun diving with a buddy. Stay with the group at the campground too!
Just let us know that you are coming up by sending an email by clicking on this Devil’s Lake South Shore, on Sep 27 led by JoAnn. This time of year the dives get dark near the end of the dive and packing up. Bring a shore light (more than just your phone) and a dive light is a great idea. We have a selection of dive lights at the shop for purchase. Sorry we don’t rent them.
Dive briefing at 6pm. Please read the dive site procedures HERE for this dive.
Classes and lessons this week
While the local dive season is coming to a close, the dive and snorkel travel season is getting into full swing. Get your old gear replaced with some new gear. Get your gear serviced prior to getting on the plane. Get that Scuba Skills Update before you arrive at your wonderful vacation only to be assigned to the remedial boat.
Open Water Certification class starts on October 5, 6 or 8 but you can start working through the Digital Home Study now. Simply call or stop into the shop to pay for the course and get your registration credentials.
This time of year you start with digital online academic learning, then two classroom workshop sessions and two pool sessions right here. You then have the option for a referral to a warm water vacation destination or wait until next spring for training dives here. The next Pool sessions are October 8 and 9.

New Class Opportunities
Can’t make a regularly scheduled class time for Scuba Skills Update, Snorkeling or even Open Water Diver? Choose a private session with an instructor. We are able to accommodate your time availability with some private sessions either at the shop or in the pool. With a little schedule comparison, we can get you into the pool or the classroom in the evening, daytime or weekends. There is a small fee for this private service but if that makes you able to complete your course, it’s well worth it. Click here to email Brian today to schedule your sessions.
Planning that warm water dive destination trip, we should also think about getting the rust off of our diving skills BEFORE you go on that trip. Every dive agency, therefore almost every dive destination, has a refresher or Scuba Skills Update requirement if you haven’t had a dive (and can prove it with a log book!) within the last 6 months. Don’t spend your first day on the remedial boat demonstrating the things you know already, get a Scuba Skills Update with MadisonScuba in the pool. It will cost you half the price and you get your entire first day of diving back on your vacation.
We have new snorkeling gear at the shop! And we’ll teach you how to use it! New from Aqualung – Aqua Glide fins. Snorkeling class every time we are in the pool. Read more here …
