Check out our trips for 2015 and our Turks Explorer II for 2016.  We are so excited about these trips and the prices are phenomenal.  We strive to provide you the best quality trips at the best prices, this year is no different. 

 

The trips are filling up fast, we had a tremendous sign-up at the travel party, so don't wait to long to reserve your spot!

 

 

 

 

Rescue Practice

 

 

 

Every year we offer our divers the opportunity to practice or refresh their rescue diver skills under the direct supervision of our instruction staff.  Our staff uses this opportunity to keep their skills fresh, we hope beyond hope that we don't have to use our skills and we look at this pool session as a way to keep those skills sharp in the event we ever do.

 

Come join us and practice the lifesaving skills you were taught in your PADI Rescue Diver course.

Equipment Specialist

 

 

 

Saturday March 7th at 10:00am

 

 

 

A chill is in the air and that means it's time for our "cold weather" classes to start.

 

Equipment Specialist is for those people who are a little more than leery of their own gear.  Are those bubbles bad or good, does that noise mean there is a problem, is that rip in my wetsuit the end of the line for my favorite suit?  

 

We will answer these and many more questions you might have about the gear you use each time you dive.  Hands on experiences will help clarify and clear up questions you might have on deck.

 

There is no pre-requisite for this class and you will receive a c-card upon completion.  Also this PADI specialty counts toward your Master Scuba Diver rating.

 

Give us a call to secure your spot!

 

 

 

 

 

UW Communications Certification Course

 

 

 

Saturday March 14    9:00am

 

 

We have gotten a lot of questions about this class. This is a distinct specialty taught only at Blue Meridian.  Completing this course will allow you to gain a PADI Specialty rating for UW Safety Communications Diver.

 

Who will it benefit? Those who have trouble communicating with their buddy and others underwater.  

 

Isn't it a lot of material to learn in such a short time?  Not at all, this class is fun.  It is amazing how easy and quickly students pick up and are able to utilize the signs.  We are going to teach you sign language hand signals for equipment, creatures and so much more!!  In the pool session, we will take what you learned in the classroom session and put it to use and communicate with your buddy, your instructor and the other students in the class using sign language.  It's great!!!

 

The best part is when you are diving for fun with your buddy and you, with specific detail, are able to sign to your buddy that there is a yellow eel eating a blue fish under the coral....and it will be easy peasy!!!!  Best part....your buddy will know exactly what you said...well that is if they have taken the class as well.

 

So take a day and let's have some fun.  You can earn a certification and also become a diver with impeccable uw communication skills!!!

Public Safety Diver

 

 

 

TBA - May 2015

 

 

This course is designed for those divers interested in taking it one step further.  Instructor Dave Faulkenberg will provide you with information that will not only give you the skills you need to perform the duties of a Public Safety Diver, but perform those duties with the professionalism, safety and techniques that are not found in all incidents.  

 

There are all kinds of self-proclaimed Public Safety Diving instructors offering courses left and right today.  What you need to ask yourself and them is: Tell me about your history?  How long have you been in this field?  Are you active currently?  Did you sleep in a Holiday Inn and read the instructor outline to offer this class?  Bonus for you:  Take the class at Blue Meridian and you will get the best.  Not only does Dave currently work as a Public Safety Diver, he eats it, breaths it and has more practical experience than anyone in our area.

 

Great thing is, you have a choice.  You can take the class with someone that follows the outline and does the suggested scenario exercises in the instructor manual OR you can take the class from someone who experienced the scenarios first hand and wrote an instructor manual.  The choice is yours!!

 

This class includes:  classroom, pool and open water training.  You would need to be available Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday.
