Finally spring is here and the Easter holiday is right around the corner. We hope that you and your family have a warm and happy Easter celebration. A lot of people look at spring as a new beginning, a time when everything comes out of "sleep mode" and reaches for the sun. Get outside, reach for the sun and breath in the fresh smells, the beautiful sights and the wonderful sounds of a blossoming spring!!
Open Water Classes!!
Everybody has the fever for Open Water Certifications this spring!!! We are filling up our available classes in record time. If you are interested in our dates for classes, please refer to the "Quick Calendar" button to the left and you will find a listing of all our upcoming classroom/pool sessions and open water checkout weekends. We need both to complete your training.
We apologize, but if you see "Full" we are at capacity on that class and you will need to look at another date. If you are having trouble matching an available class to your schedule....don't worry...please just call us and we will work with you to find a solution and get you certified.
Please join us as we welcome our newest member to the Blue Meridian Team. Jennifer will be working with us part-time in customer service. Jennifer is an accomplished diver as she holds many specialty diver ratings as well as her Rescue Diver rating. So, if you hear a new voice on the phone or see a new, smiling face around the store it's likely Jennifer. Make sure to take a minute and help us welcome her to the team!!

Advanced Open Water
You hold in your hand your Open Water Diver certification card. Pride swells in you as you recall how hard you worked to achieve that goal. Memories rush back of flooding and clearing your mask, fin pivots, flutter kicks and hovering.... awwwh....memories!! : )
But you have a friend that constantly talks about Wreck diving on his vacations and he has a special card that he shows you that isn't exactly the same....it says "ADVANCED OPEN WATER". So what is the difference and why would you need to take the next step and become and Advanced OW diver?
Open water courses are designed to introduce you to scuba, teach you what you need to know to be safe in your diving, how to use the equipment, how to plan your dives. Advanced Open water takes that information and builds on it. Utilizing the skills from Open Water we are able to introduce you to different types of diving. This course allows you to find your niche. Navigation, Deep, Wreck, Night, Boat, Photography, Dive Propulsion Vehicle, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Search and Recovery, Drift, UW Naturalist and the list goes on.
The course is easy and fun. Much like Open Water you have a dvd and book for the course. Knowledge review questions pertaining to the areas of interest you want to try and the dives themselves. 5 dives will be completed in different areas. Deep and Navigation are required for completion and then you can pick 3 other areas that are your choices. This course is truly about experiencing the dive.
We offer Advanced Open Water on any weekend that we are doing Open Water Checkout dives. Please check the Quick Calendar tab at the left to see what weekends we have available for you to take your next giant stride into diving!!!
Just a quick update on our students undertaking the huge leap into the professional side of diving in the PADI Divemaster course. Classroom sessions are nearly complete and we have pool and open water sessions on the horizon.
This class is challenging to say the least. So if you know Jared, Lisa, Larry, Lance, Jason, Bryant or Doug...give them a word of encouragement to help them as they strive to reach their goal of DM.
We will update everyone when the course is finished and we have some new PADI Divemasters on deck!!
