2015 Travel Party

 

 

Saturday January 31st  10-2

 

 

Join us for some food, friends, fun and exotic destinations that only dreams are made of.  We will provide information on all our selected destinations for this upcoming travel season.  

 

This is an open house format so you can come and go as you like.  Hang around and watch some videos or take a peek at some pictures, listen to some tropical island sounds and munch on some tasty snacks.

 

We are thrilled with our destinations this year and the fabulous pricing on each of the trips is amazing.  Don't miss your chance to dive in some of the most beautiful destinations diving has to offer!!

 

If you cannot make the party, all the information will be updated on the web pages in the travel center directly following the party.

 

 

 

Open Water Classes

 

 

We are implementing some changes to our Open Water Classes.  We've made it simpler and cheaper!!  

 

In our old policy your total cost for certification with rental for the checkouts was running $285.  Now, it's available to you for $280 with the purchase of a full set of basic gear (mask, snorkel, fins and boots).  If you choose not to purchase your basic gear from Blue Meridian, that's okay too but the course cost will be $380.  That's right, we're giving you a $100 off your class cost just for buying the gear you need anyway from us.

 

Another change - it's all inclusive.  No additional fees here and rental charges there.  Its a flat fee that includes everything.  Your fee includes:  All books, DVD, classroom and pool sessions with your PADI Instructors, rental gear usage for the pool and your checkouts, 4 checkout dives at the quarry, your c-card, your graduation gift and our passport to the most awesome sport in the world.  In addition, your 15% student discount will continue 60 days from the date of your certification.  So, you can take advantage of our student discount pricing well beyond your graduation. 

 

We DO NOT include the entry fees to the quarry as part of the new pricing so that will still be a separate charge of $15 per person per day to get into Mermet Springs.

 

Let's talk about your gear purchase:  All students are required to have a "scuba quality" not snorkel quality set of gear (mask, snorkel, fins and boots).  We have always and will continue to give our students a 15% discount on any purchases they make.  In addition, we have always and will continue to include a deluxe mesh gear bag with any purchase of a 4pc basic set.

 

We are excited about our new policy and hope you find it much simpler to understand than our previous policy.

 

 

 

 

 

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!

 

 

 

 

Enriched Air Nitrox

 

 

 

Hard to go anywhere and not have the option to dive Nitrox.  Catch is you can't use it if you aren't a certified Nitrox Diver!!  Come join us for an informative look at "Nitrox".  Find out the benefits and restrictions of using Enriched Air Nitrox.

 

We are offering the course on the following days:

 

Saturday February 7th - 10am

Saturday April 18th - 10am

 

You must pre-register for this class and pick up your books at least one week prior to the course date.

 

 

 

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.
