Open Water Diver

 

Is this the year you finally take the plunge and get your PADI Open Water Diver certification?  It should be! People ask all the time, “what’s it like down there?” Believe it or not, that is a hard question to answer because depending on where you are diving it might look like the reef in Finding Nemo or you could be at a flooded rock quarry and see huge paddlefish, bass or catfish. It’s all extraordinary and fascinating, so here’s a grand idea, come along with us and we’ll explore the underwater world together!

Our Open Water class/pool sessions are scheduled and you can check the Quick Calendar tab to see what is coming up.  Please be aware our classes fill quickly, especially as we get into our warmer weather season!  Feel free to call the store for more details, if the answering machine picks up please leave your name and number and we will get back to you asap.  This class requires some pre-study work so make sure you sign-up 2-3 weeks in advance so we can get you setup and ready to become a diver.

Check the Quick Calendar tab for other class dates.  If your schedule isn’t syncing up with ours give us a call we will be more than happy to work with you!

Next available Open Water Class/Pool:

April 1 & 2

April 22 & 23

 

 

Advanced OW

 

Already an Open Water certified diver, then your next step is PADI Advanced Open Water.  Advanced picks utilizes all the skills you learned in Open Water and introduces you to 5 specialty areas of diving.  We are required to do Navigation and Deep but then you get to pick 3 areas that are of interest to you.  Maybe you are into wrecks, search and recovery or maybe night diving.  There are a lot of options for you at this point.  If you are diving in the ocean or fresh there are different dive options for each water type, some are better in salt and some are better in fresh,

Again check the Quick Calendar for upcoming classes.  There is some pre-study work for this class as well so make sure you sign up and give yourself time to get ready!

 

 

Rescue Diver

 

This class is awesome!  For most divers it is a turning point and an opportunity to build your confidence.  It switches your focus to helping others and although you are going to learn new skills those skills are designed to help you, help others. 

Prep work is required for this class and it will be listed on the Quick Calendar as well when we are offering it.  Advanced Open Water is required before you can take this course.

 

 

Equipment

 

This course is designed to make you a better trouble shooter when it comes to your gear. Sometimes people get really worried when they see bubbles coming from a place they haven’t seen before.  It is bad or is it ok but needs to be looked at.  That is our goal in this hands on class.  We will step through all of your equipment and talk about care and maintenance as well as some fixes you can do in the field to fix minor problems. 

Please be aware, this class does not qualify you as a service technician.  You are not to go home and take your regulator apart, well unless you want to invalidate that warranty!  This qualifies you to better understand what is going on with your gear and what choice you need to make to correct it.

No prep for this course but we do ask that you pre-register with us at least a few days before the class.

 

 

Just a Note:

Unfortunately the cost of supplies keeps going up and up and up.  When I opened Blue Meridian in 2000, I charged $45 to service a regulator that was purchased at Blue Meridian. In 2022, I still charged $45 for that same regulator service even though costs for service kits, etc went up multiple times.  So, it has become necessary to increase our price for regulator service in 2023.  Not much but just enough to help cover cost of the service kits a little better.

Starting on Jan 12th when we reopen, any regulator coming in for service -

purchased from BMDC the cost for annual service will be $50.

not purchased from BMDC the cost for annul service will be $90.

Thank you for your understanding.  Hopefully we can stay at this price for the next several years.

Want to Discover Scuba??

We offer a free scuba tryout session called a Discover Scuba.  We can let you try scuba diving before you make the big commitment of the certification class.  We highly recommend a Discover to anyone who is not quite sure that diving is for them.  We need about 1 hour of your time, we provide all the equipment you need, there is a little bit of paperwork but best of all it’s FREE!!  So, what are you waiting for, call us and set up your appointment to try scuba diving.  We think you’ll love it as much as we do!!!
