ScubaPro -- Party! 

Tuesday, April 7, 6:00pm – 7:00pm:  As the newest dealer on the west coast for SCUBAPRO’s unique line SCUBA equipment, we are receiving regular (and very thorough) staff update seminars.  These cover their newest specialized equipment, innovations, proper assembly and usage of the individual components, and future dive industry trends.  This year SCUBAPRO is bringing out some exceptional items, which are just hitting the market now (along with their beautiful new catalog). 

The factory representative will be here with this annual update.   He will be bringing many new items, including their latest computer, the Heads-Up-Display (HUD) module, and the newest, most innovative UW camera on the market from SeaLife.  We asked if we could invite our group of divers to this event.  SCUBAPRO was happy to do this and doubled down by bringing $300 of gift certificates to be raffled off. We thought you might enjoy seeing the latest innovations from SCUBAPRO, so we are inviting you to this interesting update, which will be on the evening of

Tuesday, April 7, from 6:00pm – 7:00pm.
The representative is bringing 15 - $20.00 gift certificates ($300 total) to be raffled off for those in the seminar and seated by 6:00pm (great odds!). 
These have always been a learning experience for our staff; we think you may also find it both useful and interesting.  We’ll have refreshments on hand for your enjoyment.
As for some added features:  We are doing some spring cleaning and will have a large are of equipment at 50% off (no typo) to be opened up after the seminar.  Also, all SCUBAPRO equipment will be 10% off that night.

Please RSVP if you plan on attending so we can have the proper amount of refreshments on hand.  Our seating is a bit limited, so it is first come/first served.

The NAUI Enriched Air Diver course is NAUI’s most popular specialty scuba course. Why? Because scuba diving with nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, then don’t hesitate to become a nitrox diver.
