AUGUST 2020
WELCOME TO OUR AUGUST NEWSLETTER
Belize Palms
Hello!

It's so easy to get caught up in the negative - the state is on fire, we have a global pandemic, the political ads have been playing for what seems like months already. But life is starting to come together. The kids are back to school (though for some, school is their living room again), we can distract ourselves with several different sports, and diving is a possibility again.

New countries are opening every month, with our travel team on top of the latest news and developments. We have a group trip to Galapagos gearing up to travel, and we've even had the chance to dive ourselves with our recent travels to Cozumel. If you need an escape, give us a call!

We look forward to seeing you soon!

JOIN US FOR A VACATION AT HOMESTEAD CRATER
Homestead Crater
With Aurora Reservoir closed to teaching this year, we've made monthly visits to our other "local" dive destination, Homestead Crater. Located in Midway, Utah, this 92 degree natural geothermal crater is an ideal destination to complete your certification dives, all while getting away and enjoying a mini vacation. Stay in the charming Midway, or live the life of luxury in Park City as you explore one of Utah's best ski towns.

COZUMEL DURING COVID
We did it; we went diving. For those that want just the highlights, here you go:
  • No, we didn’t get sick
  • Yes, Cozumel took the virus very seriously, enforcing social distancing, applying hand sanitizer every few feet, spraying down bags with disinfectant and generally following all protocols prescribed by the CDC, WHO and Mexican authorities. Twice during our 5 day visit we witnessed Mexican authorities measuring table distances and confirming all standards were being met.
  • Yes, the diving was excellent, but no, the reef didn’t change dramatically in the 3 months without divers. Overall we find Cozumel to offer incredible diving considering the cost and ease of travel. Loggerhead turtles, blacktip reef and nurse sharks, large Rainbow and Midnight Parrotfish were seen on numerous dives, and the typicals (angelfish, wrasse . . . click here to read more.

Rescheduled trips have you miss your two year window to stay fresh? Then our Scuba Refreshers are the choice for you!

SCUBA REFRESHERS ~ If it’s been longer than 2 years since your last dive, then you’ll need a SCUBA REFRESHER. In this four hour class, instructors will share practical tips from their personal experience of diving and jump in the water with you to make sure you are comfortable setting up your gear, controlling your buoyancy and review your emergency skills. The class is offered three times each month, and is often required by a resort if you haven't been diving in a year. If you have been out of the water for longer than 10 years, you will need to schedule this class privately.
