Smiles to Chase Away the Winter Blues

Future Divers?


The usual students at Adventure Sports are just a bit older, but we have never seen a more enthusiastic group of learners!  Adventure Sports was recently asked to provide a program about dolphins to the Shirley Mayes Head Start classes in Southwest Wichita.


We were delighted to do that, and with the current building excitement about dolphins around the shop, it was a natural fit! (See below!)


Adventure Sports Instructor David Freeman visited both the morning and afternoon sessions to share with the kids (3-5 year olds) some cool dolphin facts, pictures and sounds.  Both sessions were very good listeners!

So You Want to Learn About Dolphins?

We have the ultimate dolphin field trip for you, with teachers you just can't beat! Join Emmy Award winning videographers Becky Kagan Schott and David Schott of Liquid Productions for a life-changing experience with wild dolphins in the Bahamas.


Guests of all ages and experiences are welcome—this is a snorkel and free dive only Adventure. (Wild dolphins do not react well to the bubbles from SCUBA.)  So, this is perfect for kiddos, non-diving spouses, or grandmas and grandpas!


You will enjoy 6-days of Adventure off the Island of Bimini, aboard the 91-ft live aboard vessel Indigo. Each cabin has in-suite bathrooms with private showers, ensuring your surface time will be delightful.


This Adventure departs from Ft. Lauderdale and runs from April 29 to May 4, 2012. The cost is $1860 for double occupancy. This includes:


•    accommodations for the week on board

•    meals, snacks and non-alcoholic beverages on Indigo

•    gear and lessons in snorkeling and free diving;

•    photo and video workshops with your own camera;

•    even daily yoga lessons!

•    Not included: Airfare to Ft. Lauderdale or Bimini (a flight is available from FLL to Bimini for approximately $255) and one night hotel in Ft. Lauderdale before departure, if desired ($55)


Remember, space on this Adventure is strictly limited so call or stop by soon to reserve your spot!

Chuuk It!  Go Diving!

Here's an Adventure where you can dive your brains out and still never run out of incredible things to see!  This one is on nearly every diver's Bucket List: the haunting Truk (Chuuk) Lagoon.


When Japanese naval forces were attacked at Chuuk, it was a devastating defeat for them and key victory for the US.  And now, nearly 70 years later, the site has become one of the most incredible dive destinations on the planet.


Adventure Sports is very excited to offer our dive buddies the chance to make this dream come true!  May 19-26, 2013, we will sail aboard the Odyssey to explore the legendary sites of Chuuk.


We have put together a fantastic package that includes 7 nights aboard Odyssey, with 6 days of diving. Dive up to five times a day! Enriched air divers will enjoy complimentary Nitrox to ensure the most bottom time exploring.


The price of this Adventure is $3095 per person, based on double occupancy.  (Plus VAT/sales tax and $30 Chuuk dive permit. Airfare not included.)


Mark it on your calendar and start planning now to dive Chuuk with Adventure Sports! Space is limited, so reserve your space soon.

Doo Dah Divers TONIGHT

White Hot Computer


Saturday Hideout

Connect with Adventure Sports


Yes, it is the heart of winter and Mother Nature has finally woken up to that fact.  But you can still dive--in 100' vis, without being outside.


Join us for our trip next weekend, Feb 17-19, to Bonne Terre Mine near St. Louis and you'll enjoy "weatherproof" diving in the "billion gallon" underground lake.



The half-million watts of stadium lighting provide a very cool diving experience, and the air and water are a constant temperature.  It is a perfect winter dive break!


Call or stop by today to reserve your spot!

Doo Dah Divers TONIGHT

Wichita's dive club, the Doo Dah Divers, will meet TONIGHT, February 9, at 7PM at Marco's Cantina.  It is located at 6600 West Central.


Come and make some new dive buddies!


Adventure Sports is proud to support the Doo Dah Divers and warmly invites you to join in the fun and fellowship!



White Hot Computer

White seems to be all the rage when it comes to personal electronics.  So why should your dive computer be any different?



If you are looking for a rock solid dive computer that is ready for Adventure, and just happens to be "white hot," check out the new version of the Suunto D4i, now available.


The D4i White has all the great features that divers appreciate - like optional wireless air integration and a dedicated freedive mode - but now in a crisp, clean white design.


Learn more at Adventure Sports!


Now that we have your attention....  How would you like to earn PADI's most popular specialty and get more bottom time, without having to get in any cold water?  You can! With just one evening of independent study at home, and one afternoon in class, you can become a Nitrox diver.



Adventure Sports has the largest, most comfortable, most modern classroom in the area.  You'll enjoy learning how diving with Enriched Air (Nitrox) gives you more bottom time, which really adds up when you are on a diving vacation.


Check our training calendar online to learn more!
