Pump Up Your Pixels With Adventure Sports

Get More Ooooo's and Aaaaaah's

Looking for a way to take your underwater pictures from "That's nice" to "Wow! That's incredible?"  Adventure Sports is really excited to announce a special event to help you get there!


We will welcome Greg Gebhardt, representative for Light & Motion video/lighting and for Sea & Sea UW digital cameras, strobes, housings, to share his extensive knowledge and experience.


Join us for a great workshop on Saturday, March 31st, from 1-5PM.  Greg will present the basics of Photo File Management & Workflow utilizing tagging of images, catalogs, and general culling techniques. He will also cover the Color Correction of RAW and .JPG files in Photoshop Elements. You will be introduced to some advanced techniques in composition manipulation including working with layers. He will also cover creating .PDF Slide shows, .WMV music slide shows, and some effective techniques for using the online services, Mixbook, ShutterFly, Photoworks, etc.



Bring your best 3 pictures, both printed and electronically if you can, and untouched.  You are welcome to bring your laptop and work along with Greg.  He will be using PhotoShop Elements to do the work.


The workshop will cost $50 per person, and is limited to just 10 participants.  (An additional session may be scheduled to accomodate overflow, if necessary.)  Call or stop by today to reserve your spot!

Step Up to the Challenge: Rescue Diver

Ready to take your diving to the next level?  PADI Rescue Diver does just that--by preparing you to prevent and help manage problems when they arise while diving.


Most divers say it is the best class they have ever taken.  It offers you the chance to improve your own skills, and opens your eyes to the divers around you.


Our next Rescue Diver class starts March 1st, so now is the time to call or stop by to reserve your spot in the class.  And don't forget, you'll need a current CPR/First Aid certification, too.  So we'll be offering Emergency First Response on Thursday, 23 February.


What a great cure for winter blues and boredom--one of the most exciting and satisfying dive classes you will ever take!  We hope you will join in!

Your Adventure Begins Here

Look here for the latest schedule of great dive Adventures.  And, if you don't see a trip that meets your needs, just ask.  We'll be happy to work with you on flexible arrangements!

March: Bonne Terre Mine  March can still be a fickle time with winter hanging on--but you can still log some dives in 100' vis!  March 16-18, we're headed back for more fun!

April-May: Bahamas Wild Dolphin Adventure  We have the ultimate dolphin experience for you, with Emmy Award winning videographers Becky Kagan Schott and David Schott of Liquid Productions. You will enjoy 6-days of Adventure off the Island of Bimini, aboard the 91-ft live aboard vessel Indigo. This is a snorkel/free dive trip only (wild dolphins do not like SCUBA bubbles). So this is perfect for non-diving spouses, kids and friends!  This Adventure departs from Ft. Lauderdale and runs from April 29 to May 4, 2012. The cost is $1860 for double occupancy. 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!

May 2013: Truk (Chuuk) Odyssey Live Aboard 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.) Space is limited so reserve your spot soon!

Call or stop by soon and get ready for Adventure!  If the trip you are interested in is sold out, please ask about a wait/cancellation list, or about scheduling another Adventure to that location.

Tsunami Debris in the Pacific

Recovery continues from the devastating tsunami in Japan last year--as it will for many years to come.


Another effect of the tsunami will also continue--the huge amount of debris swept out to sea.  Scientists are monitoring the debris field, estimated to contain 20 million tons of material, covering an area 1000 x 2000 nautical miles.

While the debris tracers are well north of Hawaii, they are drawing ever close to the West Coast of the US.


Learn more in this fascinating story from the BBC.
