March is Here; Spring Break is Coming!

Get Ready for Fun Here or There

Do you have spring break plans that involve bubbles? Now is the perfect time to get ready with a SCUBA refresher.  We're delighted to help you tune up your skills and get ready for that fun spring break vacation. Come join us in the pool for a bit, and you'll shake the rust away!


And don't forget to get that dive gear ready for spring break, too.  If your regulators need service, you won't find better, more experienced dive gear technicians than at Adventure Sports.  Stop by soon to get everything ready for that big spring break Adventure.

Dive This Month at Bonne Terre

It's hard to figure Mother Nature's mood in March--she can be wintry, stormy, delightful or all three in 24 hours.  But, when you dive the fabulous Bonne Terre Mine near St. Louis, none of that matters!  The "billion gallon" lake is underground, and "weatherproof!"

Learn more about Bonne Terre in this great article from our friends at Divers Alert Network, in the online edition of Alert Diver.  You'll find out why it is considered one of the diving gems of the Midwest.


Then, pack the gear and join us for our Bonne Terre Mine Adventure 16-18 March!  It's fun diving at its most enjoyable, and it is also a great place to earn your Advanced Open Water certification or a Specialty!


Call or stop by to reserve your spot!

A Picture Worth a Thousand Bubbles

Love diving and want to have a way to share the love?  Underwater digital photography is a great way to get more out of every Adventure.  You can relive the beauty and wonder of diving by sharing your pictures.


But it ain't easy!  Everyone who has ever tried taking pictures underwater knows that it's a very challenging environment.  So we are really excited about a special workshop for all aspiring and even experienced underwater photographers!


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!

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.

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!

Flying and Diving for Spring Break?

Everyone knows that flying these days can be a real hassle--so we were delighted to find this great little tool that helps you plan travel with your dive gear. will quickly and easily display the baggage allowances and costs for your flight!  The tool is even smart enough to take into account elite flyer status.



This will help in researching flights--you might find that a slightly higher ticket price is more than offset by the way baggage is handled, for example.


And if you need a great dive gear bag for your next Adventure, we have a great selection. Stop by!
