One DUI Ticket You SHOULD Get

When is a DUI Ticket a Good Thing?

DUI.  To quote Inigo Montoya in the cult classic "The Princess Bride," "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."


In this case, DUI means Diving Unlimited International, the premiere dry suit manufacturer.  And here is a DUI ticket that you DO want to get:  DUI Demo Tour 2012.  This is a fun weekend where you can try out DUI's fantastic products in the real world--in this case, the somewhat chilly waters of Beaver Lake.  But when you are in a DUI dry suit, those waters will hold no fear--you will be toasty warm!



Come with Adventure Sports and give it a try!  Or, if you are already a dry suit diver, come and enjoy some fun diving with a host of your fellow divers.


The DUI Demo Tour will be at Beaver Lake April 28 and 29.  You can see more information on the Tour's website here, or stop by Adventure Sports for more information and to purchase your ticket.


And by the way, this DUI ticket is the only one we hope you ever get--drive safely!

Quench Your Thirst for Diving This Month

Bummed because you can't manage a spring break getaway to dive? No problem--here is a way you can get your bubble fix with no plane ticket or passport required!


We're headed to the fabulous Bonne Terre Mine near St. Louis for some great diving in crystal clear water--100' vis, no kidding!  And weather is no worry either because it is all in the "billion gallon" underground lake.

You can read 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!

Tell Your Dive Stories With Great Pictures

Like the old saying goes, "a picture is worth a thousand words."  But if you are frustrated because you feel your underwater pictures are only worth, say, 800 words, here is a great opportunity to take it up a notch!


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!

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!
