Oronogo Closed But We Have New Dive Locations For You

Long Time Training Lake Closes

Thousands if not tens of thousands of Midwest divers have trained there--doing skills on the platforms, getting that first swim to the airplane, finding the gorilla and the computer desk, or making that first thrilling dive to 100' over the wall.  But now, the owners of Captain John's in Oronogo, MO, have announced that the lake will be filled in as part of mining reclamation in the area.

 

John and Regina Mueller shared the news with the regional dive community this spring, and all of us at Adventure Sports wish them all the best in the future.  Their warm hospitality to divers is legendary and we will miss seeing them so regularly through the year.

Don't Worry--We are Still Diving!

If you are ready to get certified, or earn a new certification, Adventure Sports is ready with two locations for training dives!

 

We are getting set for our second season of diving at our local dive training lake.  Our training platform that was removed from Oronogo will be reassembled and sunk there in the coming days to make training even easier and more enjoyable.

 

For those wanting a bit more Adventure, we are now also conducting training dives at Tenkiller Lake State Park in Oklahoma, which features a SCUBA park and training facility.

 

This beautiful lake is well stocked with fish, and the SCUBA park features a number of fun sunk objects to visit in addition to training platforms.  It is a really great place to go diving for training or just for fun.

 

Our first trip to Tenkiller has already taken place and divers reported plenty of fish and an enjoyable weekend.  All of our dive buddies are warmly invited to join us!

From Tec to Rec: Sidemount Diving Catching On

Here's another idea that is moving from the tec diving community to the recreational diving world:

 

Some divers are also changing things up by going to sidemounted tanks instead of carrying the whole load on their backs.  Learn more here:
