Ol' Blue Eyes Was Right: Best is Yet to Come

Great Fall Diving

Savvy divers know that fall is the best time for diving in our region.  The weather remains warm and comfortable for quite a while yet, and in the water, visibility improves. 

 

Weekend after weekend, Adventure Sports divers are reporting great diving and fun times at Table Rock Lake.  Why not reserve a spot and join the fun?

 

Call or stop by to join in some "bubble therapy!"

More Great Fall Diving: Bonne Terre Mine

If your weekends are jammed in September and October, here's a great opportunity to get that gear out of the closet and in the water:  we're headed to Bonne Terre Mine in November!

 

The "billion gallon underground lake" has 100' vis, lit by a half million watts of stadium lighting.  With mine artifacts left in place from the day the miners stopped working, it is a fascinating weekend of diving.

 

Call or stop by to reserve your spot now for our Bonne Terre Mine trip 23-25 November.

Incredible Chuuk (Truk) Next May

Looking for warm, clear, blue water for your diving? We understand and we have a once in a lifetime Adventure lined up for you next May.

 

Why not scratch one off the bucket list and join us diving the stunning reefs and haunting wrecks of Chuuk in Micronesia?

 

Chuuk (or as it was known then, Truk) Lagoon was the site of a devastating US attack on Japanese naval forces in February of 1944.  Today, it is the "Holy Grail" of wreck diving--ships littering the floor of the lagoon, covered in spectacular corals and populated by beautiful Pacific reef fish.

 

Topside, you'll be spoiled by the Odyssey live aboard experience!  We invite you to join us for this once in a lifetime Adventure, May 19-26, 2013. See more details in our trip listing below.  Call or stop by to reserve your spot for spectacular diving.

WHY IS THIS MAN SMILING?

Diving Around the World Wide Web

While we are, of course, dedicated divers, we also do our share of surfing (on the World Wide Web, that is).  We came across a couple of gems this week that we just had to share with our dive buddies!

 

First, you just have to take a minute and watch this incredible video of a seal actually holding hands with a diver.  No, we are not making this up--it really happened. Check out the video from CNN:

 

 

And next time you are headed to Brussels, Belgium, by all means take your dive gear!  It is home to the world's deepest swimming pool and it is open for diving!

 

It is more than 100' deep, and is a comfortable 86F. Read more about it and watch a video of divers dropping to the bottom here.

 

Doo Dah Divers

Wichita's dive club, the Doo Dah Divers, will not meet in September due to the club's annual trip to Beaver Lake.  The next meeting will be Thursday, October 11th, at 7PM. The meeting will be at Marco's Cantina, located at 6600 West Central.

 

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