|STSC Annual Christmas Party/Open House|
|Time seems so valuable but we still try to get everyone to at least stop by Sunken Treasure Scuba Center each year to see your diving friends, if only for a cup of coffee or a glass of eggnog . So please come to our party on December 6 starting at 6:30 pm. Come share stories about dive seasons past and those to come with a gathering of friends in the present. We'll be serving light refreshment. Please find the time to come visit friends!|
|Are You Thinking About Christmas Shopping Yet|
|Your friends and family are and they know what you like to do in your spare time but do they know what you would like to have or need to complete your ideal scuba kit? Why not tell them what you really want? You can complete a Holiday Wish list and let them know what you would like to have or really need. These wish lists take some of the guessing out of the gift giving process and keep you from getting 3 different dive knifes to add to the one you already have.|
At Sunken Treasure scuba Center, we have drafted a sample list. You can download a copy of it here. If you drop a copy off at the scuba center or e-mail us a copy when someone come in or calls us we will help them with the item or items you really want or need .
Also we can help others from duplicating gifts for you. Sunken Treasure offers the best pricing everyday and this gives us a chance to make sure we have your correct item, size & color available for your gift. Gift Certificates can even be downloaded from our site.
|Beginner Scuba Lessons|
There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to -after all, human beings weren't designed to do that - but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with teaching new divers is coaxing them out of the water each night when class is over. The fun part? Well it's all fun! As a certified diver, fabulous dive destinations, exciting people, unparalleled adventure and common tranquility await you.

The award helps identify practical actions that we to protect and preserve the environment. STSC is only the second scuba center in Pennsylvania to receive this prestigious award.|
Each year I sneak away from STSC to continue the tradition of improving my skill level through training. Two years ago I earned my Sidemount Diver rating and this year to the next step to become a Sidemount Instructor.
|This year I also took the time to earn my Solo Diver Instructor Rating. Look for STSC to offer these programs in the near future and remember You don't need to be at this level to continue your education to Be Adventurous...Be Amazed...Be A Diver..|
|On Thursday November 7, 2013, Rich Best, was awarded the SSI Platinum Pro5000 card in Orlando, Florida at the diving industry's annual trade show sponsored by DEMA (The Diving Equipment & Marketing Association).|
20 years ago SSI (Scuba Schools International) began to
recognize divers from around the world for their accomplishments as divers.
The SSI Platinum Pro5000 Diver card is the calling card of the world’s most elite water explorers. The list of cardholders is a “who’s who” of diving, containing the world’s most prominent dive leaders, scientists, photographers, manufacturers, retailers, and resort operators.
What makes the SSI Platinum Pro5000 Diver award so special is that it is all about diving. The unsung divemaster on any island and Jacques Cousteau earned their cards the same way—by diving 5,000 times.
|confided SSI that it’s the first diving credential they ever received…and their favorite.|
The Platinum Pro5000 Diver card cannot be purchased. Individuals must apply for the award and be recommended in writing by two Platinum Pros. They are to have made 5,000 or more dives or made 2,500 dives and document a significant contribution to the recreational scuba diving industry.
To properly put 5,000 dives into perspective: it takes 500 dives a year for 10 years, or 100 dives a year for 50 years! That’s a lifetime of dedication and commitment to the sport.
|This product is ECO friendly...spit antifog gel works on anything that fogs, including dive masks, paintball masks, sport goggles, safety goggles, ski goggles, eye wear, windows, binoculars, scopes & more. Apply wet or dry - spit gel is so thick it can even be applied under water! Just one tiny drop works all day! spit antifog... the most recognized name in antifog... see what you’re missing! CAUTION: spit antifog is not recommended for swim goggle use. For swim goggles use Quick spit antifog spray.|
|The Perfect Gift Card if Your Diver Doesn't Own Gear Yet|
|A great gift helps keep divers diving. As they dive more they become more comfortable, gain confidence, are safer divers and meet new friends. Our 6 Pak program offers that and a lot more. With a 6 Pak card the diver gets to choose 6 dives listed on our schedule, come dive with a Sunken Treasure staff member and get all the gear needed to make the dive. The Cost? Just $99.00 for 6 dives. YES, that's $99.00 for all the|
|equipment you need to rent and the opportunity to have a group of people to dive with. You can do the math, only $16.50 per dive. That can be a savings of up to $23.50 per dive. Pick-up your Six Pak card today at the store. This is what we did in 2013: Dates so far: 6/1, 6/9, 6/13, 7/7, 7/20, 8/3, 8/11, 9/4, 9/13 & 9/21. Unlike other years, dives included at least 6 different dive sites. Some of the dives included Dutch Springs, Pine Creek, Loyalsock, dive sites in the Williamsport area, a chance to use an U/W Vehicle and even make a night dive. So get your card today for the 2014 season. (cards can only be used for the season purchased)|
|Geo Cache Found at Jay Street|
Sunday, Aug 25, 2013 Richard & Gabriela Fuchs from Burlington, Ontario found the Jay Street Cache that has eluded people for two years. Now the rest of the story as written by the finders:
Those pesky little unfound caches... Don't you hate them, staring at you, taunting you? Well, we do, and so we had to do something about it [:D]
|year now. I came across it when I was looking for "nearby" (in the widest sense of the word) scuba cache and got intrigued by the fact that it had been unfound for almost a year. With both of us being certified divers, I've kept it in the back of my head ever since.|
This year's summer went on and yet again nobody found this cache. Even worse, there was no activity whatsoever. I did some research about the dive site and figured that August would be the best time to dive it. With 5+ hours drive for us one way, a long weekend would have been the perfect opportunity and we had our eyes on the Labour Day weekend. However, a quick call to Rich at STSC (without revealing anything about our intentions) told us that the dive site would be closed for a boat race on that weekend. Bummer.
Last week, we kinda figured that this weekend could be our last chance to give this cache a shot, so a quick change of plans was made. I pulled up the STSC website for some info and noticed that on this Sunday, a "free gear day" was listed. Hmm... Another quick call to Rich (the CO) confirmed that this was indeed what I thought it would be (cool!) and he also confirmed that the cache was indeed still there.
So this morning, we met up with the CO at the dive shop for our free gear and a nice little chat about the cache, geocaching, us being crazy for coming down here all the way from Canada, and all kinds of other stuff. He was very careful not to give any additional hints for finding the cache. He gave one, but it turned out to be more confusing than helpful, so I won't repeat it here lol.
Arrived at the dive site, we geared up and got everything ready. We were told that the coords should be accurate, so that's what we concentrated on. Swam out on the surface and got to within 2 meters of GZ, where we dropped out makeshift "anchor", which served as surface marker and center point for our search area. We descended and began our search...
We searched around the anchor, looked in every hole we could find, expanded our search in every direction, returned to the anchor, looked some more... We found all kinds of stuff, but no cache. After almost 40 minutes of fruitless search, we were slowly running out of both ideas and air. We ascended and called out to the CO for some additional clues.... which he was very reluctant to give, lol. We got a description of the general area of GZ, which at least told us that we weren't in the completely wrong spot. Then he gave us one more vague hint, which apparently he told other people before (in fact he thought it's given on the cache page, but isn't), and which made no sense to us at first. But after letting it sink it, we eventually realized that it referred to something we had already seen. Dang! So close!
Headed back out, re-found the object in question, descended again and after this, we had the cache in hand within 2 minutes! I have to admit that we had made this much harder than it was... The cache really wasn't hidden in any sort of evil way, it is exactly what it says on the cache page and in the logs. You don't have to move or lift anything. If you're in the right spot and look at it the right way, you'll see it in plain sight. The hiding spot fits the container beautifully (or is that the other way around?)
I wish we would have time to take our own coord reading right on top of the cache, but we didn't. The posted coords put you in the correct general area, but I'd estimate that the cache is around 30-40 feet away, in downstream or maybe SE direction. Of course it's also entirely possible that our anchor placement wasn't quite right from the beginning, so who knows...
|2013 - UPDATE - Jay Street Bridge Dive Site Waiver - UPDATE - 2013|
The Jay Street Dive site was closed down in 2011 and No Trespassing signs were posted. At a monthly meeting Woodward Township voted to keep the signs up and enforce No Trespassing. However the relationship that the Township has had with the divers has been a good one and they will allow divers to continue to dive there as long as they fill out a wavier which you can download here. You now need only fill out the waiver once which is good forever. You can either mail it or drop it off at the Woodward Township Police Station/Township Building or drop it off at Sunken Treasure Scuba Center and we'll make sure it gets there. Please don't dive until you fill out the wavier. They can just as easily close down the site to all. Also please pay attention to the parking signs. There is NO PARKING on the bridge side of the pavilion or anywhere in the grass.

|STSC Wet Suit Trade In Program for Children|
In the interest of helping our younger customers, Sunken Treasure Scuba Center adopted a trade in program last year on new suits. This program is for those buying wetsuits for our customers 15 yrs of age and younger.
Here is how it works.
|≈ Trade in within the 2nd year and receive 30% of the cost towards a new suit for that diver|

|Not Just for Diving - DryBase from 4th Element|
|Using ultra fast wicking fabric, the Drybase garments are the ideal alternative to cotton underneath a thinsulate or other undersuit. The garments' exceptional wicking performance means that the skin is kept dry and the wearer is much more comfortable during and after the dive, and is able to get the most out for the performance of their undersuit|
Designed with a looser fit, this top can be worn on the way to the dive and then worn as part of a layering system, next to the skin. Flat seams make the top very comfortable and the wicking
fabric keeps the skin warmer and drier. Wear underneath your everyday clothes prior to the dive, and then there is no need to get changed completely, thus helping you to stay warmer beforehand.

|Much More Than Just A BC|
|The Jetpack is the ultimate solution for airline carry-on & transport to and from the dive site. It's a true hybrid, not a bag and more than just a mere BC. We took a long look at what it means to travel with Scuba gear to a destination and realized pretty quickly that it didn't make sense to take a BC, your heaviest and most bulky piece of kit with shoulder straps, and stuff it into a bag - so you could carry it... By combining a semi-dry day bag with a one size fits all fully adjustable travel BC, we have managed to create a travel system that can carry a complete set of dive gear (regs, computer, fins, suit, etc) and travel amenities (clothing, toiletry kit, computer, etc) easily for multi-day travel, even a week depending on how you pack... all in only one bag.|
|The jetpack is ruggedly constructed from high quality durable materials but weighs in at only 6.25lbs. The backpack/BC combo weighs in at a meager 8.25lbs! Fully packed with travel friendly dive gear stays under 30lbs with ample space for the rest of the amenities you'll need for a week of diving and traveling. The spacious (42 cubic liter) and light semi-dry bag has compartments to enable ease of packing and use during travel making it the perfect day bag for boat dives or shore excursions during your trip.|
The Aeris Jetpack represents a true solution for the adventure traveler.

|Aeris Ion Lt|
The compact ION LT has been reduced in weight by removing the swivel and by adding our ultra-flexible braided MaxFlex hose. Paired with the ultra-compact AT600; a brand new over-balanced diaphragm first stage weighing in at just 1.5 lbs."The ION feels light in the mouth due to its small size and ABS/Polycarbonate composite construction, plus it's a great breather, as evidenced by perfect scores on the ANSTI breathing machine." -- Scuba Diving Magazine's 2008 Scuba Lab Review
In Stock at STSC
The Magnum uses the same technology and design that has earned the Brut worldwide recognition for durability and reliability. The Magnum goes further to use a venturi device to reduce breathing resistance at the higher flow rates when it is needed the most. A flow control switch allows the diver to switch the venturi effect off when at the surface or in shallow water to stabilize the regulator for better manageability.
second stage, which received very good scores in comfort, is a compact design that reduces drag. While it offered very good breathing in most positions, the Mag-num breathed damp on occasion with divers in the different diving positions. Testers gave the purge system and venturi lever excellent scores.
|League 100 from Princeton Tec|
|Light weight and comfortable shape make the League 100, Princeton Tec's newest handheld waterproof dive light, and an ideal secondary in the water. This light may even become your favorite on dry land. This unobtrusive light hides out of the way until it is turned on. The sculpted shape makes it feel like an extension of your hand and it provides impressive output - 210 lumens for ten hours.|
|Zeagle Zena BCD|
The Zena BC, however, has been designed by women as a buoyancy system specifically for women. The twin straps adjust to fit waist and hips independently, while the elastic front panels provide outstanding fit and comfort. Zeagles patented PFS sizing system allows for the waist size, chest size, and torso length to be independently fitted. The Zena is designed to be fitted with the upper waistband at the natural waist, placing the weights and buoyancy low, around the body's center of buoyancy.
