This is our yearly chance to see new products coming into the industry, learn new information about diving programs and find dive destinations that just might be fun to take our divers to. It's been four years since we've been there so we are hoping to find the latest and greatest the diving industry has to offer.

We'll also have just a fun dive, while the STSC staff will be running Deep, Wreck and Nitrox Adventure dives that count towards an Advanced Open Water Diver Certification or that PADI Specialty. So stop in the store and get your discount coupon for entry to Dutch Springs. Save a few bucks, make a couple of dives, eat our food and enjoy the day diving with your friends from Sunken Treasure.

Cleanup - Volunteers Needed for October 7th
Since 1984 Sunken Treasure Scuba Center has been involved with local waterway debris cleanups along with our partners, PADI Project AWARE (Aquatic World Awareness Responsibility, and Education), The Georgia Sea Turtle Center Marine Debris Initiative and Clinton County Cleanscapes. Since 2000 when we started keeping records we have removed over 11,000 tires and tons of other trash from our local waterways. Though we remove trash anytime we dive, this dive will focus on the area between Jay Street Bridge in Lock Haven and the dam. We'll need people on shore, in the water, photographers, boaters/boats and even a couple of people to collect data. So there is room for everyone to help. For more information or to volunteer please call Rich Best @ Sunken Treasure Scuba Center - 570-398-1458 - firstname.lastname@example.org.

Pre-registration is required by October 11th to participate in the dive, so we have enough pumpkins.

Completing Your PADI Scuba Course
Please remember that you have only 12 months to complete open water training dives to complete your certification or you will be required to take a scuba review (cost $39.95). As time nears you can call the store to make arrangements to do your dives. Group training dives during the summer are $35.00/dive and $45.00/dive from September 1st thru May 31st. Please call or email us about one week before the desired dates. If these dates don't work you can schedule dives by appointment. Cost is $40/dive in the summer and $50/dive in the winter. All equipment needed for these dives is included in the cost. Four Dives are required for certification which we do two dives a day. First day all divers meet at Sunken Treasure Scuba Center. You can find our scheduled training dives by clicking here.
You took the time and spent the money to learn to scuba dive, have you? At Sunken Treasure we feel we make that opportunity more affordable then any place else. Sure we don’t always have blue water and pretty fish however we have fun and you’ll have the chance to gain the experience necessary to make your next big trip more enjoyable. Besides I need a dive buddy.
So what do we have?
PADI Women's Dive Day is July 15th which is a STSC FREE Gear Day set aside for women only. This dive will be lead by Borden. There is also a few gear day for everyone on June 17th & August 13th.
We also have the STSC 6 Pak program which allows you once again to dive with Sunken Treasure during the 2017 dive season 6 different times. If you only dive 3 times on the card you save money. 6 Pak dives listed soon.
Finally what I think is the best deal is our Advanced Open Water ala carte program. All you need is the AOW (Advanced Open Water) student kit (49.95) and anytime STSC is running an adventure dive you can join in and the dive will count towards your AOW rating. An example would be if you looked at our schedule and saw: 6/17 - Adventure Navigation Dive 12:00pm at STSC with Rich . With this program you would read only the chapter in the AOW manual on navigation and complete the knowledge review. You would show up at STSC on 6/17 at 12:00pm. At that time Rich would go over the knowledge review with those who are diving, pass out any gear you may need to make the dive and then it’s off to the chosen dive site to complete the tasks for the navigation dive. Cost for the dive $45. Then maybe you have the time and interest to do a Night Dive on 8/13. Take as long as you want, complete 5 Adventure dives and you earned you PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification. This is truly diving at your convenience.
PADI Equipment Specialist Course & Touch...
As a scuba diver, you already know that diving is an equipment-intensive activity. From accessories such as dive lights and underwater cameras, to essential gear like exposure suits, cylinders and regulators, there’s a lot to wrap your head around.
Unfortunately, many divers are reluctant to learn more about their equipment because they feel they’re not ‘mechanically inclined’. But here’s the good news: you don’t need a degree in engineering to understand how scuba equipment works; the Equipment Specialist Touch will help you to understand how (and why) certain pieces of scuba equipment work.
The PADI Equipment Specialist Touch is a fully interactive and comprehensive digital product for iOS and Android tablet devices. This valuable tool provides a beautifully immersive look into scuba equipment through short video clips and 3D rotating images to help you get a more realistic insight into how things work.
To purchase your own copy of the PADI Equipment Specialist Touch and/or book a PADI Equipment Specialist course, contact Sunken Treasure Scuba Center today!

Stars Beneath the Sea: The Pioneers of Diving
by Trevor Norton
I In a series of brilliantly detailed portraits, this history of the daring art of diving recounts the eccentric exploits and sense-defying feats of the men who turned underwater adventure into a modern science. Spear fishermen and conservationists, treasure hunters and archaeologists, photographers and philosophers -- these pioneers invented and experimented with all sorts of amazing devices to enable them to explore the secretive and seductive depths of the sea. Among the colorful adventurers from the past two centuries included in this volume stand the likes of Guy Gilpatric, who wrote a film for Humphrey Bogart, invented snorkeling, and shot his wife; Roy Miner, who wore a bucket over his head and stole a coral reef; William Beebe, who sealed himself in a metal coffin to dangle a half mile undersea; and John Haldane, who learned how to control human breathing and prevent bends. If you've never even dreamed of diving, this book will make you wonder why -- and may indeed tempt you to try.

Recall ScubaPro Galileo SOL and Luna Dive Computers
SCUBAPRO has notified the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) that it is voluntarily recalling 1,486 UWATEC Galileo Luna and Sol dive computers sold in the United States beginning May 7, 2015. This provides you with information on the recall along with details on the logistics that will be used to complete the recall.
We learned from a small number of consumer communications that certain Galileo dive computers experienced screen freezes. No injuries have been reported. Out of an abundance of caution, and consistent with our safety-first philosophy, SCUBAPRO is voluntarily recalling dive computers with specific serial numbers.
The affected products are UWATEC Galileo Luna and Sol dive computers with these serial numbers:
Galileo LUNA: from 150422 0058 001 to 150903 0338 005
Galileo SOL: from 150423 0202 001 to 150921 0001 005
If your UWATEC Galileo Luna or Sol dive computer does not have a serial number in the ranges listed above, then it does not fall within the scope of this recall.
Consumers with affected computers should return them to an authorized SCUBAPRO dealer or to SCUBAPRO directly. Please call our toll free hotline at 1-800-790-3757 to register for the recall and we will mail you a return form and a postage-prepaid box to return your affected units to us. Consumers will receive free replacement units in early 2016.
