It’s that time of the year as the kids go back to school and the nights get a little cooler people start putting away their summer toys. We don’t see as many divers during the day so it’s time to cut back our hours and leave a little more time for us to go dive. We still have daytime hours and evening hours and even Saturday mornings until Christmas. For 41 years we have tried to keep our posted hours and do a pretty good job of it. However if your traveling a distance to get here you might just want to double check we’ll be here as there are times the store isn’t open for example: September 13,14 & 28 the store will be closed. Remember if our hours are not working for you, you can always make an appointment.
Monday & Fridays 5:00pm - 9:00pm

Drift Dive the Niagara River
Yes, it’s the same river that eventually spills over the falls; and no, you won’t go over the falls. While the current is swift, it's a safe two to three miles per hour. The trick to survival is keeping your eyes on what's in front of you to prevent collisions with rocks that seem to spring up quickly at times. Dives last 60 - 90 minutes (depending on the speed of the current) at a depth of 20 to 30 feet. The visibility is surprisingly good and there’s lots of large freshwater fish to see including bass, walleye, lake trout, the occasional salmon, a rare musky and perch.
We’ll be diving a different site each day so come experience the thrill of flying underwater down the mighty Niagara River!
Only divers with or taking Advanced Certification, the Drift Diver Specialty or can show 50 logged dives can come on this trip. Dive groups are made up of 3 divers with a dive flag for each team. You can dive either day or both

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!
ReActivate Your Certification
Haven’t been scuba diving lately and want a quick refresher? The ReActivate™ program is the perfect way to brush up on your knowledge and skills from the PADI Open Water Diver Course before jumping back into the water. Whether you want a few reminders or need to go over the basics, ReActivate is personalized for you: You conveniently review scuba concepts on your tablet, mobile device or computer, then go diving with a PADI Professional. It’s quick and easy, and a good way to prepare for your next PADI course or get ready for a diving vacation. The best part is, divers who complete both the knowledge and in-water skill refresher receive a replacement certification card with a ReActivated date on your new card.
Any PADI certified diver who wants a refresher or pre-travel update should ReActivate. Dive shops appreciate seeing a recent ReActivate date on your certification card because it means you’re ready to dive in.
If you want to learn more about diving in a new area or in different dive conditions, also ask about completing a Discover Local Diving experience at a local dive site.
ReActivate is a new PADI program that may not yet be available in all areas. If you can’t access ReActivate, or can’t access in your language your PADI Instructor can still complete a scuba skills review with you, and you can refresh your diving knowledge with Scuba Tune-Up Online.
*Your PADI certification does not expire. Participation in PADI ReActivate™ is not mandatory, but recommended as an easy way to refresh your foundational scuba safety knowledge and skills if you haven’t been diving in a while. Divers who complete both the knowledge and in-water skill refresher receive a replacement certification card with a “ReActivated thru” date on it.
What will you learn?
Using ReActivate Touch (for tablets or mobile devices), you’ll immerse yourself in dive scenarios and make decisions that test your understanding of important dive safety concepts, dive planning essentials and problem management. Move through ReActivate at your own pace and delve deeper into topics when you need or want to.
In the water, your PADI Professional will help you regain comfort and confidence in scuba diving. You’ll practice a few safety-related skills and then go over anything you specifically want to review.
How can you start learning now?
Contact your local PADI Dive Center or Resort to get ReActivate Touch or ReActivate Online and start working through the scenarios. Or, download the PADI App to your tablet or mobile device (if you haven’t already) and purchase ReActivate Touch to get started immediately. Then, schedule your ReActivate water skills session.
What gear will you use?
You’ll use basic scuba gear including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, BCD and a scuba tank. The exposure protection you need will depend on whether you dive in a pool, confined water or open water dive site. Your PADI Dive Center or Resort staff will explain other equipment you may need to ReActivate.

Ratio Dive Computers
Our Gear Is Extremely Personal. Find Just The Right Dive Computer For You!
Ratio is a small Italian company that manufactures a range of incredible dive computers with some very unique features for recreational and technical divers. Being a smaller manufacturer they are able to adapt and experiment much more easily and quickly compared to the main brands who have to go through lengthy R&D and sign off procedures so they are able to bring new technologies to the market much more quickly.
Currently their range only has three models but each of those is split into varying levels of complexity from purely recreational all the way to rebreather support. There is the watch style iDive Sport and the iDive Color which covers everything from free diving to rebreathers. The larger iX3M wrist mounted computer which is more technical focused but the entry level Deep version still provides everything a recreational nitrox diver would need. They share a lot of features but the obvious differences are the size and the screen.
Sunken Treasure is a Ratio Computer dealer so stop in and check them out or vist their web site at http://www.ratio-computers.com/scuba.htm

Zena - Zeagle's Womens BCD
The greatest difficulty in properly sizing a woman's Buoyancy System is not finding a smaller size, or allowing for the bust, but lies in the fact that women's bodies have a defined waist where a waistband must fasten in order to secure the BC. At the same time, women tend to have both a shorter torso length and a lower center of buoyancy compared to men. Conventional buoyancy systems, which would ideally be worn lower for best balance and comfort, must be worn higher, around the narrowest part of the waist, in order to be secure.
The Zena BC 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 zippered panels provide outstanding fit and comfort. Zeagle's patented PFS sizing system allows for the waist size, chest size, and torso length to be independently fitted, positioning the weights low, around the body's center of buoyancy. The torso adjustable shoulder straps and side straps come equipped with squeeze-style" side-release buckles for easy donning/doffing. The Zena BCD has a 31 lbs. (13.6 kg) lift capacity bladder, and a 24 lbs. (10.9 kg) capacity Ripcord Weight System with a 16 lbs. (7.26 kg) rear trim pocket non-releasable capacity. Attachment of accessories is made easy with the four stainless steel D-rings on the vest and storage of gloves, small light or other accessories can be accomplished with the expandable mesh quick-pocket" at waist. Built to last from the Zena will give years of reliable service. To provide easy trimming of buoyancy the Zena has a lower left and right rear over pressure relief/pull dump valves.

Recipe by Goya
"A burger with a fiery twist! The classic cheeseburger gets a tasty update with the addition of GOYA® Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce. These chipotle chiles are jalapeno peppers that have been dried, smoked, and then packed in a flavorful sauce made of tomatoes and other spices. Here, we add these special peppers twice--first to the mayonnaise, which gets spread on the buns, and then mixed into the meat before its grilled. And don't skip the red onions and tomatoes: they add a sweet, crisp bite."
1/4 cup Goya Mayonnaise
1 chipotle pepper from a can of Goya Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce, finely chopped
1/4 cup sauce from a can of Goya Chipotle Chiles in Adobo Sauce
3 tablespoons Goya Minced Garlic, divided
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro
Goya Adobo All-Purpose Seasoning, to taste
2 pounds ground beef (80% lean)
1 teaspoon Goya Vegetable Oil
6 slices Cheddar cheese
6 hamburger buns
6 (1/4 inch thick) slices red onions
6 (1/2 inch thick) slices tomatoes
1. In medium bowl, stir together mayonnaise, 1 tbsp. chipotle sauce, 1 tsp. garlic, cilantro and adobo; cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
2. In large bowl, gently mix together beef, chopped chipotle, 3 tbsp. chipotle sauce, remaining garlic and adobo until combined. Divide meat into 6 portions; form into 1 inch-thick patties. (Take care not to over-handle meat or else it will toughen).
3. Prepare grill to medium-high heat, grease with oil (or heat oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat). Cook burgers, flipping once, until charred and cooked to desired doneness (about 12 minutes total for medium rare). Add cheese to patties about 5 minutes before taking them off grill.
4. To assemble, divide patties evenly among bottom buns; top with onion slice, tomato slice, lettuce and top bun spread with reserved chipotle mayonnaise.

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.
