Hoping for that Perfect Gift?

Your friends and family 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 of items you really want or need .

STSC Goes to Winter Hours

winter_hours.jpeg

Each year just after Christmas STSC changes it's schedule to Winter Hours.  The reason is simple, divers don't seem to brave the cold very well.  We generally keep the driveway plowed and the walks shoveled. The township keeps the road plowed quite well also. I generally run the driveway in two wheel drive so I know our customers can make it but Saturday mornings seem just like the day to sleep in. Throughout the year after our posted hours we say you can make an appointment, so if you can't stand another day without seeing us make one or just take your chances and stop in.

Store Hours Dec 26 - May 15
Monday & Fridays 5:00pm - 9:00pm
Tuesday & Thursdays 10:00am - 5:00pm
Other days by appointment

Holiday Food Safety

christmas_dinner.jpg

Parties and food are an integral part of the holiday season. If you're planning to host a party and serve food, follow these guidelines from the United States Center for Disease Control:
Clean ...Wash your hands and all food preparation surfaces to help prevent bacterial contamination.
Separate ...Don't allow food to cross-contaminate - keep raw meats away from food that won't be cooked and don't put cooked meat on a plate that has held raw meat.
Cook ...You'll need to cook food at a high enough temperature for long enough duration to kill harmful bacteria. Use a food thermometer to make sure.
Chill ...Bacteria grows quickly at room temperature so refrigerate your leftovers within two hours. Keep your refrigerator at 40 degrees Fahrenheit and your freezer at 0 degrees Fahrenheit.
People Food for Pet's ...Not only is "people food" bad for your pet's health, bones are a choking hazard and some ingredients are poisonous.

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!

Scuba takes you to a different world with new colors, shapes, textures and creatures - a world where the roles you play - husband, wife, mother, father, friend - take on a new dimension.

ReActivate

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.

So the chemist, the environmentalist and the explorer came together to create an eco-conscious skin care line that is healthy for our bodies AND for the waters of our planet. Stream2Sea products are even packaged in sugar cane resin tubing.  It’s part of their commitment to sustainability and reducing their carbon footprint.  They also manufacture everything in the same town where the company is based out of , Wauchula, FL, USA.

Zena - Zeagle's Womens BCD

zena.jpg

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.

Harry Hawksbill Helps His Friends

Harry Hawksbill.jpg

by Paul J. Mila

Vibrant photos depicted on high-quality glossy pages sets this book apart from other children's books. Author and diver Paul Mila uses his vivid underwater photos to bring this story to life. Harry the hawksbill turtle discovers that his angelfish friends aren't getting along because they look different from each other. Harry teaches them they are more alike than they realize, while children also learn about sea life. This is a fun book for beginning self-readers or for parents and children to read together.

"This terrific little book has everything. The story is fantasy, but the underwater color photos showing the interaction of reef characters are real. The information about turtles is easy to understand, and the fish learn a great lesson about befriending those who are not always just like you. It even has easy, fun questions at the end to enhance the learning."
Cathy Church, award-winning underwater photographer, teacher, author

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.
