Sunken Treasure Scuba Center's Current Newsletter
Good Day from Sunken Treasure,
So here we are almost half way thru June and with any luck the weather has broke and diving should become the normal thing to do for us. As usual we have a fun packed summer of things going on so there shouldn't be any reason not to go diving. As summer continues newsletters are a little more difficult to get out so keep up to date with us on Facebook at Sunken Treasure Scuba Center or Rich Best or our web site at divestsc.com. We update these links often to keep everyone informed of what's happening. I'm also planning to start a blog to keep divers informed as to what Sunken Treasure has to offer and insights to other things in the industry.

Navigation Adventure Dive
Be the diver everyone wants to follow and make your sense of direction legendary with the PADI Underwater Navigator course. Finding your way is not a matter of luck! When everyone’s buzzing about a reef or checking out a shipwreck, they’re having a great time – until it’s time to go. Then they turn to you, because as a PADI Underwater Navigator, you know the way back to the boat. This dive can counts towards Adventure Diver, Advanced Open Water and/or the Navigator Specialty course or you can come just for the experience. Program meets at Sunken Treasure Scuba Center at 12:00pm on 6/17 with Rich
Can you really take care of yourself or your dive buddy in open water? Rewarding and fun – that best describes the PADI Rescue Diver course. This course will expand your knowledge and experience level: Rescue Divers learn to look beyond themselves and consider the safety and well being of other divers. Although this course is serious, it is an enjoyable way to build your confidence.

Nitrox / Enriched Air Course?
With Enriched Air (Nitrox), you can get it...Take a minute and look at your dive tables! How would you like to increase your bottom time at 55 feet to 155 minutes or 80 feet for 55 minutes? Now with enriched air 36, you can. One of PADI's most popular specialties is the PADI Enriched Air Diver course. Diving with enriched air nitrox lets you safely extend your no stop time beyond the no decompression limits for air. Diving with enriched air means more time underwater - but you need to be certified as an Enriched Air Diver to get enriched air fills. So whether you're into underwater photography or wreck diving, on vacation in some tropical paradise or just out for a leisurely day of diving at your local dive site, the PADI Enriched Air Diver course helps you get more out of diving by giving you more time underwater and this course counts towards you're Adventure, Advanced and/or the Master Scuba Diver program.
Program 7/21 - meets at STSC - 6:30pm must register by 7/12
