Next class will be SSI TechXR Advanced Nitrox/Tech Fundamentals. If you are interested in trying tech out, this is the class for you. If you know you want to dive deeper and longer, then this is definitely the class for you. Contact us now for more information or to sign up. Discounts for those signing up by 7/31.
We are now settled in Annapolis, MD, and getting things set up. We'll be working with Scuba Hut in Glen Burnie. More to follow as the dive season kicks off.
Well, the time has come to shut down operations in Texas. Jamie and I are moving to Maryland in about two weeks. If you are up in that area, give me a ring. We'll see how the economy goes as to reopening operations up there. If all goes according to plan, we'll be back in San Antonio in about four years. In the meantime, dive safe and have fun!
Congratulations to Jamie, Alexandra and Ian on completing their Advanced Open Water Diver, to Jeff for completing his Master Diver, and to Mike for completing his Open Water Diver.

Go Tech with SSI's TechXR Program
SSI's TechXR program is the ideal way to get everything from an introduction to technical diving, or to learn everything you need to safely plan and conduct decompression dives with Trimix. Even if you aren't looking to go deeper, this program will significantly increase your skills and knowledge. Contact us for more information or to sign up. Class coming later this spring, so sign up now to get the equipment list and books.
Go Nuclear!!! (and get the T-Shirt)
Well, not exactly, but there is only one place that I know of where you can dive an old nuclear missile silo; and we're going there March 20th and 21st. The silo, now called "Dive Valhalla" is only open by appointment, and we are renting it for our private enjoyment over the weekend. It's located about an hour North of San Angelo, TX. I've been there before, and it's a great experience. For more information about the site, check out this link. The cost for admission for both days is only $60, so sign up now.
Update: We've had to postpone this trip. I'm thinking about sometime in June. If you want to be updated when we reschedule, shoot me an email and I'll let you know.
Another great weekend!
Congratulations to Ernesto, Nhat, Christina, Jordan and Heather on earning their Open Water certification. We had a good time up at Aquarena Springs, and thankfully the weather was better than last weekend when we did the pool sessions (in a nice warm 76 degree pool). Another class starts next weekend (January 23). Sign up now if you're interested.
Congratulations to Mike and Kenneth on completing their Open Water Diver class. It was chilly, but the water was much warmer than the air. It was nice to have the Aquarena Springs training area to ourselves though. The next class starts January 9th, and there is still time to sign up.
Winter isn't stopping us!
Open Water Classes have been starting every two weeks, and have been filling up quick. The lakes are cooling off quick, but thankfully we still have the warm(er) spring fed waters of Aquarena Springs and the Comal River to dive. Also, we have a nice indoor heated pool for the class. Next class starts January 9th, sign up now.
