Hello Divers,

Well it’s been quite an eventful summer so far. I am happy to report that the Down Under ran more dive charters to date than any of the previous summers.Divers stayed safer than any of the previous seasons by executing responsible dive plans and safe diving practices.

With the help of our "infamous Captain Bert Valle" Aka the Crazy Cuban, we were able to introduce some new reefs into our pretty substantial list of sites. New Barge and Pete's 301 (Named after Pete Holmes' 301st Dive) are two new faves.

We hosted 3 successful Instructor Development Courses with 100% passing. Good Job Team and introduced over 200 new divers to our wonderful underwater world.

We found some new creatures this year including strange new Nudibranchs, Oscillated frog fish, a 100lb Sea Sturgeon, and a Husker's Conger Eel.




Thank you all for making this a spectacular season. Even though the retail center is closed Mondays and Tuesdays after this week, the Down Under will still be running daily. We are just a phone call away.

Please dont forget to check out our upcoming dive vacations:
Palau March 18 (only four spots left!)

Congratulations to all of the newly certified dive leaders!
