12 Jun Five Ways to Enjoy Diving This Summer
Go Dive a New Location
Finding new areas to dive can provide a person with the chance to learn the history of an area and also give them more diving experience. When finding a new site to dive always make sure that you have a buddy who is comfortable diving these conditions and plan out the dive as much as possible before heading out! You might even find your favorite place to dive just from trying something new. Check out our dive calendar to see the next time we will be heading out to South Florida’s newest wreck, The Lady Luck. The Lady Luck is located approximately 1 mile SE of Hillsboro Inlet in Ship Wreck Park, Pompano Beach. The 324 ft. long, 50 ft wide tanker rises nearly to 60 from the surface at her mast. Artist Dennis McDonald has created a larger than life size casino on the deck that allows for great photo opportunities and lots to look at!

Taking an equipment specialty course can also provide you with a greater understanding of your gear and how to make small fixes when needed.
Invest in a New Piece of Gear
With the advances in technology increasing rapidly it can allow for gear to become outdated within just a few years. There is nothing wrong with using older gear if it has been maintained and serviced properly but chances are if you have allowed your BCD to sit in the basement for years without having anything done to it then chances are it may be time to make an investment. Not only is buying new gear exciting but it also allows a diver to have more options and functions of their gear.
