Grow your own dive buddy! Manta Divers is offering for the first time, an introduction to scuba diving for 9 & 10 year olds. This is a fun class to let the youngster who is not quite old enough for the full diving class, to try it out. The class includes a short classroom session covering equipment, diving safety and a presentation on marine wildlife. Then it's time to head to the pool where scuba skill development is incorporated into games and fun. The cost is $90.

We will do several dives, including a night dive, then stay over night, either in a hotel, or at a camp site and return in the morning Sunday to dive some more. Complete Advanced Open Water in a weekend!

Hey one more thing. Check out this photo and video website: www.divecreations.com by our friends and Team Manta Members, Roy and Cheri Small. Roy and Cheri were first certified with us in January of 2007. Since then, they have completed Advanced Open Water and Cheri is also a rescue diver. They’ve dived in Honduras, Curacao, Bonaire, Texas, Bonne Terre mine, and United Arab Emirates, to name a few. They have always enjoyed photography and it was no stretch that they would combine this activity with their passion for diving, and with awesome results!
