Manta Divers April 2010 Summer Schedule


Greetings Divers!


With the days lengthening and the temperatures rising it is time to start planning the summer’s diving.  In fact, as my Facebook friends know, Mike has already been in Lake Michigan this spring.  (I think I’ll wait for a few more 70° days, myself.)  In any case, I have been hard at work scheduling Team Manta events for the summer and think we have some really interesting things planned.

I have scheduled one and two day events that will give ample chances for night dives, Advanced Open Water, and Rescue training at our favorite spots, Pearl Lake in South Beloit, and Haigh Quarry in Kankakee,IL.  In 010102010addition, since we found such a cool place to stay in Black River Falls and it was so popular last year, we have added a second Lake Wazee weekend this summer.  We will be visiting the Niagara and the Mahoning wrecks off Port Washington in July, and another, soon to be named wreck in August.  These wreck dives fill up quickly, so mark the dates in your calendar and sign up early.

 Finally, if you are an experienced diver and looking for something fun and challenging, join us in beautiful northern Wisconsin for our first ever search and recovery weekend.  Participants will locate sunken “treasures” and then learn to work with lift bags to bring the objects to the surface.  We did a little of this last year and had a blast, so thought we’d officially add it to our schedule for the season.  This is open to advanced open water divers only.

Remember that the best divers are those who dive the most, so we hope to see you underwater this summer enjoying this wonderful sport and getting the most out of your gear!
