Manta Divers November, 2013 Getting ready for the holidays!
Believe it or not, we are less than two months from Christmas. Did you know that you can make a scuba wishlist here at Manta Divers? Whether you are new to diving or an old hand looking to upgrade, making a wishlist is a good way to let others know exactly what you are hoping for this holiday.
To make things a little easier on the pocketbook, Aqualung and Suunto have a couple of great promotions this winter.
For those interested in going hoseless, Suunto is offering a free transmitter with the purchase of DX, D9tx, D6i, D4i, HelO2, Vytec DS,or a Vyper dive computer. This is a $450.00 value! If you are looking to buy a regulator and BC, ask for the free Airsource upgrade. Divers are eligible for this upgrade ($150 value)if they purchase an Aqualung or Apeks regulator and BC and have completed a dive course within the last 90 days.
For those on a tight budget, remember that all of our freshly serviced rental BCs, regulators and tanks are for sale. Let's make a deal!
Planning a trip this winter? Be sure to check you dive bag and make sure the zippers all work. If not, try soaking the zipper in some hot water to dissolve accumulated salt. Once the zipper is free, lubricate it with Zip Tech or Zipper Care from Mc Nett. If this fails and the bag is shot, stop in and take a look at our selection of Aqualung and Stahlsac bags. Stahlsac is a new product to Manta Divers, but the company has been around for a long time, building a reputation for attractive and rugged yet light weight dive travel bags.
Not all scuba gifts are big or expensive. UK's Mini Q 40 makes a great stocking stuffer and is an essential daytime flashlight for a diver. If you can't bear to be separated from your smart phone while underwater, or your phone is your camera, you need an underwater phone case. This case allows full functionality of your screen. Both of these are instock now at the shop. UV Tech, BC cleaner and Wetsuit shampoo are also great gifts and something that every diver needs.
The shop also stocks several reference books for divers, such as The Complete Diver and The Encyclopedia of Diving.
Many do not realize it, but Manta Divers also sells triathlon wetsuits. During November and December all instock triathlon wetsuits are 25% off. All in stock regular priced diving wetsuits are 20% off.
Can't decide? We also sell gift certificates!
