Upcoming Dive Trips
We have set our 2023 trip schedule. Prices are still being nailed down but if you see a weekend you would like to join us on, please contact us and let us know. All trips do have set minimums to run so we need to have as many advance reservations as possible to collect payment and reserve your spot.
Our trips always include hotel accommodations (based on double occupany), entry into the parks or dive sites and gear rentals, including tanks/weights, as long as we have your size available. All rentals are first come/first serve.
Most trips longer than a weekend include your gear rental as well, but usually require you to transport it yourself. We will schedule time to meet you and have you try your equipment on before checking it out for the trip.
June 24-25 Mermet Springs - $165.00 per person
Mermet Springs is one of our favorite dive trips. The staff there are like family and they strive to give everyone the best experience possible. This is the home of the 727 from the movie US Marshals, as well as plenty of other wrecks to check out. They also have a large population of paddlefish to meet.
We will be offering fun diving, Open Water and Advanced Diver class during this weekend. Camping prices may be available upon request.
August 12-13 Pennyroyal or Haigh Quarry - Price TBD
The location for our August trip is still up in the air. We will either be traveling to Kankakee IL, about an hour south of Chicago, or Pennyroyal in Hopkinsville KY. Both offer great diving and we will be offering fun diving and Advanced Diver at either location.
Stay tuned for updates on this trip.
September 16-17 White Star Quarry - Price TBD
White Star is located near Bowling Green Ohio and is a great dive site. It is operated by the local county parks and offers clear water, a family friendly site, and has plenty to see.

October 14-15 Philadelphia Quarry - $165.00 per person
We plan on finishing off our local diving season back at Philadelphia Quarry in October. This will be weather dependent and interest level so if you would like to go, let us know ahead of time.
We will offer fun diving, Open Water, and Advanced Open Water depending on conditions.
December 11-15 Florida Keys - Appr $875 per person but price TBD
We are planning a trip to Key Largo/Islamorada this December. It will be run at the same time as our annual Thomas More University dive trip and led by Divemaster Lisa. This trip will include hotel accommodations for 4 nights, an afternoon of shore diving at a local site, 3 2-tank boat dives, entry into the History of Diving museum, tank/weight rental and equipment rental (as long as we have your size).
Price is still being worked out but should be in the $875 range. This will require advanced reservations since space is limited.
July 2024 Bonaire, Dutch Caribbean - Appr $1700 per person but Price TBD
We are still in the early stages of planning but we will be leading a trip back to Bonaire, Diver's Island, in July 2024. This is a crowd favorite at one of the most diver friendly islands in the world. We will be renting a large villa surrounded by satellite villas for our dive group again.
This trip will feature 7 nights accommodations at either the master or one of the satellite villas, unlimited shore diving with a free Nitrox upgrade, tank delivery service to the master villa twice a day, and one full day of sailing and diving on a catamaran that includes food, drinks and sunset cruise before returning to the dock.
If you have never been to Bonaire, they offer over 40 unique shore diving sites on the main island and truly have 24 hour diving. Can't sleep? Go out for a dive. Want to see the wreck of the Hilma Hooker by moonlight? Let's go for it! When you're not diving, hang out by the pool or drive and explore the island. We will be doing a day trip/dive in Slagbai Park as well, so we'll go out for a day in this remote desert park.
Prices will be set in July 2023 and deposits accepted as soon as the price is set. We will then offer a payment plan for the remaining balance. Available rooms will be reserved in a first come/first serve basis but we will try to meet diver's requests for rooming assignments.
