And Scubapro is offering up to $70 back on the purchase of a certain regulators or Air IIs. To top it all off, we can give you six months same as cash. Buy it now and donít pay for it until the end of the dive season. How much easier can we make it for you. Come on in and let our expert staff put you into the proper equipment. These offers are for a limited time. Donít let it pass you by.

Well, no one is denying that it has been a strange travel year, but it is time to move on.
We have done quite a bit of travel over the past 6 months and it is not nearly as bad as
the press makes it up to be. We have found check-in to be relatively easy and security to
be refreshingly efficient. Unfortunately, with the thousands upon thousands of flights on
the move in this country, the press can always find something to pick on. The truth is
that air travel has never been safer and if you have not flown since September 11, you
will be glad you finally did it. So look at the trips below and send us your deposit.
Weekend in the Bahamas
If you desperately need to get away, here is the perfect chance. Four days in Nassau. Two
days of diving with Stuart Cove. And Bob Miracle to entertain you along the way. And it is
only $695. I didnít think that we would see that price again. It hasnít been $695 in
several years. This is a fun trip. We are staying at South Ocean Beach and the dive shop
is right there. We are not holding any spots so you need to let us know right away so we
can get you an airline seat. That flight will sell out.
Bonaire - April 27 - May 5
We already have 15 people going to Bonaire on this trip with us. Although we are not
holding any spaces, it may still be possible to get some space for you. If you are
interested, give us a call, or consider our August Bonaire trip (see below).
Sea of Cortez - June 22 - 29 -- Now $200 less
I love the Sea of Cortez !! There is nowhere you can go and interact with the Sea Lions like the
Sea of Cortez. They are the friendliest, most curious sea lions that I have ever encountered. It
is one of the ten best dives you will ever make. And Iíll throw in a dive with the manta rays as
well. When we were there last year, we dove a new sight where several mantas hang around most of
the day. It is a great dive as well. We are looking for about 8 to 10 people to join us on this
adventure. It is coming up soon, so you have to act quickly. The trip was $1795 but we managed to
get some better airfare prices and have reduced the cost by $200. Let us know immediately if you
can join us.
Bonaire - August 17 - 24
It is family month in Bonaire and we are heading back. We will be staying at Lionís Dive this year.
It is right on the beach with good diving right off the dock. To get your heart racing, try a night
dive right off the dock. There are a couple of big tarpon that will trail along behind you while you
are diving. The flash of silver as your light hits them will get your attention. We stay in condos
with a full living room, dining room and kitchen. It is a great way to do a trip. Diving includes 6
boat dives and unlimited beach diving. Kids 12 and under can stay free in your condo with 4 paying
people. Call and ask me for details. The trip includes air, condos, diving, and rental cars. We already
have 17 spots sold. Donít delay in making your reservation. The price of the trip is $1395. This is the
same price we charged 3 years ago and without the car.
Cozumel -- October 12 - 19
Our infamous Cozumel trip is scheduled again for October, 2002. And it is a pretty good
deal to boot. We will once again be staying at the Reef Club with all meals, drinks,
accommodations, and 5 days of diving included. Airfare is included as well. And the cost
is only $1450 !! Now is you would like to save another $55, get us your $300 deposit not
later then May 1 and the trip will cost only $1395. After that, I am afraid that we will
have to charge the extra. Also, we have to give up any seats we are holding after
August 1. So donít plan on waiting until the last minute. I am afraid that you will be
Saba - Thanksgiving Week
We are presently looking into diving Saba, November 23 - 30. Saba is a tiny Dutch Antilles
island about 35 miles from St Maarten. It has some really good and unique diving. The
island itself is very unique. It is about 5 miles by 5 miles and over 3000 feet high. It j
ust sticks straight up out of the Caribbean. It is real laid back - like the Caribbean was
50 years ago. The diving offers some pinnacles and seamounts that you donít often see in
the Caribbean. I will post the price on the web site as soon as I have it.
It is important to remember that all prices are based on double occupancy and on current airfares.
Unfortunately airfares can change up until we actually purchase the tickets. (Then, of course, the
airlines charge a penalty for any changes, if they allow changes). This is usually not a problem,
but it can happen. Remember that on most trips you can supply your own airfare. Many people today
think that they can find cheaper airfares on the web, and that works fine for us. (See the following
article). Also please note that if you are signing up alone, we will try to line up a roommate for
you, however, if we cannot there will be an additional charge for a single supplement. Again, this
is not something under our control and we must pass this charge along. We also recommend trip
cancellation insurance. If you do need to cancel the trip, there may be penalties that are not
under our control.
We regularly have Scuba Diver courses starting throughout the area. Even if you have a friend who
does not live in the neighborhood, remember that we teach courses from Quakertown to Newtown, from
Abington to Doylestown. Why send them somewhere else when you know the quality of instruction that
they will receive from Underwater World. Give us a call or check the web site at www.diveunderwaterworld.com.
If you have just completed your Scuba Diver course, have been away from diving for a while, or just want to hone
your skills, then you should take the Advanced Scuba Diver Course. This course is one weekend, six dives.
We will work on navigation, advanced buoyancy control, and night diving, as well as air consumption and a few
other things, as time permits. Every diver should take this course. It is $120 and some of the dates are listed
below. Check the web site for additional dates.
Rescue Diver -- June 8 & 9
This is another course that every diver should take. It is much more than teaching you how to rescue other divers.
Diving is a really safe sport because we are very safety conscious. The trick is not to just be ready to react to a
crisis, but to stop the crisis from occurring. We will teach you to recognize dangerous situations and how to manage
them. We will teach you self-rescue and finally we will teach you how to rescue your buddy or another diver. You will
want to have First Aid/CPR (see below). Also if you want an Advanced Rescue Diver card, you will need O2 Provider (also
see below). You will be thrilled with this course. The fee is $175.
Master Diver Course -- June 3rd
This is the premier course for diving knowledge. With 6 - 7 class sessions and 5 days of diving, you will complete this
course and feel really knowledgeable about diving. We will even take a trip to the recompression chamber at the University
of Pennsylvania. The cost of this course is $195 and is one of the courses that you need to take on your way to becoming a
Divemaster (or as an end in itself). The course will start on June 3rd, so sign up now.
First Aid / CPR
Not just because it is a prerequisite for Dive Rescue certification, this course should be taken
by everyone, whether a diver or not. It is two nights long and may save the life of a loved one
someday. You never want to be in a position where you wish you had taken it . Sign up now. Only
$75.00. Starts January 21st.
This is a great course to take over the winter when you canít drag your sorry butt out there
to dive in that cold water. (Of course, if you took our dry suit course below....). This course is
three nights long and will teach you how to make field repairs to some of your equipment. You will
have a better idea how things work and will feel more comfortable with you equipment. The cost is
only $95.00. Starts January 14th.
This is a great way to extend your diving season or just make yourself more comfortable any time
of year. We will spend a night in the classroom, a night in the pool, and then go diving. the cost
of the course is $125.00 and we will credit that towards the purchase of a drysuit if you purchase
one within 60 days. That makes it a free course. We will be starting the next one on December 3rd.
Looking for more bottom time. Nitrox will change the way you look at no decompression limits. You
will find that in some cases you can double those limits. Many people believe that nitrox is used
for deep diving, but the truth is that it is used to extend diving at tbe depts that we normally
dive, 70 -120 feet. We run the course about every 6 weeks. Check our web site or give us a call for
starting dates. $75.00.
Share the excitement. Take great pictures to decorate your home or office or show your friends. We
will be looking at digital photography as well as film photography. And we can also offer you the
opportunity to dive with the sharks at the New Jersey State Aquarium. Call for details. Course
starts February 17. Only $125.00
Well, it looks like our wandering spirit is off again. Al will be leaving us shortly to
return to Paupa New Guinea, this time to live and work for a while. He will be on the
small island of Kaveing working as a divemaster (living in a hut and eating tourists -
it is Paupa New Guinea after all). He figures on being there until December, but there is
an office pool going with dates varying between 3 months and forever. We shall see. And
then Caitlin has been accepted to a program where she will spend 6 weeks in Australia and
Fiji counting fish. (When I was in college I couldnít even get to Ft Lauderdale for Spring
Break.) I did see tears in her fatherís eyes. I am not sure if it was because he was going
to miss her or he figured out what it was costing. I know we are going to miss her.
Rebates & Cash Back
Well, the dive industry is getting a bit more aggressive with their marketing and it is to
your benefit. It started with Aqualungís Buddy Program, designed to give you $75 back. If
you come in with your dive buddy and you both buy Aqualung equipment totaling $500 between
the two of you, we can give you an instant $75 rebate. Not a bad deal. And that is on top
of the deal that we will give you. Now Scubapro is getting into the act with up to $70
back on the purchase of a single regulator (just in case you canít get your buddy to make
a decision). To top it all off, we can give you six months same as cash. Buy it now and
donít pay for it until the end of the dive season. How much easier can we make it for you.
Come on in and let our expert staff put you into the proper equipment
Psst... Want a deal...
Every so often we find proof that the local dive center is going to continue to ba a part
of the ďnew economyĒ. Just recently it was announced that Performance Diver, the largest
mail order dive equipment company would cease to exist. That means that they will no
longer be around to service all the Performance regulators and Performance bcs that they
have sold. So.. people will say, we will bring it to the local dive center for servicing.
The problem is that we do not have parts or manuals for this equipment. And because we
were not trained on it, specifically, we are not insured to work on it. If you want a
graphic example of why to buy from your local dive center, there it is. Even if the local
dive center went out of business, at least if you purchased name-brand equipment, you
could get it serviced at another dive center. But in the case of a private label brand
like Performance, when they go out of business, you are left with a scuba paperweight.
