Maui Dreams Dive Co. Logbook

October 17, 2012


Mandarin Gobies
You're invited to join us as we continue to dive around the world! In 2013, we still have a couple of spots left for our February Philippines Adventure. This trip gives you more bang for your buck than any other we know of! If this dive destination isn't already on your bucket list, put it there!
And in June, we'll hit one of our all time favorite spots again,  Beqa Lagoon, Fiji!  Whether you're ready to book or just have questions, you can always email us or contact our travel guru Lori, but the clock's a'tickin', so don't miss out!

Every now and then, we've got some kind of crazy last minute deal on the Maui Diamond II, like spots for only $75 or even an occasional last minute freebie!  If you'd like to be on our Last Minute Maui Diamond Deals list, please email us with your name and email address and we'll update your record.  Also, when we say last minute, we mean that we'll usually notify you the day before, so if you don't live on Maui, you might not want to sign up for these extra emails!


And you know we're always game for parties and special events, so if you've got something in mind, don't hesitate to call us!  In the meantime, check out this clip from September's International Talk Like a Pirate Day Charrrrrter:

AWESOME SPECIAL OFFER: Book a private charter for this week or next and you'll get it for $1000 (plus tax). That's $500 off the usual price! Small print:  Certified divers, snorkelers, and passengers only, we will not be offering Discover Scuba Diving on these charters. Charter must run between now and October 31, 2012.

Aqua Lung recently issued a recall for their SureLock II weight pocket handles. 
Surelock Recall

If you've purchased an Aqua Lung BCD in the last year or two, chances are good that you have some of these pockets.  If you live on the mainland, you can get your pockets replaced locally.  If you live here on Maui, you can come on in and exchange your handles.  Aqua Lung has VERY limited supplies at the moment, and we have about 10 in our store, so give us a call, or come on down

2012 Pumpkin Carving tee shirt You know what?  We have a few divers who have been telling us for months now that they already know what they are going to carve this year - unreal!  
Then we have other divers who tell us they aren't "creative" or they don't think they can carve a pumpkin underwater.  We know that old saying, "the customer is always right:", but in this case...nope!
Carving a pumpkin underwater is fun and easy - it really is!  Plus, how often do you get an opportunity to do something fun like this underwater?  So cast away those doubts and get crackin' on your ideas.  If you think you need more guidance, you can even check out Teri's helpful blog.
Here are the basics, but please visit our pumpkin carving page to get ALL the info you need to know!
Where:  Keawakapu Beach
When:  Saturday, Oct. 27th from 8-10:am
What Else:  It's a FREE event, and scuba companies and local businesses have donated great prizes!  Advance sign-ups ARE required, so download your form here and drop it by the shop!


2011 UW Pumpkin Carving Group


GoPro HERO3s Are Coming Soon!

Yep, and they're going to be smaller, lighter, faster, and more powerful!

 The silver edition is $299 and the black one with all the bells and whistles (available in November) is $399.  Both versions now have wi-fi built in and best of all for us divers, they all now come with flat lens dive housings - woo hoo! Maui Dreams has a hefty supply on order, so check in with us on our Facebook page if you want to know when they arrive!



Effective immediately, you get a FREE transmitter when you purchase any of the following dive computers from Suunto:
D9tx, D6i, D4i, Vyper Air, or Hel02!  This offer is good through the end of December, making it an excellent gift idea for your dive buddy this holday season.  No hose, no hassle, no fuss, no muss - you buy the computer, we give you the trasmitter!

Thanks to everyone who participated in last weekend's Underwater Clean-Up!  We pulled in lots and lots of line, lead sinkers, and even a tire.  Our next clean-up will be Saturday, December 8th.  All participants must be Project Aware certified, and divers must also have their Advanced Open Water certs.  For the rest of the scoop, click here!

2012 Underwater Clean-Up  


ICurious about what to expect on a clean-up dive?  Our dive buddy Mike wrote an excellent blog a while back, and we find it's still relevant and helps explain why we are finding and cleaning up the same stuff over and over!


Congratulations also to Maui's newest scuba instructors! After TERI's Instructor Course, the exams seemed easy!  thanks also to everyone who showed up at September's Go Pro night where lots of folks signed up for continuing education and one lucky diver even won a Cobra 3 (thanks Aqua Lung!). 

2012 Instructors  

Our next Instructor Course will be in February, so if you're considering a job in the scuba industry, call us at the shop or get in touch with Course Director Teri!
