We are very excited about having TDI/SDI as a sponsor this year as they share the vision of working together in dive events to achieve success for the dive shops, as well as, fun for the diver.
Dive activities during Rec-2-Tek include diving on the wrecks of the Spiegel Grove, Duane, Eagle, and Bibb, as well as, technical diving for those qualified on the Northern Lights and Queen of Nassau. Classes available during the event include, TDI certifications for tri-mix, advanced nitrox, deco procedures, advanced wreck which will be taught at the members dive shops.
Special guest Richie Kohler and John Chatterton will be teaching together for the first time ever during the event and offering a 3 certification course consisting of Advanced Nitrox, Deco Procedures, and Advanced Wreck. These two accomplished wreck divers will also be hosting several activities during the week long events, from a happy hour at Buzzards Roost, book signing and presentation at History of Diving Museum, and a BBQ at Horizon Divers. This will give the attendees to the event a chance to meet, talk, and ask questions of them.
Scubaocity.com, a new on-line dive tracking/reservation system for dive shops is creating a calendar of these events and can be accessed by visiting https://www.divecapital.org, the non-profit organizations website.
