Winter is one of the best times to continue your scuba education, and here are 3 reasons why:
1) Classes are smaller and boats are less crowded. The summer rush is over and warm water divers stay at home. Our instructors are still very eager to teach and you get more attention from the instructor with a smaller class size.
2) Winter is the perfect time to do certain specialties like drysuit and night. Buy a drysuit at Eco and get a free drysuit specialty class. A free class and beat the cold at the same time? That's a no brainer! With less daylight hours, extend your diving opportunities with a night specialty and see all the cool critters that hide out during the day like octopuses and pipefish.
3) Visibility usually gets better during the colder winter months. Our kelp forests also thrive in colder waters so with thicker kelp comes more marine life. These are the perfect months to work on your Fish Identification specialty and Underwater Photographer specialty.
And don't forget...once you have your rescue certification and 5 specialties you attain the Master Scuba Diver rating, the highest recreational certification you can get as a recreational scuba diver!
