Enriched air diver is our specialty of the month and the most popular specialty scuba course. Why? Because diving with enriched air nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive dives. If staying down longer, and getting back into the water sooner sounds appealing to you, then this is the course for you! You’ll learn why diving with air that has higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time, along with enriched air equipment considerations. During the classroom session you will discuss managing oxygen exposure, practice analyzing oxygen content in a SCUBA tank, and set your dive computer to diving with enriched air nitrox.
We’ve decided that we need to go on a diet! Well.. maybe more so we need to lose some excess weight! So we are starting a clear out sale, we don’t want them on our shelves anymore. There is nothing wrong with the items, other than we just have too many. We will have clear out prices on masks, wetsuits, tshirts, bags and you don’t want to miss out – the deals run out when the items are gone!
We are excited that our EXCLUSIVE Diver City branded Prawno gear has arrived. Prawno is an ocean lifestyle clothing brand inspired by the underwater photography of Creative Director Lia Barrett. Prawno incorporates fabrics made from natural fibres like bamboo, hemp and organic cotton, as well as post-consumer plastic bottles and recycled fabrics.
Some of you may recognize the brand, we have carried it in the store in the past but this time we have our Diver City mask logo on the articles. We are proud supporters of companies that are trying to make a difference to the environment and ocean awareness. You will see us proudly strutting around in our bamboo tee’s and recycled poly hoodies!

We’ve started carrying Kamibashi String Dolls, which are a fair-trade product that are handmade in Thailand. Kamibashi is a company designed around supporting local Thai artisans and donating a portion of each doll to a number of charities. Each doll also carries a special protective message for its human!
“At Kamibashi we care – about the satisfaction of our customers, the quality of our products, and the well-being of the artists we work with and their families.
We also care about the state of the world around us, and after almost five years in business we are proud to introduce a special new group of dolls that, while cute and lovable in their own right, are also performing a valuable philanthropic purpose: for every one of these new “Kamibashi Cares” dolls that we sell, Kamibashi® will donate $.50 or $1.00 to eleven different charities that we have chosen to work with.
Many thanks to you, our customers, for not only supporting Kamibashi, but the world around us too.”
We are hosting our annual open house tonight at Diver City SCUBA from 5-9pm. We would love to see all of the faces of our dive community together to enjoy the festivities of the season. We will have goodies, good times and even some in-store deals! We hope to see you all here 🙂
