Scuba Shack Weekly – Volume 1, Number 14
Wow. It is December already. Just where did 2018 go? The shop is now decorated for the holidays. Our first Christmas in the new location.
I guess you know it is December when we start working with Peter on the Nassau trip. He already has that twinkle in his eye. We are pleased that we have been able to keep the cost of the Nassau trip with Stuart Cove in line with last year. We are just as excited that the scooter dive which was extremely popular last year is also still a part of this year’s trip. Scuba Shack’s long and successful history in working with Stuart Cove has allowed us to continue to have an awesome trip to the Bahamas. None of this however could even be remotely possible without the energy of Peter Katz. If you haven’t been on a dive trip with Peter – put that on your bucket list. You won’t be disappointed.
Over the years I have had a lot of underwater cameras, starting with the disposable film type. Remember how awesome we thought it was to take pictures underwater. I have done HD video tape, a variety of different digital cameras with their associated housings, and the GoPro.
My latest little underwater camera is the Nikon W300. It is small, compact, rugged, and waterproof to 100 feet without a housing. I took this to Turks and Caicos, took photos both above and below the surface and I thought they came out great. A little white balance of the underwater photos was all it took. The camera is small enough to fit in your pocket, has optical and digital zoom, built in wifi, and Bluetooth. The camera retails for about $390.
I’ve included some of the pictures taken while we were out with Dive Provo. Check out this camera online.
Finally, we continue to support Project Aware by being 100% Aware. That means we donate $10 for every PADI certification issued by Scuba Shack. Our latest donation was for nine more certifications in November bringing our 2018 results to $440, and we started in late July. When you certify with Scuba Shack you are also helping protect our oceans. Thank you.
Thanks for tuning in,
