Fins Up Baby! I love it.
I’m pretty sure that corona thing can’t get me if I’m under water so I’m putting on my wet suit, BCD, mask, snorkel, fins and the rest and heading to the bathtub! Wish me luck!
Just a note for SSI - be sure to check your privacy in the SSI website so that your buddies and instructors can find you.
So a few months ago you took someone who was afraid of the ocean and helped him become a diver. With your help I replaced fear with respect and awe.
Something I found that could be helpful when booking flights.

Hey we couldn’t have done this without you guys

Hi It’s Lisa thank you Fins Up Scuba and everyone for the epic dive vacation of a lifetime. I can’t thank you all enough for the care taken for our safety, accommodations, and fun! Can’t wait to see you all at the next social.
As we start our trip to New Zealand next week we think: ok, we need to scuba dive so who do we ask about where to go? Our friends here -- and since it is our first trip with scuba gear we have to stop in and ask a lot of questions.
Dive in the daytime. Hit the casinos and clubs in the nighttime.
This place is on Charlene Lofstedt’s bucket list. 🙃
Chris, Nicole, Leigh, Johnny and Jeff - thank you so much for making certification so much fun and easy!
The minute I walked in the shop, I felt like I was family. You listen to each person and their individual needs and take all the time needed to make your students successful. My group pretty much had two-on-one instructor-student ratio which is amazing. If anyone had any difficulty, you were right there!
Now on to Advanced Diver!
I feel like I have a whole new group of friends and can't wait for the Fiji trip!

Fins Up Scuba would like to send a shout out to Jeff O and Nick H. Jeff has been certified for under a year and earned his Century Diver (100 dives) card today. Nick has been certified for about 6 months and earned Master Diver today!! Great job to both of them!!
I did have another picture of these guys but I think this picture really shows how much fun they are to dive with!

Please welcome (and Congratulate) Fins Up Scuba's Newest Divemaster!! John started diving just about 2 years ago and has logged about 150 dives. He is an avid lake diver but has also been able to do some diving in SoCal, Cozumel, St Lucia, etc... so he is well rounded. He is also a drysuit diver and underwater photographer (he took about half of the Santa Photos for us this year).

Been a crazy week.
Lot's of inventory came in (Poseidon, Shearwater, & TUSA this week). Still waiting on the official word from the resort to open up the Dominica trip but I think it will only take a day or two to sell out when it does. We will have some In Store Holiday Specials starting Nov 22- Nov 29.
The Scuba Social is next Wednesday!!
Don't forget to sign up for Underwater Santa Photos Dec 5th!!
So much going on...Come see us!!

Shearwater!! We have them in stock!! Shearwater is having a production issue with a sourced component and is not currently able to make Perdix, Perdix AI, & Peregrine. We have a limited amount in stock and when they are gone it may be a while till we can get them again! Don't wait to long!!
On a personal note... I 100% support that they will not compromise their product and are willing to risk losing sales and market share to make the best product (s). I trust my life underwater to them (I dive 2 Perdix AI's) and I know they take that seriously.

A little about us…

A little about us…
Fins Up Scuba is a small but full service SSI Instructor Training Center focusing on incredible customer service. We are not happy with just satisfied customers. We strive for delighted customers!! We want your experience with us to be exceptional, pleasantly surprising, and memorable. After all, almost 80% of our business is word of mouth.
We are the kind of small company that tries hard to remember each customer’s name. We listen and understand your needs. It is all about personal service here!

About Classes…
We offer small classes by professional instructors and support staff that really care about your experience!
How small are our classes? We teach a maximum of four (4) students per instructor for Open Water! That means more one on one time with your instructor. That also means less time spent waiting in a class and more time doing (more actual diving practice). This maximizes your time.
We also teach CPR and First Aid programs from novice though instructor with the same care.

About Our Equipment…
We offer some of the best brands in the industry! We are proud of the equipment we sell. We seek out the best equipment for you (and us, because we dive what we sell). We look for the best products with the features you need to have and enjoyable dive experience. Our professional staff is trained so we don’t just sell you a mask, we fit you for your style and comfort. We will explain the important fit points to you. If we spend that much time thinking about how your mask fits, you can imagine the care we take getting you a regulator, BCD, or Dive Computer. We do the knowledge development so that we can get you the equipment that meets your needs.
We are also manufacturer trained to service everything we sell in house.

About Our Travel Program…
We offer guided dive (and dive/adventure) trips to some of the greatest places on earth! We make all the arrangements (except airfare usually and we will still help you with that) so that you can sign up, sit back, and relax. While you are on your trip, if you have an equipment problem or have forgotten something, all you have to do is let us know and we will do our best to take care of it for you.

Last remarks…
We may not be the cheapest out there, but we are confident that if you compare us to others you will see the value for your money. After all, we are talking about life support and life support equipment and we think you are worth the extra attention! We care about your experience! Read our reviews or talk to one of our customers and then come in and see us! You will be able to feel the difference.
Thanks,
Chris
Co-Owner/ Manager for Fins Up Scuba
