Why Dive with an Air-Integrated Dive Computer

Imagine yourself on a relaxing dive. Perhaps you’re photographing a particularly cooperative turtle or just pleasantly swimming alongside your favorite fish. With one easy glance at your air-integrated computer, you check your depth, time and air. You never lose sight of your critter friend and you know exactly how much bottom time you have left and how much air you have left at depth.

Those of us who dive regularly with air-integrated computers know how convenient it is when all of your critical information is accessible on one screen – depth, bottom time and even your breathing rate so you know how fast you are consuming your air.

The lakes are frozen over, its time to dive!!!!!

During the winter months here in Michigan many divers think of warm diving destinations as their only option to get wet. For those who are ready to dress for the occasion there is another option, Ice Diving!!!!! Last year we were denied the opportunity to engage in this very different yet cool (literally) for of diving. A special certification is required to engage in Ice Diving as the overhead environment demands additional safe measures. If you’re already a certified Ice Diver or looking to take the class and join on in this great experience call the store at 248-549-0303 today and get your name added to the list. We’ll be finalizing our plans shortly and contacting those who are interested with all the details.

The Sola Dive Light, the least expensive light you’ll ever own

Since their release in February of this year, these little powerhouses have been one of the most talked about items here at Rec Diving. People love the Solas because of their light weight and compact size, but they sometimes shy away from these beauties when they compare them pricewise to the other LED lights. While they might cost a little more at the register, I’m going to tell you how the Solas will save you more than three times their cost in the long run.

Light and Motion Changes our Expectations of a Dive Light

Well the folks from Light and Motion have decided to take the technology they refined developing video lighting into the smallest, lightest and powerful package yet that can cover us no matter what our application. The Sola series lights come in three different models: the Dive, Photo and Video. Within each of these groups the Sola comes in two or three versions offering all of the options you might need for the task they’re optimized for. Sound confusing? Don’t worry we’ll dive into the details.
