Boston Sea Rovers 2019 Workshops

Evolution Scuba will be hosting propulsion and gas management workshops at Boston Sea Rovers in March. We know you’ll find these sessions well worth your time, and look forward to seeing you. You can register in advance below, and we’ll be certain to hold a good seat for you.

Elements of Diving – Mastering Propulsion

Have you ever wanted more control of your diving? Have you ever wanted to stay in one place in the water with out moving? Have you ever wanted to back up underwater?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions then this skills clinic is for you. Please join Evolution Scuba’s instructors and staff for an in-depth workshop on the Elements of Diving that will bring your outlook and abilities to a new level. This workshop will start in the classroom, then move to the pool area for land drills and confined water training.

Participants can choose to get in the water or audit from poolside. Bring full scuba kit if you plan on joining us in the pool. Confined water participants must fill out medical and liability waivers, and present their certification card.

9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 10

Workshop Fee – $80, with a portion of the fee donated to the American Breast Cancer Association.

Gas Management – Made Simple

Throughout your dive education and/or career you have been told you must return, end the dive, or come back with at least 500-800 psi of gas. But, have you ever been taught how to calculate this? If you were, did you understand it?

We will show you how simple it is to manage, track and calculate gas. This work shop will start with physics and physiology of you and the dive equipment to make sure we all are on the same page. We then move into the the basics of gas planning. We’ll ensure your foundation of “where and how the gas goes” is completely understood.

This program will enlighten you; it will not bore you. Give us a few hours of your time and you will have a much clearer understanding of a usually complicated aspect of diving.

1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 9

Workshop Fee – $40, with a portion of the fee donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.

DPV Demo at Dutch Springs

Last weekend, Evolution Scuba attended the 2nd Annual Dive Expo at Dutch Springs in Pennsylvania. Our team represented and introduced many divers to the dive propulsion vehicles from SUEX, the Submarine Exploration Company.

Underwater scooters are not just for cave divers. DPVs are a great help for New England divers as they can effortlessly move you to a site when diving from shore. The DPV allows you to conserve gas, reduce fatigue, and helps to ensure you’re more comfortable in the water.

For additional information about the SUEX dive propulsion vehicles and training with DPVs, contact us here at Evolution Scuba.

USS Spiegel Grove – Respecting our American Flag

On a recent dive trip to Key Largo, Florida, the dive team from Evolution Scuba takes the time to clean the American flag that sits on the wreck of the USS Spiegel Grove (LSD-32).

Propulsion Workshop held at Boston Sea Rovers

On March 11 Evolution Scuba hosted a Propulsion Workshop at The Boston Sea Rovers Show in Danvers, Massachusetts.

The Boston Sea Rovers are the proud sponsors of the “Longest Continuously Running Dive Show in the World, and are a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of the underwater world. Started in 1954 as a means of educating the public how to safely use scuba, this yearly show has evolved into a world renowned three-day event that draws attendees, presenters and exhibitors from all over the world. The show is designed to entertain and educate the public on topics of exploration, filmmaking, scientific discoveries, scuba diving and more.

Evolution Scuba’s propulsion workshop was designed to give scuba divers “a taste” of the unique and quality training that is offered by the Evolution Team. It was a huge success with 18 divers taking part in the 6 hour lecture and pool session. Topics covered included body position and control along with propulsion techniques including the back up kick.

All participants did very well with the skills and as of today, more than ten of them have signed up for more training. All enrollment fees were donated to the National Breast Cancer Association, and we thank all participants for that. A special thanks to James, Ian and Kyra for making the long drive and helping with the class and students.
