Don’t miss a dive due to minor issues with your scuba diving equipment. Whether it's a missing o-ring, wetsuit tear or a broken fin strap, the PADI Equipment Specialist course teaches you to manage basic repairs and adjustments. You'll also learn more about how your gear works, making you more comfortable with it and better prepared to take care of your investment.
Course Overview The purpose of the PADI Equipment Specialist course is to familiarize divers with the operation and maintenance of diving equipment. It is not an equipment-repair course. Training relative to the repairing and overhauling of equipment, except for very minor servicing, is not to be part of the curriculum.

Underwater Pumpkin Carving Contest & Camping
Last year was such a great success, that we have decided to go for round 2 of underwater pumpkin carving!
What to expect: Saturday, October 20th at Lake Tenkiller Dive Park. Get to the dive site early to find parking and get your gear set up. We will brief at 4 PM and then send you in to do your carving. All divers must be back to the assigned area by 5pm.
We're keeping to the Pumpkin Purist category. Pumpkin Purist? Yep, that category means that anything attached to your pumpkin must be made of pumpkin - no non-pumpkin props!
Winners of 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place will win Prizes to be chosen before the event.
RULES: All carving (except your precleaning) must happen underwater. All divers must enter and exit the water in buddy teams. Normal safe diving practices apply. Only certified divers may participate. ALL DIVERS MUST BE OUT OF THE WATER BY 5 PM (please don't take your jack-o-lantern for a dive or we'll have to turn this into a search and recovery event instead).
Once out of the water, please check in with a member of our staff and then place your pumpkin in the assigned area.
Voting will begin at 5:30 PM and winners will be announced as soon as the votes have been tallied. The pumpkin with the MOST votes wins!
Cost: Supplies, pumpkin, carving implements and equipment, and remember to pre-clean your pumpkin!
How to sign up: Complete a Liability form and bring or email to Sea Shanty! When you arrive at the site, please make sure we have a signed release form from you. It's a good idea to bring your form in prior to the event.
