Featured Item: New Air Integrated Computers at Aqua Adventures!

By now you either know the benefits or have heard the buzz about why it is important to dive using a computer. It doesn't matter if you are "not going deep" or "following a dive guide"or "not into techie dive gadgets." The benefit of using a dive computer is clear--> SAFETY!  Dive computers will track your current depth, maximum depth, length of dive and do the complex "math" associated with multi-level diving, off-gassing during surface intervals and repetitive dive profiles. You will be able to prolong your dive time--safely.  And that ascent rate?  No more guessing - it tells you if you're coming up at a safe speed or need to slow down.  Some computers even track multiple tanks/gases, have integrated digital compasses, adjust to your altitude automatically, and can function as your every-day watch.

Air integrated computers allow you to take this safety level to new heights. These computers are also able to calculate your remaining bottom time based not just on the Doppler No-Decompression limits, but also on your air supply and how hard you're breathing.  They can be attached to your regulator via a hose or they can be completely hose-less. Yes, you read that correctly!  The computer receives the tank pressure via a transmitter attached to your first stage regulator.  Imagine the freedom of having one less hose on your regulator!

Oceanic is running a special this month- a FREE transmitter with your purchase of a hose-less air integrated computer!  That's a $400 savings!  During this promotion, you could purchase one of these computers, complete with the transmitter and the USB cable to download your dive data to your PC or Mac for under $700 (+tax).

Aqua Adventures, an authorized Oceanic dealer, will be happy to assist you in finding the right dive computer for you and answer any of your questions. Stop by or call us, this promotion ends July 31st!
