JCA Elite Scuba instructs recreational and technical divers throughout the Pacific Northwest. Choosing the best certification is easy. Look for a program that lets you set the schedule, take as long as you want, and an instructor that gives personal and individualized attention. Even if your time is limited, safe, complete, and flexible instruction will always be the first priority. That's what I do!

Hello fellow divers, students, and everyone thinking about learning how to scuba dive. It has been an amazing year! The weather is resuming its normal ebb and flow of rain and snow and certainly has been interesting including certifying a couple of divers while it was snowing! Check out Audrey...!!! That's dedication.
The end of the year is approaching and I've decided to do another New Year's Eve diving, certification, food, fun, and fireworks spectacular. You can find out more about it by checking out my events pageor watching this video. We'll be staying in the dorm at Sunrise Motel in Hoodsport, Washington. The dorm has a full kitchen and refrigerator, stove and oven, and can sleep up to 14, but 10 would be a good number and give us a little extra room.
I'll be doing lots of cooking between dives or after the day of certification dives so please consider trying some of my specialties. If anyone else would like to cook, we would love to try some of your favorites as well but anyone can make or bring anything. The event is $125 for all three days. Arrive as early as Friday, December 29th at 2:00pm and depart on Monday, January 1st of the new year. I plan to launch some pretty cool fireworks at midnight like you can see in the video linked above. Get away from the big city and spend some time with us at the ocean in a safe and friendly environment.
Three students are set to do their scuba diving open water certification dives and one is on board for their Drysuit Diver Specialty. While the cost of certification, specialties, equipment rentals, air fills, and food are not included, I've priced the event to beat any large city New Year's Eve party and I'll even make you a spectacular offer on certain specialties if you can make it! Save a boatload, add a specialty to your quiver while bringing in the new year in style! I have an outdoor propane heater and fireplace, but you are welcome to bring blankets, too. There is a covered area but I'll also be bringing my outdoor popup canopy to keep everyone dry if by chance the weather is a little cooler than expected.
If you can't make it for all three days, send me an email and I can find out from Frank if a shorter stay is possible. Friends and family, including non-divers and kids are welcome. Everyone can dive as much or as little as you want and there will be others to dive with if I am with students, but I will be doing as much diving as possible. If you're planning to stay with us in the dorm, no pets please. I know that they might not be comfortable at home with fireworks going off where you live, but Hoodsport will probably not be any quieter. I'll be collecting cash for the event in the next week to keep the fees from making the event more expensive for us and at the motel. I can take a credit card if needed, but it will include the service fees that accompany credit card transactions.
Thank you to the many that have signed up for my Newsletter and watched many of my videos on YouTube and I look forward to seeing and diving with everyone at the end of the month.
If you missed any of the previous Newsletters, you can find them all right here.
Happy diving and if I don't see you, have a happy, prosperous, and exciting new year!
If anyone wants to go diving, please feel free to contact me. If I can't go, I can post a note in The Dive Shop(my Invitation Only, Facebook Private Dive Club) and even e-mail others. If you want to join, just send me a note...
