PADI Open Water, Advanced and Specialty Classes are taught all year. Classes are small and you will have fun while you learn to dive safely. Call or stop in today to get started.
In 1979 Jerry and Sandy Guyer bought the dive store and have continued the tradition of promoting the sport of scuba diving. Additional instructors Bob Schaefer and Mike Timbers joined the teaching staff. With the help of Gil Kasmeric we set up our first dive charter boat the "GJ Venture" and started running shipwreck charters to the half dozen known shipwrecks in the Milwaukee area. After 4 years we moved up to the "Lender" a Coast Guard certified small passenger vessel. Now we could accommodate dive groups up to 26 divers at a time to visit the Milwaukee area shipwrecks. To meet the growing interest in shipwreck diving several side scanning sonar systems were purchased to find more shipwrecks. Now after 20 years of side scanning in the Milwaukee area I have 60 dive sites.
