Hello dive community!

We have an exciting summer planned here at Bottoms Up Scuba Indy! We are offering a variety of classes – everything from Open Water to Divemaster to specialty courses. If you are new to diving and wish to become certified, there are a few different options for the Open Water course. The locations alternate between Thatcher Park in Indianapolis, Jordan YMCA in Martinsville, and our own pool in Center Grove. When looking at the class listings, simply pick the dates and locations that will be most convenient for you. There is also an option to do private lessons for Open Water; if you’re feeling nervous or uncomfortable about diving, this may be the best option as it allows much more one-on-one time with an instructor. If you are already certified and wanting to expand your diving certifications, there will be Advanced Open Water classes beginning May 30 and July 27. The check out dives for this course will be completed at both Hidden Paradise Quarry in St. Paul, Indiana and Gilboa Quarry in Ohio. Rescue Diver courses are beginning June 4 and August 6 at Thatcher Park, Indianapolis. While this course is a bit more challenging, it is worthwhile in the useful and potentially lifesaving skills you will learn. For someone who is interested in becoming a PADI professional, the first step is beginning the Divemaster course. This is a 6 day long class that we are offering beginning June 18 and August 20. Finally, the class I’m most excited about – Night Diver – will take place August 9 at Hidden Paradise Quarry. Because what’s better than specialty certifications? Except swimming with sea turtles, of course. If you have any additional questions about the summer courses, feel free to contact instructor Mike Ellis at 317-417-7323. We hope to see you on some dives this summer!

Have a great week!
