After a hiatus on the blog (vacation!)…The Coconut Tree Telegraph is back up and running.
Rainy season has been fairly kind to us this year, with a steady stream of divers and students in the shop. Weather disruptions have come and gone, and we have now moved into "Semana Santa Weather" (read: hot, no wind).''
Over the last few years we have had a number of improvements and expansions to the dive shop. Some of you will already be familiar with some of these, others have been quite recent.
In 2009, we expanded the deck, and moved the equipment rinse tanks and outside storage area. The compressor also came out of the back room (Tree's office), and moved into its own shed, which has space available for a second compressor. The tanks and the fill station are next to the compressor shed, in their own little cage.
We have recently acquired some new Cressi BCDs to add to our equipment selection. There is a comprehensive review of those BCDs and other equipment we use at Dive Gear Review. If you're looking to buy some equipment, definitely watch that space for more reviews to come.
Some time ago, we replaced the white "beer cooler" with a proper Salva Vida sponsored refrigerator. We're still keeping them cold for you…
In that same area, we also added a flatscreen TV, where we're displaying photo slideshows, video clips and feedback videos from training courses (check out Monty's helmet cam when you see him!) We also bought a Canon Powershot camera and housing, which is available for rent for USD20 per dive or USD35 for the day. Whether you have your own camera or if you rent one of ours, consider taking the Digital Underwater Photography Specialty to get the most out of your vacation photos!
And on a closing note, as it is April after all….
T-11 days (and counting) until the corporate event of the year, the Coconut Tree 10th Anniversary Extravaganza (4/20).
