Updated News from Portofino’s Diveshop by Ecologic Divers:

Posted on 08 Sep, 2009 in the Portofino News Category. No comments

September is here on Ambergris Caye and knock on wood we have not seen any threat of a major storm or Hurricane. Maybe the storm guru’s are going to be right in their predictions that this year will be a low season for any major storm.
The water temp as of today is 86 degrees and the sky is sunny which makes for a great day of diving.
We have a lot of news in this issue, first of all; we have purchased our own NITROX system and rebuilt the compressor.   PADI has started the Nitrox online course to make it easier for all divers to get certified and a NITROX user. (see below).  Ecologic Divers is going to sponsor trips to different areas in the world. so you can join your favorite Divemaster or Instructor and dive some place new.
IDC, DATES SET FOR Nov. 13th Staff  Nov. 15 for the Instructor development class.
We apreciate all who have dove with us and PLEASE tell your friends to come visit us!!!

PADI  introduces Nitrox  and Advanced Open Water Online courses:
You asked for it, now we have it. You can get certified as a Nitrox user at the comfort of your own home or complete all the Advanced OW book work before you come to the dive center.
The course follows the same model as the PADI Open Water Diver Course Online, divers must affiliate with a PADI Dive Center or Resort during registration and complete the knowledge development online – including a new version of the PADI Enriched Air Diver exam. Participants will also have access to an electronic version of the revised Enriched Air Diver Manual both during and after the course. Divers will use a computer to plan (or execute)  enriched air dives within no stop limits, maximum depth and oxygen exposure limits established by the instructor.
Attention Attention Attention:
Ecologic DIVERS is starting to dive the Blue hole in small groups 4 to 8 people only.

We decided to introduce small group diving  to this popular dive site.  Like many other dive centers we leave early in the morning and go straight to the Blue hole on our 33′ SEA RAY. Some divers just don’t like large dive groups so that was our motivation for this tour.  As many of you know we keep our groups to 6 or less this will be another extension of what we offer.

Nikki in Belize – 4 Days in San Ignacio!

July 13th 2009: Going to the mainland…. we went for 4 days to San Ignacio, and stayed at a very beautiful Resort.
There I got my first signature massage in a Spa where they used Hot Stones… I never felt so relaxed before.
They also have a wonderful garden with lots of fruit trees, flowers and they grow their own vegetables. The restaurant was amazing.
On the last day, I had a small visitor at my front door and I wonder how he will look when he is a butterfly…
