Our trips here are so popular that this past March we ended up adding two additional trips for a total of three escorted group trips aboard the Tropic Dancer and Palau Aggressor II. We dive Ulong Channel, Blue Corner, Big Drop-off, German Channel, Peleliu and many more. […]

Magical Memories from Palau. Divers encountered playful mantas on all three Rec Diving group trips to Palau. Amazing!

The check-out dive at German Channel set the stage for the big animal action for the week. Mantas greeted us at a cleaning station and a good sized octopus put on a show. After that the large schools of fish became the norm during the week. Mackerel, barracuda, giant trevally, jacks, unicorn fish, surgeon fish – one school bigger than […]

The lakes are frozen over, its time to dive!!!!!

During the winter months here in Michigan many divers think of warm diving destinations as their only option to get wet. For those who are ready to dress for the occasion there is another option, Ice Diving!!!!! Last year we were denied the opportunity to engage in this very different yet cool (literally) for of diving. A special certification is required to engage in Ice Diving as the overhead environment demands additional safe measures. If you're already a certified Ice Diver or looking to take the class and join on in this great experience call the store at 248-549-0303 today and get your name added to the list. We'll be finalizing our plans shortly and contacting those who are interested with all the details.

The Sola Dive Light, the least expensive light you’ll ever own

Since their release in February of this year, these little powerhouses have been one of the most talked about items here at Rec Diving. People love the Solas because of their light weight and compact size, but they sometimes shy away from these beauties when they compare them pricewise to the other LED lights. While they might cost a little more at the register, I’m going to tell you how the Solas will save you more than three times their cost in the long run.
