Our Hales Corners Store is Moving!

We are in the process of moving our Hales Corners store to a new location….just 4 blocks north of the old store, still on Highway 100 in Hales Corners. The new address is 5300 S. 108th St. and the phone is still 414-529-DIVE (3483). Stop in to the new location to see what’s new!


Henderson Thermaxx Wetsuits now in stock!

Thermaxx, the newest wetsuit technology from Henderson, the leader in exposure suits is now in stock! What makes Thermaxx suits different?

  • Henderson utilizes a proprietary neoprene material for the core of these suits. It has superior memory in a microcell structure, which maintain the suit’s thickness and warmth over many years of service
  • The outer layer is a special synthetic nylon/Lycra blend, providing 250% stretch yet resists pilling, common to other “super stretch” suits
  • Using a very special process, Titanium powder is combined with a special ultra stretch adhesive material to create an external titanium thermal barrier between the nylon fabric laminate and the neoprene core.
  • Fire Fleece lining is an ultra high stretch, low pile, synthetic fleece which is incredibly soft, and comfortable. Its luxurious feel and plush comfort will add a new dimension to your diving experience. Fire Fleece minimizes water transfer throughout the wetsuit resulting in a warmer and more comfortable dive adventure.
  • These new suits are in stock at Delafield and Menomonee Falls now…stop in before your next diving adventure to try one on!

Last Pearl Lake Excursion of 2014! Saturday, October 11

All good things must come to an end…and the 2014 season at Pearl Lake ends the weekend of Oct 11.
So why not join us for a fun day of diving down at Pearl Lake?
The dives at Pearl Lake are meant for all levels of divers, especially new divers!
Here is how the outing works:

We meet at the Menomonee Falls store around 7:30am, get set for any rental gear needed, then head to the lake at 8am. We usually arrive at Pearl about 9:30 or so, check in, pay for our Pearl Lake dive permits, and select a spot for the first dive or two. After our first couple of dives, we break out the grill(s) and have lunch (we will supply the brats and buns). After lunch, we do one or two more dives, at the same dive site, or at another site located around the lake. We typically get back to the store around 5pm. If you would prefer to just meet at the lake, that’s OK, just let us know. Be aware, though that we do not transport any rental gear to and from the lake.
The cost of these outings is nothing more than $20 for the Pearl Lake Dive Permit, any rental gear, and your own side dish and beverages for the day. Air fills are available at the lake. The store provides the grill, brats, buns, and condiments.
So, who’s in? Give us a call at the Menomonee Falls store 262-251-8283 to sign up.
