Our dive shop has the honor of hosting a book signing event with author and fellow diver Sy Montgomery for her latest book "The Soul of an Octopus". It will be held here at the shop at 6pm on Thursday December 3rd. Montgomery will read excerpts from her book, talk about her writing experience, answer field questions, and offer autographs for your personal copy of the book. All divers and non-divers are invited to this family friendly event!
"The Soul of an Octopus" was a finalist for the 2015 National Book Award for Nonfiction, a "New York Times" Bestseller, and Stared "Booklist" and Library Journal" Editors Spring Pick. The book explores the emotional and physical world of the octopus -a surprisingly complex, intelligent, and spirited creature- and the remarkable connections it makes with humans. Montgomery chronicles the growing scientific appreciation of the octopus, but also tells a love story. By turns funny, entertaining, touching, and profound, "The Soul of an Octopus" ultimately reveals what octopuses can teach us about the nature and consciousness of the mind.
Sy Montgomery is a naturalist, documentary scriptwriter, and author of twenty acclaimed books of nonfiction for adults and children, including the memoir "The Good Good Pig", which was a national bestseller. The recipient of numorous honors, including lifetime achievement awards from the Humane Society and New England Booksellers Association, she lives in New Hampshire with her husband, border collie, and flock of chickens.

The Open Water Diver course consists of 3 parts: Academics, Pool Training, and Open Water Sessions.
The SSI Training Materials and Online Training program are designed so that you can learn the academics at your own pace when it is convenient for you. We then go over the material with you in our classroom to ensure your understanding of it.
This is when you will learn how to apply all the cool things talked about in the classroom. Your instructor will teach you the necessary skills to be a safe diver in the real world.
Open Water Sessions:
You will complete at least 4 open water dives with us. This gives you the opportunity to experience everything you learned so far in the pool hands-on.
