Denver Divers and the Swim School of Denver is excited to be able to open under Denver's "Safer at Home" guidelines. We are open for regular store hours, but encourage you to make an appointment for any of your retail, training or travel needs.
To keep our customers and staff safe, we are offering "concierge" shopping experiences. We request all customers to wear a face mask, use hand sanitizer and allow our staff to show you around the store and handle items you are wanting to purchase or try on. We are following strict protocols to keep all our merchandise clean and free of possible contamination, including cleaning packaging and setting aside items that have been tried on for decontamination protocols as set forth by the CDC. As always, all our merchandise is ready and clean for you to try on and make sure it fits perfectly. We want to provide the best experience possible to all our customers.
If you do not want to come in, but still want a fun shopping experience, we are also offering "Virtual Shopping" experiences, where one of us will take you around the store using face-to-face meeting technology so you can browse and see what we have. We can show you everything in person and help you make decisions about what you may need for your (fingers crossed!) next upcoming trip. Or even for diving in your bathtub.
Our web store is always open and we are offering free delivery to your door within a 10 mile radius as well as curbside or in-store pick up for those that want to drop by to say hi.
In order to promote further social distancing, we are also offering by-appointment shopping. Just click on the "Book Now" button to navigate to our scuba scheduler, where you will be able to request an in-person or virtual shopping experience, travel consultation, or rental fitting.
As we move to "Safer at Home", we are thrilled to be able to offer our scuba and dive classes with very small ratios, keeping physical distancing guidelines in place. We are also following all industry guidance closely and will adjust each course to make sure our students and our instructors stay safe while learning in and out of our private pool. Our private pool will be open to only one class at any given time, and instructors will be requesting students to follow strict procedures before, during and after the class. We are still encouraging those that wish to participate in classroom only courses to take our "virtual learning" classes vs. coming in to the classrooms to learn, though we are offering both options. Our "virtual learning" specials will be running through the end of June, so check them out, and continue "diving from home" until you can get out and dive for real!
In order to promote further social distancing, we are also offering to come to your own personal outdoor pool and/or schedule any of our classes at a time convenient for you! Just navigate to our online scheduler where you will be able to request all classes as a custom scheduled course, or for us to come to your private backyard pool!
All our courses are available to sign up online or you are welcome to contact us at email@example.com or 303-399-2877 for more information. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Check out Divers Alert Network COVID-19 Resource Center for more information on diving and COVID-19.
Swim lessons will be offered on a very limited basis to only our currently enrolled swim families. We will continue to expand offerings as we have availability and it is safer to increase our private pool capacities.
Currently enrolled swim families, please be diligent in checking your email for further updates. New swim families, we look forward to having you in our program. Feel free to browse our website for more information on our program and to send inquiries to our swim staff. We look forward to seeing you in the water soon!
Current Group Trip Bookings: Ali (firstname.lastname@example.org) is available to answer questions at the shop regarding group travel. Each trip has a different cancellation policy, and most of our trips are months away, which allows us time to see what happens with coronavirus and travel. We are being as flexible as our vendors will allow, so please reach out with questions.
Future Group Trip Bookings: Most of our future trips are sold out, but if you decide to put a deposit down on a trip, please make sure you look in to travel insurance right away, as the earlier you purchase insurance, the easier it is to get "cancel for any reason" coverage. Please read on for more information about travel insurance and the coronavirus. Our cancellation policy is typically a non-refundable deposit, but if we can fill our space, we will refund all that we can recover. Also, check out our Group Travel page for updates on trips we have had to reschedule, or for new trips to closer destinations as we all wait and see what comes next with COVID-19.
Travel Insurance: Every company is different, but the basic message is that most policies will not cover you if you cancel because of the coronavirus outbreak. The ONLY insurance that will cover you if you cancel because you do not want to travel during the coronavirus outbreak is "Cancel for Any Reason" coverage - which is an additional fee on top of traditional travel insurance. You must have already purchased this prior to the outbreak and even then some companies are not covering coronavirus as a reason for cancellation.
Purchasing Travel Insurance Now: Coronavirus will still not be covered as a reason, but if you are sick and cannot travel and that is a reason covered in your insurance policy, then you are covered. Please call your travel insurance company directly to discuss what is and is not covered. Here are a few good companies to research for future travel insurance coverage:
Individual Country Travel Advisories: IATA, an international travel consortium, has compiled a list of all travel restrictions for each individual country, which is a GREAT resource for current information for each country you may be traveling to now or in the future.
