Adventure Sports Unlimited (ASU) is an aquatics center that teaches people the fun to play in water. We bring people together, teach them to the best of their abilities, outfit them with gear to fit their potential, arrange adventures to use their new skills, and eat well. It seems only appropriate that when you have a bunch of adventure enthusiasts together at an exotic aquatic environment, after a day of SCUBA diving, that a bit of seafood foraging will result in a wonderful gourmet meal to toast the day.
The essence of our plot is unrelenting fun and through this joy we will impart superior skills and safety. The ASU facility has a tropically heated training pool with hot tub, retail shop to serve your swimming and dive needs, classroom, and loaded it with water toys for people to play with. For 38 years,we have been successfully teaching the joys of being in water through the recreational sport of SCUBA for all ages and Adventure Sports Swim School. Additionally we offer outstanding travel adventures. Find your next adventure through Adventure Sports Unlimited. Family Offerings Seafood Foraging & Kelp Pickling

Our Jr. Trainer program is for children ages 9-16 (as young as 7 if they participate with a parent) who are serious in their interest of animal care and training. This allows people to experience what it’s really like to work with sea lions, not just an interaction program like other places may offer (although it’s still fun and exciting!).
Jr. Trainers receive personalized attention designed to give them a feel for what it’s like to actually care for, work with, and train sea lions. They learn animal care, feeding, husbandry skills, and much more!
Includes a sea lion kiss with a photo for you to keep

CAMP HAMMER FIRE UPDATE
We’ve heard from many of you who would like to volunteer with cleanup efforts at Camp Hammer! Thank you for your love of camp and desire to serve! At the moment we are finalizing a work plan that is focused on erosion control and containing debris from the burned structures. This will involve installing straw waddles, silt fences and sand bags. However, before we can perform the work we need to make sure it can be done safely–especially when it comes to our volunteers.
We will be providing updates and additional details once we have finalized the work plan. To receive these updates directly please email email@example.com.
Thanks again and God Bless!

Our Critter Camp provides fun learning experiences in different week-long sessions for 1st – 3rd graders and 4th – 6th graders, held Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Campers meet guest speakers from animal welfare professions and get to know a wide variety of animals.
There are behind the scenes shelter tours and animal-themed arts and crafts projects, including art that helps showcase pets waiting to be adopted.
