Hi Divers

What a cracker couple of days we have had! We are definitley making the most of this good weather! For the long weekend we have got some mild southerlies coming in for Saturday & Sunday - Monday is looking pretty good! Looking like the heat will be sticking around too, so under the sea will be the place to be! At the moment we have around 5 meters visibility and the water is warm :)

We have plenty going on including boat charters, dive club dives, open water course and more.

Congratulations to Peter Jones on completing his Open Water Course, Hamish McKoy on completeing his Advanced Open Water, and Karl Dougherty on completing his First Aid and Rescue!


No dive club dive this Saturday. Sunday and Monday at 9.30am. No Tuesday club dive this week.

Our boys on the Diploma in Professional Scuba Instruction are halfway into their Divemaster course as well and loving it!
