Hi Divers

We have been busy making the most of the good weather and out getting plenty of divers certified. Congratulations to Krizia and Rhys Whiting and Hayley Scurron on passing their open water course. Also to Chris Stempa and Alexis Prayez on completing their advanced open water course. Craig Brady, Geoff Stevens, Geoff Infield and Chris Anderson all completed their underwater scooter course. Quazar Coz completed his sidemount and enriched air specialty courses and lastly Jake Pollock and our own SuChew are now a sidemount divers.

We also managed to get the boat out for the first charters of the season, with a successful crayfish charter to Toms Reef and a couple of wreck training charters.

We understand that for some divers, weekends are always busy dong other things. If your a shift worker or you have time free on weekdays or after work and you want to do some diving or some training, let us know....we want to go diving.

Congratulations to David Koop who won our Wellington Spearo's photo competition. Sign up to Wellington Spearos on facebook to see his winning photo.
