Weather through the weekend looks awesome for the South Coast, lets make the most of it while we can and get in the water! Should stay warm through the weekend as well with that southerly staying away!! Yesterday we had 7m visibility out the front of the shop and should only get better by the weekend! Sunday also marks the end of Scallop season, fortunately the weather looks good for the harbour too!

Massive congratulations to our group of girls from St Caths; Zoe Williams, Kathryn Prince, Bella Churchward-Woods and Damien for completing their Open Water Course on Monday! Hopefully see you in the water again very soon! Also to our five new Advanced Open Water divers; Emma Duncan, Emma MacDonald, Sebastien Lambert, David Picarda, and Sirius Bussion, even more of the ocean to explore now!!
