We will be closed Friday and Sunday, but will open for the club dive Sunday morning.

April 22nd is international Earth day.

Since our oceans cover 71% of Earth we would like to use this day to help clean up our ocean.

As scuba divers we have a special love for the ocean and all the marine life in it which gives us plenty of reasons to help protect it. If you like to get involved come and help us make Freyberg Beach free from marine debris!

Meet at the shop 8.00am or if you have all your own gear meet us at Freyberg beach Contact the shop to sign up! 

For divers that would like to get more involved in ‘dive against debris’ dives,  we are offering a specialty course. This Dive against Debris specialty course is designed by Project Aware, a non-government organisation to help protect our aquatic world. A theory evening is scheduled for Thursday 20 April and will include knowledge about our Earth’s marine debris problem, different types of marine debris, how to recover these without harming the environment and aquatic life, and will also teach you how to report the marine debris data to the Project Aware site where it will be used for scientific research. The practical part of this course will be the dive on Earth Day to collect marine debris and record and report this data. For completing this course you’ll get a PADI Dive against Debris Specialty certification which will count towards your Master Scuba Diver rating. Course price is just $75 for the certification. Club prices for hiring scuba gear.

Many more marine debris dives are in our future planning, so this course would give you great knowledge and skills to help us fight our oceans debris problem! For more information about the course or if you would like to sign up contact the shop.

Enjoy the long weekend, despite the weather.
