Hi Divers

We would like to wish all of our customers a safe and happy Christmas! Thank you all for your support this year!

Seems like we are still in a funny weather pattern at the moment, we have had big northerly winds which are supposed to drop today and turn southerly with a 2m southerly swell building as well. We’ve still been out in the reserve this week, and although the visibility hasn’t been the greatest there has been heaps of fish life and action underwater.

Congratulations to our newest Open Water divers Mila, Nikki, Simon, and Jhana, Ben, Max, and Amelia!

Congratulations to Gareth and Shannen on completing their Advanced course!

Congratulations to Bonnie and Rich who completed their Enriched Air Specialty and David T, David P, and Nahyara who completed their Sidemount Specialty!

Our December specials are still on, but the end of the month is approaching and the stock is starting to run quite low!
