Hi Divers

Daylight savings is this coming weekend. We are not even going to tell you which way the clocks go as we usually get it wrong. Just kidding put the clocks forward an hour so we get lighter evenings and more after work diving.

We have South Easterly winds for the next week, which means the South Coast is out but the harbour and West Coast should be good. 

We are looking for someone to help out as a standby medic for a local pool freediving competition. The minimum qualification is a pool lifeguard. 

We currently have 6 instructor candidates working away towards becoming new dive instructors in December.

The Bach Cafe has been sold and will close shortly for a major refit.


Saturday and Sunday mornings meting at the shop at 8.30am.

Tuesday after work dives leaving the shop at 6pm weather permitting. 


Join us for a dive on the 16th of October to celebrate the Taputeranga Marine Reserves 8th birthday! All dive shops, dive clubs and certified scuba divers have been invited.

Meet at the shop at 8.15am or go direct to the dive site Princess bay for a 9.15am briefing. 10am there is a group photo of everyone in scuba. Come along and help make it a great day.

Give us a call on the day to check for postponement. Postponement date will October 30th.
