Hi Divers

The diving has been fantastic this week and looks like it will continue throughout the weekend and into next week. The visibility out front of the shop is around 8 meters at the moment and there is no swell.

Perfect timing as we are flat out this weekend with open water and advanced courses as well as boat charters.

After 14 years with the current owners, the Bach Cafe has sold and will close after the weekend. The new owners will be doing a total refit and re-opening in November. 


Saturday and Sunday meeting at the shop at 8.30am. Tuesday after work dive leaving the shop at 6pm.

We are looking at heading down to quiz night at the Brew Bar in Island Bay in a few weeks time.. On a Wednesday night at 7pm with 4 to 6 people per table. Let us know if you are keen to come along and we will see if we can book a few tables.
