Monday 27 February….This is proving an unprecedented start to the new year

Monday 27 February….This is proving an unprecedented start to the new year, the school has been exceptionally busy throughout Jan/Feb, and bookings for March/April are filling the calendar. Its great to be able to welcome so many to this super sport. A really busy weekend, and today, means congratulations to Abigail, Sarah, Simon, Derek, and James on completing their PADI Open Water Referral course with us, and Allan on his Nitrox Speciality. Thanks to Peter n Julian for their help teaching, and for all the goodies. Another photo from our recent trip to Red Sea, incidentally, its running again in Jan 2018, hope many will join us.

Friday 24 February….Sorry, missed a few days posting

Friday 24 February….Sorry, missed a few days posting, away on a commercial diving job, leaving others teaching here. As you see from photo, our first sign is up for the new place, and in between teaching/diving we only have to move shop and equipment. It is with great pleasure to announce (some of the team are already aware), that two of our Instructors; Abby and Joe, are to tie the knot (having learned how to in dive training) and are to wed in August. Will need to polish up one of our white dive vans for then ?

Well done to Peter, Joe and Julian today at the Cove and thanks to Gary our Course Director for his help today.

Weds 15 Feb….welcome to weds night dive at the Cove

Weds 15 Feb….welcome to weds night dive at the Cove, not one for the faint hearted, and not like last weeks night dives in the Red Sea. Thought we would try out some of the new equipment launched on the market. https://youtu.be/ZxVu39LOSBY
Looking to make Wednesday night dives (1st. & 3rd of the month) a regular diving/social meet, so getting wet is optional, but retirement to the local bar compulsory, come join us !

Monday 13 February….Servicing equipment a backlog today

Monday 13 February….Servicing equipment a backlog today, and still found time to try out this brand new on the market Mares Loop regulator. An innovative design with the air feed directly into the bottom of the reg, rather than side, gave us unlimited routing and accessibility today as an independent air source. If you dive with a pony cylinder, this is a brilliant, easy to access regulator, with extra tidy hose stowing. Feeding in some more Red Sea photos from last week, will put them on an easy to access forum for all to see.

Friday 13 January….So, a good day despite Fri 13

Friday 13 January….So, a good day despite Fri 13 and nothing but a sprinkling of the white stuff here. As a reminder to Amy and David, who phoned to see if pool training was still on this morning, we do still teach in the snow as you can see from our past Navigation course at the Cove. Lots of diving still going on, and winter dives mean great viz and fewer people about. Apologies for delay of January newsletter, we are awaiting price confirmation on 2 of our trips, it will be out in next couple of days.
