Pisces News: 10th April 2014

We had a busy weekend with training last weekend: On Saturday Carel filled up the boat with students and we ran normal launches on Sunday, where the surge and chop had died down somewhat. This whole week has been a great week to be in Cape Town – today’s high is 31 degrees! The boat is out at the moment and we will be out again tomorrow. There is virtually no wind or swell forecast until next Tuesday at least and we all know Cape Town traditionally rains over Easter, so come and get it while the going is good!

The bookings for the Cape Town Dive Fest are sitting at around 55% which is looking good! If you have not already done so, surf over to www.ctdf.co.za and get yourself on a boat pronto!

We have been taking bookings for our Sardine Run trip running in the first week of June out of East London. See our travel page for more info. www.piscesdivers.co.za/travel

On the subject of travel we are packing our bags and heading off to the Red Sea next Wednesday for ten days for a trip to the South. Can’t wait!
