South African Dive Show -

Pisces News: 14th August 2013

Carel and I head up to the National Watersports Show this weekend, where we will be at Stand B11, which is part of the Scubapro Village. For our Joburg based clients and friends – please come and visit us and have a chat!


Its back to winter after that little preview of summer we had recently! Last weekend we had a rough Friday, a nice Saturday and a very nice Sunday here in the Bay, with conditions improving as the weekend wore on. We launched again this morning and had 6-8m on the PMB and then less than that at Partridge, where the surge was quite strong as the Atlantic swell wraps around the point. We are going to let the storm run its course and we will only be launching on Sunday this weekend, by which time we hope things have settled down nicely.


We have had another couple of people book onto the trip departing 26th September. There is still space, however, so give me a call and get on-board!
