Lara on the PMB wreck - false bay - piscesdivers.co.za

Pisces News: 15th May 2014

Last weekend we had some incredible diving on Saturday with unbelievably warm water and superb viz. I saw some great pics that were posted of dives to Whittle and the General Botha on Sunday, which also looked amazing. We launched yesterday to the PMB and Pyramid and the conditions were also superb. Carel snapped DMT Lara enjoying the 16 degree conditions on the PMB below…

Unfortunately, all good things have to come to an end and there is a nasty SE which smacks the peninsula from Saturdaymorning, so we are going to launch tomorrow while it is still going to be good and then give Saturday and Sunday a rest. If you can slip away from work or studies, tomorrow will be the best bet for the next while!

Sardine Run:

We have some spaces for our Sardine Run trip this year – please contact me for more details. We have moved our dates from the first week of June to the third week due to a couple of last-minute cancellations and some shuffling around: Sunday 15th to Saturday 21st June. This includes a public holiday on the 16th, so you only need to take four days of leave!! Come and see thousands of magnificent gannets doing what they do best – hunting sardines!
