Blue Shark by Harry Stone -

Pisces News: 18 February 2016

Last week was a busy one with lots of launches and training. We also managed to get out to the deep twice, on Thursday and again on Saturday. Harry Stone took some amazing shots again, as always, one of which is below. To see more of his work, there are some photos on our Pisces FB page ( or look for Harry Stone on FB – love his work!

Last Minute Notice: Our Madagascan connection, Jacques Viera is in town for a few days and he has offered to do an impromptu talk and slide show this evening at Pisces Divers at 1830.

Jacques is the manager of the dive centre at Sakatia Lodge, a beautiful small island just off Nosy Be, Madagascar. Jacques has been diving the area for many years now and he is also an accomplished underwater photographer. If you have ever been curious about Madagascar and would like to know more, please join us this evening!

Next potential date for a pelagic shark trip – notify us if you want to be on the call list!



Our Easter Red Sea trip still has a few open places, so shout if you are teetering on the fence and I will convince you it will be a great idea to come along! Let me know!

Here are a couple of teaser photos of the stunning Sakatia Island in Madagascar. We have run several trips to Sakatia in years gone by, before flights became prohibitively expensive. Now there is an Airlink service directly to Nosy Be from Johannesburg at a more reasonable price, so we might put together a trip for later this year, depending on interest.
