Kelp Forest and diver - Wolfgang Polzer -

Pisces News: 22 July 2016

It’s great to be back home, although the Wild Coast and specifically Buccaneer’s at Cintsa has started to feel like home-away-from-home!

And it’s been a pretty wet welcome back home so far which is good for the dams and gardens, but not quite so good for motivating divers to creep out early from under their duvets… Those that have ventured out have been rewarded with some lovely diving – the guys reported 10m viz and a brisk 13 degrees on our Tuesday launches. The boat is out again this morning, so you are welcome to call the shop this afternoon for an update. Wind wise, it’s very calm this weekend, but there is a bit of Southerly swell which might make its presence felt on Saturday. Hopefully the good visibility we have now will hold up for the weekend. Hop on the boat with us, or meet at the shop at 0900 to join our free Saturday shore dive led by Jano.


If you are feeling the need for a bit of warmth, then come and join us for our trip to Madagascar in October. Airlink now flies directly to Nosy Be, from which we have a short boat ride out to Nosy Sakatia, our home for a week. Jacques Viera will guide us on some incredible reefs and it’s also the time of year for Whale sharks and Mantas, so with some luck we will have some good sightings.
