Whittle Rock False Bay - piscesdivers.co.za

Pisces News: 26 May 2016

Last weekend was again an epic weekend of diving in False Bay. Can this coming weekend make it three in a row? We had lovely dives on both days last weekend and we also ventured off-shore on Saturday for a successful pelagic shark trip.

We have very little wind in our immediate future, with a bit of a NW on Sunday afternoon, so I am expecting tomorrowand Saturday to remain excellent. Thanks to Rory Bruins who joined us out at Whittle last weekend and grabbed some great shots. Graeme has found a new piece of reef not too far from Atlantis which we are going to go and explore on Saturday at 0900 if you feel like something new. Depth range on the new piece of reef is between 14m and 30m with some promising looking topography.

 

Georgina Jones ran a well-attended Klipvis Masterclass at Pisces last Saturday and we are chatting about some future workshops which will be published soon.

We will be supporting a Kalk Bay Harbour clean-up on Saturday 4th June – more details in next week’s newsletter. We also have a free try-dive event at Pisces on Youth Day – 16th June. Please send your non-diving friends along!

Richard Walsh will be leading our free shore dive this Saturday at 0900 – please feel free to join him, and RSVP with the shop so we have an idea of who will be joining us!
