Pisces News: 28th August 2014

It has been a cold and wet week so far with the latest cold front that moving through Cape Town. It has certainly reminded us that we are still in winter. Fortunately things are looking good for the weekend ahead as the wind and rain backs down leaving us with sunny conditions and a taste of what is to come this summer. Conditions are looking good for False Bay with flat calm conditions on the weather forecast. Friday we are going to explore a bit around D-Frame, so if you are looking for something new and interesting then please call us to book your spot.

Mike and Wendy represented Cape Town diving well this week by attending the PADI Business Academy in Umkomaas. They kept us up-to-date on their journey there and will continue to do so on the way back. You can look on any of our social media pages to see what’s happening with them as they inch back towards the Cape. We’d like to announce that we now have Instagram so be sure to follow us! Our handle is piscesdivers_ct – we’ve Instagramed some great snaps from the visit to KZN!
