Pisces News: 30th October 2014

Another southeaster is on its way but we’re determined to get our divers out and into the water! False Bay is just going to be icky so we’ve picked some great inshore sites out of Hout Bay. This past weekend our dives in the Atlantic were graced by phenomenal visibility and super cute seal interactions at Duiker Island. During the week we revisited Duiker Island for some filmmakers and found the water chilly and the seals just as happy as could be!

Yesterday evening, our annual Instructor Development Course started off with a bang! We’re enjoying all of the excited energy in the shop as the keen candidates are full of smiles and are gearing up to buckle down and study for the next few weeks. Our advice to them is to study hard, put all distractions aside and when it’s all done and dusted: celebrate!!

We have another large group of divers all the way from Russia visiting Cape Town and diving with us lots and lots! The group that was here last week just loved Cape Town diving and we’re hopeful that we can deliver the same experience.
