Pisces News: 6th February 2014

The second Cape Town Dive Festival is just over the horizon and bookings are now open! Please visit the website at www.ctdf.co.za and start deciding which launches you would like to join – I am predicting that spaces for early launches will start filling up quite quickly, so as with everything in life, the early bird will get the worm. This year we have a new venue for the event – Seaforth Beach – which for many reasons will make this year’s event better than the first one. There will also be DSD’s and refresher dives happening off the beach and nearby Navy pool, much easier parking arrangements, better toilets and changing facilities all of which we hope will combine to making the event even more of a success than the first one.

We scrubbed our Wednesday launches this week due to strong wind and a 4m swell on the Atlantic side. Tomorrow we have a steady NW and then virtually no wind over the weekend so the Bay should be very nice indeed.

We have 12 people confirmed for the Nudibranch talk by Georgina Jones this evening at 1800, so there is a space for a couple more if you would like to join us. The cost of the workshop is R200.

The new Pisces Divers retro-look. We are also doing our boat dives off an old whaler which we row out to the dive sites. A bit slower, but hey, no petrol used at all!

Permits:

Please make sure you have your current permit to dive in an MPA with you as well as some form of identification when you arrive for a dive with us. We also have temporary permits available at the shop at R45 for a month.
