Gasflame on Fire! - piscesdivers.co.za

Pisces News: 8th January 2015

A very happy new year to our large family of divers, friends and family! We hope that 2015 is filled with brilliant dives and stacks of happy memories for you all. We certainly have an exciting year to share with you and some very big surprises in store!

 

Though the water has been green and we’ve had less than desirable visibility to contend with these past few weeks, we’ve had numerous launches and our Instructors have been busy with training up many new Open Water divers.  We expect fair weather conditions through the weekend – not much of a change from the conditions at the moment. Divers are reporting that the water is warm and at Atlantis Reef yesterday, divers enjoyed 4 to 5-metres of visibility, a marked improvement from previous days.
