Hi Divers

We have northerly winds predicted for the remainder of the week,so the visibility should be great for diving this weekend. We have a large open water course happening, so note the later time for dive club dives.

Congratulations to Kathryn Nevatt who won the womens indoor freediving nationals, breaking her own record with a static breathold time of 7 minutes 45 seconds. This event is proudly sponsored by Dive Wellington and Beuchat. Local diver Guy Brew took out the mens competition.

Hi Divers

We had lots of happy divers after all the great diving last weekend. Both of our Labour weekend trips went well, diving the wreck of the Lermontov and the Canterbury in Northland. We had a busy weekend here as well, with 18 divers on Sundays dive club dive.

Last night we had a great night out at the Brewed Bar Island Bay with a trivia quiz night. 15 of us competed with varying levels of success. Congrats to Chris Anderson who won the knock out round.

Hi Divers

We have a brief southerly due on Friday before it switches back to a northerly, so the South Coast should be good for diving by Sunday. The conditions have been great all week, with 10 meters visibilty.

We have loads of divers heading away for dive adventures this long weekend. Chris is taking a group to The Malborough Sounds to dive the wreck of The Lermontov and Kelly is taking a group to Northland, to dive the wreck of the Canterbury. Have a fantastic weekend guys.

Hi Divers

Congratulations to our new open water divers Tess keough, Dhaxna Sothieson and Michael Godfrey.

The weather looks like it is going to turn Southerly on Saturday, which may rule the South Coast out for diving this weekend. We have made the most of the good condions during the week though and have been diving every day. We often have shore dives happening during the weekdays, if you are available and want to join us, give us a call. We also run courses during week days.

Hi Divers

We have been busy making the most of the good weather and out getting plenty of divers certified. Congratulations to Krizia and Rhys Whiting and Hayley Scurron on passing their open water course. Also to Chris Stempa and Alexis Prayez on completing their advanced open water course. Craig Brady, Geoff Stevens, Geoff Infield and Chris Anderson all completed their underwater scooter course. Quazar Coz completed his sidemount and enriched air specialty courses and lastly Jake Pollock and our own SuChew are now a sidemount divers.

Hi Divers

The diving has been fantastic this week and looks like it will continue throughout the weekend and into next week. The visibility out front of the shop is around 8 meters at the moment and there is no swell.

Perfect timing as we are flat out this weekend with open water and advanced courses as well as boat charters.

After 14 years with the current owners, the Bach Cafe has sold and will close after the weekend. The new owners will be doing a total refit and re-opening in November. 

DIVE CLUB DIVES

Hi Divers

Daylight savings is this coming weekend. We are not even going to tell you which way the clocks go as we usually get it wrong. Just kidding put the clocks forward an hour so we get lighter evenings and more after work diving.

We have South Easterly winds for the next week, which means the South Coast is out but the harbour and West Coast should be good. 

We are looking for someone to help out as a standby medic for a local pool freediving competition. The minimum qualification is a pool lifeguard. 

Dive News: Wed 14 Sep 2016

Hi Divers

We are all busy gearing up for a big summer. Stocking the shop, planning courses, boat charters and trips away.

We have northerly winds for this weekend, so the South Coast should be good for a dive.

Daylight savings starts next weekend so keep an eye out for more after work dives.

We have 2 spots available on our Truk Lagoon trip, check out the details below on the trip of a lifetime. We also have 2 spots available on our Northland trip next month.

SOUTH COAST CLEAN UP this Saturday
