Hi Divers,

The conditions this week have been just as good as last week if not better! Mermaids Kitchen kept a solid 8m of visibility and we even got a few night dives in on the Yung Pen. We have been making the most of it diving every day, all day! 

The forecast for the weekend is a bit back and forth. We have got NW winds predicted with a 2m southerly swell coming in for Saturday and dropping back down for Sunday. Looks like we may get to do a harbour and south coast dive for the club!

Hi Divers

Well it has been a fresh week in the capital as I am sure you are all well aware. Not that this would affect the 20 lucky divers swimming with whales in Tonga…

The forecast for the weekend shows northerly winds, with a slight southerly on Saturday evening, returning to a northerly on Sunday morning. Fingers crossed we might be able to get out diving on the South Coast.

Hi Divers,

Aqualung have notified us that a small number of bcd's with Powerline inflators have been continuing to inflate after the button is released during a dive.

After thorough investigation and testing, Aqualung have identified the cause to be the bezel surrounding the button being overtightened.
