The weather is looking good but the problem is the wind and the swell, there has been a lot of swell around over the last few days and with the wind this has affected all the areas for safety and visibility. Most areas across the region will now have limited visibility and hard conditions with the surge and swell

We are back in the pool again on Saturday 11th August with the PADI Open Water Scuba Diver course run on a day long session. Students will be with us from all over the country to complete the PADI Open Water Diver Referral course.
