August 06 Newsletter
Okay, okay we've been a bit slack with the newsletters! Sorry
folks, if only you lot would stop diving and give us here at Dolphin
Scuba a chance to get on with it!!!
The Exmouth trip was great success. The water was lovely and warm,
the marine life was out in force. The Navy Pier dives were fantastic,
with loads of super-sized fish swimming about. No one got banned
from coming back next year either, an additional bonus.
The conditions up North are very good at the moment. We've got
some great 3mm Abyss steamers (with hood!) for sale at $120 (rrp
$285). This is great value and they're the perfect suit for warm
water diving or paddling.
in Albany went swimmingly in June. The highlight of the trip was
not the Perth wreck but the ultra-playful sealions. It was just
amazing to swim and play around with them in the kelp.
to Rodney Gibbs, Matt Harvey and Sam Pearce for becoming PADI Instructors.
They all did exceptionally well during the PADI IE (Instructor Exam).
More pats on the back to Sean Saunders, Barry Scriven and Bruce
Hartley for reaching the dizzy heights of PADI Divemaster. Well
done to you all.
The trip to Cocos (Keeling) was fantastic. The group had a great
time above and below the water. There were mantas, dolphins, turtles
and lots of sharks along with some spectacular corals and reef fishes.
A HUGE thank you to Dieter and Karen from Cocos Dive for looking
after us all so well. If you're thinking about Truk Lagoon next
year, you'd better be quick as spaces are selling out fast. Truk
