It's Christmas !!!!

are out there. If you haven't picked up your licence yet, we've
got applications in the shop. Check out our special "Cray Kit"
only $85 includes catch bag, loop and cray gauge.

Callum's first group of technical divers is half-way through their
TDI Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures course. Getting
to grips with multiple cylinders and decompression stops can be

Patrick all the best. If you want to see examples of facial twitching
then just ask them about lift bags!!
