Lee’s Update

It’s been a month or two since I last wrote an article for the newsletter so I though I’d better keep everyone updated in the Perth Scuba goings on…Perth Scuba Master Instructor Jodie Bond


For those of you who have been asking – Andy is going well in his new job as a Police officer. His training has been intense but he is now able to eat 9 sugar coated donuts in one sitting… Just one more to go Andy and you will be up for a promotion for sure! Seriously though – He is going well after a few pretty tough weeks of studying Law and doing the physical training and he seems to be enjoying his new challenge, good luck with that Andy.


Perth Scuba Instructor Jodie “Happy Birthday” Bond has just been awarded her Master Instructor status with PADI. This is a very big achievement and one which she really deserves. Jodie is a great instructor with great ideas and teaching skills. For anyone who has had Jodie as an instructor – I am sure you will agree with me when I say she is one of the best. Congrats Jodie!


A huge Congratulations to our new PADI Professionals who have been certified as Dive Masters in the last few weeks. You guys are going great guns and I look forward to seeing you work with our students and hopefully to see some of you take your diving to the next level – Instructor.


Hammerhead Shark, Galapagos IslandsJoey has been working hard on our new dive trip roster for upcoming international dive trips and there are some awesome trips coming up. We will be holding another dive trip info night once we have the final confirmations and have booked in the accommodation and dive operators. I can tell you though that we are heading back to Borneo, doing a live aboard in Komodo and a cool little spot in South East Sulawesi called Wakatobi.

Our Galapagos trip is now just about full – with only 2 places left and the Maldives is still open for another 2 weeks. Glenn and Steve Rudge are looking forward to taking a group of Perth Scuba crew for that one.

We head to Truk Lagoon in July with 16 wreck divers to check out the awesome wrecks and some of the group are even going on to dive Palau straight after… what a trip!


This month we commence our new mid week full time courses. For the fly in – fly outers or those who work in the hospitality industry and just can’t get nights and weekends off – We now have the course for you. The Mid week Full Time courses run from Tuesday to Thursday inclusive. These course have been well received and hopefully – we will be able to add Advanced and Rescue courses into the same format in the near future.


Cavern Courses, Cave Diving Courses and Deep courses are all on the agenda at the moment. Marc Van der Poel is busy working on the new rebreather coPerth Scuba Instructor Trainer Marc Van der Poelurses too. We hope to be releasing some pretty cool information soon on an exclusive Perth Scuba product which will have all the heads turning. If you are interested in a rebreather that does it all – and is fully computerized to give you the ultimate control and monitoring ability at a price way below it’s competitors, then look no further… All will be revealed soon!

Your buoyancy is paramount in all types of diving but none more than cave, cavern and wreck diving.

This must do course is normally not run in WA but we are bringing Liam Allen over from the east coast to run this course for us. The course is strictly limited to 4 participants and costs $995.

On Sunday the 5th of June Perth Scuba will be conducting a FREE Dry suit try dive day!

We will have a bunch of dry suits to try out for those of you who are already starting to feel the cold. Diving dry is a fantastic way to go and it doesn’t need to be expensive either. We will have some great specials on the day and Joey and I will be on hand to help you get into and out of your dry suits. Make sure you let us know in advance at the shop so we make sure we have your size J

For those of you who have never done a dry suit dive – the experience is great! And the best part… It’s free to try!!!
