Hey guys!

Summer is here! Well almost… but the weather is finally getting better.Perth Scuba Rottnest Island Night Dive by Johanna Pool

We had a night dive at Rotto on Wednesday and the water was flat and not a breath of wind made the dive conditions perfect!

Cray season is officially open until the 30th of June and the word is – they are thick in Mandurah at Timms Thicket so given another week, we will be finding them all around Perth in the shallows. Crystal Palace at Rotto (for those of you who have those floaty things with motors on the back) is a great place for Crays at the moment and outside the sanctuary area of Parker Point along the ridge is bringing out some good sized ones. Remember a lot of Crays will be in berry at the moment so be careful catching them and if they are in berry – make sure you put them back where you found them.

Marc has been busy with Tek Courses – Congrats to everyone who has recently passed their Tec 40 / Tec 45 and Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures courses over the last few weeks. A special mention goes out to Angela Marshal on completing her course. Well Done Angela – you showed them!!! Poor Angela’s twin set was bigger than her but she soldiered on to meet all the requirements and show the boys how it’s done.

Marc has also been busy lining up Cavern Courses and Cave Diving Courses so that we can qualify everyone before the 2013 Mexico Trip. – The Cave Course is great value and has to be done if you are into adventure adrenalin sports!

Marc with his Advanced Nitrox & Deco Procedures CourseMike’s PNG trip is now officially open – Mike did a presentation night and showed us all why PNG is the place to be – Looks great Mike – Wish I could go too! The trip flyer can be found on our website CLICK HERE for more info.

The details of our AWESOME Perth Scuba Christmas party are finally out – We decided not to do a river cruise this year due to the limited numbers we have at our party. Join the Perth Scuba Crew for a night of fun, drinking and Joey Shots – The night is sure to be one to remember – if you can!

Perth Scuba is gearing up for the 2012 Perth Scuba Master Scuba Diver Challenge.

Go Pro – Goes nuts!Go Pro Hero Video Camera

I am sure you’ve all heard of the new craze? Go Pro Cameras – Actually Perth Scuba were the first in Perth to have these great little guys for sale over 12 months ago. It took the rest of Perth and Australia a while to catch on – but now that they have – they are huge! These cameras fit in the palm of your hand and have hundreds of applications. They are a mini Camera which takes stills or Hi Def Video and it comes with a housing which is rated to 50m. It doesn’t stop there though – The cameras have a whole bunch of accessories which make your camera – a bumper cam – if you want to film cruising around the streets, a helmet cam for bike riders, trail / motorbike riders, kayakers, jet skiers, parachuters and of course we love them for diving! There is even a 3D version which incorporates 2 cameras and the software to join the 2 images to make your own 3D movies! Check out the Go Pro Cameras and full range of accessories at Perth Scuba .

Check out the video from Go Prowhere you can see just a few of the applications you can use them.

These are a great Chistmas gift idea for the person who has everything… almost – or the hard to buy for diver – Go Pro –
