Lee’s Update!

Well the weather hasn’t really been ideal for diving lately. Great hot days but probably one of the worst summers I can recall in regards to swell and wind. Still – we have been able to get a few dives in even if we Lee at Perth Scuba's Australia Day Partycant seem to get the right mix for our Rotto night dive. I think we’ve had to reschedule 3 times now and I do apologise to those who have been called and told it’s off again. Fingers crossed for next week.

Things around the shop have been busy. Andy and the boys and girls have been pretty full on since the start of the season and I’m sure everyone who has done a course recently would agree. Gary has just started an Instructor Development Course with 5 new candidates ready to take on the world of immortality. We wish you all the best of luck and look forward to having celebratory drinks with you in a couple of weeks.

Our Dunsborough weekender went well (apart from the cyclone – which prompted the skipper and crew to cancel the second days dives). Still better safe than sorry and I am sure the guys will enjoy their dives at Rottnest Island instead.

The next weekender is in Albany so if you ever wanted to dive with Seals, or dive a wreck a third bigger than the HMAS Swan – then this trip is for you! For only $400 for club members – including 4 boat dives, accommodation and meals, the Albany weekenders always fill fast so while the weather is warm and the water temperature is as warm as it gets in Albany – now is the time to book. We will be running a Deep diver specialty course and possibly an advanced course. If anyone would like to try out one of our hire Twin Sets, please let us know. Double the range is a great way to go!

Clown fish & anemone at the Komodo Islands by Johanna PoolKomodo Adventure episode V is now out. Just click on the link to watch the latest antics of the crew who went last year. We will be running a trip to Komodo in 2012 for those who are interested. The show gives you a good idea of what you can expect to see there… truly amazing!!!

Joey has been busy finalizing the new photography section at Perth Scuba. For those who are yet to come and see the range and check out the image library, come on in. We are working on some really cool stuff for everyone at the moment. The coffee machine is almost here so those lazy afternoons can now be spent kicking back at the shop in our cool buddy lounge. (No not you Nat!).

Marc van der Poel has just recently completed another group of very enthusiastic Technical Divers – We had a full crew again and the guys looked to have a great time.Perth Scuba TDI Advanced Nitrox & Deco Procedures Course

We are having a Tech Diving Info Night soon. Alex Boulton from PADI will be coming to do a presentation and to answer any questions you may have about technical diving.

Alex designed the PADI Rec Tec courses as they are today. The courses are designed to make the transition from recreational diving to Technical diving with ease. Don’t be scared of Technical Diving because it sounds hard – It’s great fun and the PADI tec 40 and 45 are a great way to start without pushing your diving to the limits. The courses are fun and very rewarding.

Still on Tek diving, Oz Tek is on the weekend of the 13th and 14th of March this year in Sydney. Joey and I will be taking up Scubapro’s generous invitation to join them and we look forward to meeting some great people and hopefully some new suppliers while we are there who can fill in any gaps in our current range. If you are interested in joining us for the weekend, drop us a line or call the shop.

Well – that’s it from me for this week. I hope you all get a dive in soon! Joey and I have been taking the club dives of late and there has been an excellent turn out for the dives. Fingers crossed this week we will be aiming to check out Point Peron.

Take Care, Keep Diving and Dive Safe.
