Perth Scuba Update

Written by Lee Johnson

What a month!PADI Open Water students and Perth Scuba Instructor

February has once again proven to be a big month for Perth Scuba and of course our fantastic crew… You!

So far only 3 weeks into the month we have had so much happening. Andy came back from Donut World to rejoin the crew. Welcome back Andy – Great to have you back! Thanks to Mike who looked after the course side of things while Andy was away and did a great job. We have a couple of new Instructors who have come through the ranks and are working already (Andy doesn’t waste any time in cracking the whip on the newbies). Welcome to the crew Rob, Terry and Simon. Courses have been pretty full on for the crew and we are seeing a lot of new divers coming through and I have to say – there have been some really good divers coming out of the courses. There is definitely future Dive Master & Instructors amongst them.

There has been a heap of club dives going on and Lindsay (or awesome guru DM) has been getting good numbers on all of the club dives. Even the night dives are becoming more popular as we now have a schedule of dives and dive sites planned for the upcoming months. Thanks to Lindsay – there are now no reasons at all to miss that dive you always wanted to do – or see a whole lot of new dive sites that the guys have been discovering lately. Our other Guru DM Greg Thomms has found where the Weedy Sea Dragons have been hiding out and for the photographers who want to get the holy grail of sea horses – This is the dive for you! These little guys are great to photograph and quite difficult to find in Perth waters so next time Greg is taking the club dive – mention to him that you would like to see his secret stash of Weedies.

CAVE DIVE TRIPWeedy Sea Dragon by Johanna Pool

Marc, Josh, Ryan and Drew are back now from their Cave Diving trip to Mt Gambier where they completed their side mount and level 1 Cave Diver Course. They had a fantastic time and Marc managed to get a whole bunch of photos while they were there. The guys haven’t said a whole lot about the trip yet as they are waiting for Marc’s article in next week’s newsletter. We look forward to reading all about the trip then. If you are interested, Perth Scuba will be running the next Cavern Diver Course in the lead up to our next Mt Gambier Cave Diver Course in March. If you are keen to take your diving to a whole new level and be one of the very few who get to see what lies under the land, contact the store and we’ll put you on track to becoming a Cave / Cavern Diver. You will need this certification to be able to join Marc and the crew on out Nullarbor Desert Cave Diving trip next year. What are you waiting for??

BUSSELTON JETTY DIVEBusselton Jetty by Johanna Pool

Tomorrow 40 Perth Scuba Clubbies will be heading to Busselton to dive the “Busso Jetty” and check out what has been happening down there over the last year or so. After hearing scary stories of the jetty having a lot of its marine life stripped off the pylons that were recently replaced, we were happy to hear that there are still some areas of the jetty that are in their original state. We havent told the crew yet but there are going to be some cool prizes for the best 3 photos taken on the day. Guru DM Lindsay will be the judge and entries need to be in by Monday night! Any bribes paid to Lindsay will be well appreciated however unfortunately won’t guarantee a prize J


On March the 22nd we are very lucky to have Frank Taylor (owner operator) of Kokoda Trek & Tours who will be presenting to Perth Scuba clubbies interested in walking the Kokoda Trail. Naturally we will be putting on a few drinks and nibblies for those who are interested in joining us on one of the most famous challenges known around the world. The great history of this trek is a specialty of Franks and he is sure to make the information night very interesting. Remember to mark this one in your calendar and we will be giving you more information as the evening gets a bit closer. Make sure you write down all of the questions you may have too. Frank will be able to answer them all. Mike will be leading this Trek which is limited to 10 places.


Its hard to believe but we are less than 3 months away from Perth Scuba’s biggest ever dive trip… Borneo 2012. We have 44 Perth Scuba Crew heading to Borneo to take over Mabul Island and Sipadan for 10 days! With this being tour leaders Lee & Joey’s 5th visit to Borneo Divers, they still love the place and rank it in their top 3 dive destinations of the world for diving.

We have some really cool stuff planned for everyone going. This WILL be a trip that everyone will be talking about for years to come. If you are yet to book onto one of our awesome dive trips, come in and see us! With 4 to 5 trips being run every year and trips booked right up to 2013, there’s no reason why you can’t be jet setting around the world with your dive gear to dive the best dive sites in the world!

We do trips to suit any budget. AND even if you can’t join us on one of our trips, Perth Scuba can arrange any dive trip you might want to do. Give us a call!
