Its been a brilliant start to year so far. At the beginning of January 6 of our instructors qualified as IDC STAFF INSTRUCTORS. A great achievement and we now have a total of 8 Staff Instructors working with us, which means we will be planning IDC’s very soon… watch this space! Also in January we had an amazing trip to the Maldives, we were diving amongst Sharks & Rays in the ‘small Maldivian currents’! The highlights of this trip had to be the Night Dive at Alimata Jetty, during the dive brief they said there would be sharks but we didn’t expect to be surrounded by hundreds of them for non-stop action! A wonderful experience we wont forget and then the beautiful Manta Rays who came so close you could feel the power of their wings, such graceful creatures, such lovely memories. Some photos have been posted on Facebook and we have loads more which will be added to flikr shortly.
Our swimmers have been busy too, the Nemes Nutters Swim Club did us proud again. The Chill Swim event at Lake Windermere saw our Nutters walk away with no less than 8 medals between them. We have an awesome team of swimmers and it takes a lot to jump in to freezing temperatures in just a swimsuit, so proud of all of you.
Recently we took another group for a Dry Dive at Whipps Cross Dive Chamber. They had a great time getting ‘narced’ at 40 metres without getting wet. Big thanks to Wayne at Divers Emergency Service for looking after us again and showing us how the chamber is a divers best friend.
We have our first social event for this year on Friday 28th February. A comedy night at Dickens World, be entertained by 4 world class comedy acts, followed by a Disco til the early hours. We have also heard a rumour one of the acts from TVs ‘The Voice’ will also be there. All this for just £13.50, call the Dive Centre on 0750 762 4911 to book.
Looking ahead we have our Egypt Liveaboard trip in May, only 2 spaces left now so if you want to book on this one you better be quick!
