Newsletter: Dive trips, anchors and friendly fish

Hi everyone

The past few weeks have been busy. Kate has finished her Divemaster course and 60 dives. In 40 days, this is quite an achievement with the average dive time being 45 minutes.

The weather forecast this past week has been somewhat mystical with forecasts of 40 knot winds that never appeared and in fact we dived yesterday in what appeared to be a lake… The sea was flat.

I have students on Saturday and hope to dive at Long Beach, however the weather forecast does not seem promising. Sunday looks like an Atlantic day with a 45 km/h southeaster. If it looks better tomorrow I will text the people that have indicated their need to ”get in the water”. I start a new Zero to Hero diver today so I will once again dive every diveable day for the next few months.

The 16th is a holiday and I am planning to book a boat for a wreck dive and a reef dive in the Atlantic. Being a long weekend everyone wants to dive so please let me know by this Saturday afternoon if you are in.

I want to plan a trip to Sodwana for mid February, along the same lines as the last one as it was a huge success, we all had amazing dives, good food and very acceptable accommodation. Let me know if you think its a possibility so I can get some quotes in.

The next picture is the elusive anchor at Long Beach, we have found it several times now and hope to mark the spot with a GPS soon.

This picture is a very friendly klipfish allowing me to stroke his chin.

These little chaps are around at Long Beach. I have now seen four of them, all at different locations, far apart, and all different sizes, so I know there are more. The one we saw today was no bigger than a 50 cent piece. This one is called Peanut and he has a friend called Butter… Butter is a tiny little jutjaw and they are always together.

The ocean is warm, sort of clean and keen to see you,
