This week is hard to predict, the sea state could be calm with off shore winds but the are very high and the swell is between 1 - 4 feet. The tides are early so diving would be better on the incoming tides. Really need to watch winds and tides.
We are completing the four dives on the PADI Open water diver course on Saturday and Sunday. The course will be hosting Ian, Jan, Coral, Matt, Siobhan and Daniel. They will be completing the dives to obtain the PADI Open Water Diver qualification.
