Hey there Scubaversity Tribe,
Spring is in the air and we got a pep in our step again!
Planning is happening and our ducks are slowly getting in their rows.
Our courses are back on track as per our 2020 calendar with some minor changes here and there have a look at September 2020 and October 2020 Calendar to stay up to date.
Our August Bass Lake Weekend was epic with 6 new PADI Night Specialty Divers, a Certified PADI Open Water Diver, and 3 New PADI Rescue Divers. The visibility at Bass Lake was amazing with a temp that was on the chilly side - some Instructors saw the Jet-Ski and the Full Chopper for the first time.
Our National Scuba Cleanup day was a Huge Success, we collected 15 black bags full of stuff that does not belong in a river, from old shoes to metal poles and loads of plastic bottles. We want to do this more often so please let us know if you would like to be informed.
We are also starting our first PADI SideMount course at Scubaversity! All of us are jumping to do this course with the possibility of spending a proper hour at the bottom and not on a safety stop.
Everyone has been waiting so long to go diving that when we opened our Sodwana trip bookings within a week the trip was fully booked, this has kept us real busy in the office with paperwork and we are hard at work to book more trip. We a fantastic special with Blue Ocean Dive Resort in Aliwal if you want to get to the sea and cannot wait for the next Scubaversity trip. You get an extra 15% discount but only if you book with SV.
The next Instructor Development Course has also been scheduled for the 6th of October - if you were ever looking for a life-changing career this is the time to start! You can find more information here but feel free to give me a call if you would like to chat.
I pray you are all still safe and coping with the stress of our current situation. Remember we are here if you want to just have a cup of coffee, reminisce, and blow off some steam, diving is therapy and we are very willing to listen!
Lots of love
The six lost souls
