I’d love to do my advanced course finally!!

T-shirt/Hoodie update - apologies for the delay, they should be with us by the end of the week. Unfortunately they didnt arrive back with the sender after Hermes said they were being sent back due to the package being damaged during delivery, so poor Neptune have had to reprint them for us, hence the delay. We will let you know as soon as we have received them, pick up at our new teaching space and a social catch up somewhere afterwards I feel might be in order:))

Hi Lisa Frew Would you be able to send mine to a different address please I’m not at the previous one anymore. I’ll pm you. Thanks.

Save one for me please! 🙏

Just a quick update on the T-shirts, apologies they were supposed to be here last week, but apparently the courier company have messed up, so they are now on the way back to the sender, doh! 😞 So as soon as they have them back, they will send them back to us, will keep you posted. Sorry all! ... See MoreSee Less

You were risking it a bit, that plank looks a bit thin, unlike the plank on top 😘😘

Thank you to Divesouth for not only getting me through my drysuit speciality course last weekend, but for also showing me the excitement of scuba diving, by putting me through my open water course last year. To anyone who wants to experience the excitement of an underwater world then Divesouth is just a phone call away. Andy Low

Perfection 👌👌🤟

We’ve been lucky enough to see them several times at Isla Mujeres, Mexico and in the Maldives too. Just beautiful to watch, such effortless movement for such a big creature, but boy they are pretty fast, before you know it you’re watching their massive tail fin sweeping past you and off into the distance:) I love to swim side by side looking into their eyes and gills, moments I will never forget. Their markings are stunning, such graceful big giants:) 🐳🦈💕

I'm still waiting for that magical moment. Missed one in February by 5 minutes in Moalboal, Philippines some of us were still diving after several other divers had returned to the boat after chugging their air. One passed by the dive boat before the rest of us surfaced. So sometimes pays to be an air guzzler.

It's 20 years ago now but I worked in Exmouth, WA for three seasons doing my DM and returning as an instructor. Stunning creatures. In May/June in Exmouth you get the tail end of the whale sharks, mantas, the humpbacks are just arriving. Then there is all the usual daily stuff in their usual place like snakes, rays, turtles, schools of fish you can't see through, the odd tiger shark. I once had a 3.5-4m tiger shark on the qualifying dive of an OW course and we used to freedive with bull sharks/bronze whalers on the way back from the dive sites. All this in 10-12m max inside the reef. Now that would be a holiday...

Only ever seen one on the surface from liveaboard in Egypt. Maldives next year, so fingers crossed!!

Isla Mujeres (they’re small make juveniles) swimming side by side with mantas! St. Helena (big pregnant females and adult males). Ascension Island: juvenile ones, big anyway, swimming between huge jacks, galapagos sharks black durgeon! Love the moment you realize....yes, it’s a whale shark and then they’re almost passed you the next second. So gracefully slow, but fast by size!

My memory...

Only in my dreams at the moment 🙂

Exmouth, QLD 😁Edit: WA not QLD!

Thailand. On the King Cruiser wreck.

Despite hoping to in the Philippines, I wasn't lucky enough. The search continues.
