April news….

It’s almost as if the gods of weather have been teasing us by providing superb weather and diving conditions over the Easter long weekend and backing it up with not only a deluge on the Tuesday following Easter but giving us the middle finger and bypassing Autumn and taking us straight to Winter, in fact, as I sit here writing this newsletter, the weather man on the radio is saying that although we’re months away from the official start of the ski season, snow is on the ground at Mt Hotham!!!!

Never mind, this only means that our Winter time tropical get aways are getting closer by the day!

Kicking off in June from 6 to 14 2024, we’re taking a very large group to Fiji, staying at the VoliVoli Beach Resort and diving the Bligh Waters, we’re backing this up with a trip the Vanuatu from 18 to 25 July 2024 staying at Breakas Beach Resort in Port Villa (we have 1 bungalow left should anyone want to jump on at
the last minute?).  See more at:  https://www.scubaculture.com.au/event/hideaway-island-vanuatu-18-25-july-2024/

We will again be away at the start of July on a reconnaissance mission of New Caledonia to see what they have to offer.
