New Season

27 Oct

Hi Blog followers,

We are back from vacation – 2 weeks in New York and Chris had a week in Miami where he is now a Certified Mercury Technician.
Thanks to Wes and Gillian (Sally’s parents) for entertaining us for 2 weeks – we had a great time.

We also had four amazing days in Saba – what an amazing Island that is – the diving was awesome. We are now running trips with Scouts Place / Saba Divers so if anyone wants to take a trip let us know, we can arrange it for you.

Now we are back and busier than ever.

Chris and Christian have just finished thier Snuba training, where Christian trained as a Snuba guide and Chris is now a Snuba guide trainer and one of 3 in the Caribbean.

Sally has been extremely busy keeping the dive operation up to its usual high standards – hence our 62 reviews on Tripadvisor:

Go Sally !!

Snuba in Orient Bay is all set to go live – we are just waiting for Octopussy to get registered and we will be up and running.

Octopussy has had some teething problems that Chris has been working on and we are seeing some light at the end of the tunnel now. She looks great and has a custom built tank rack, custom dive ladder, IPOD hook up on the high power Sony stereo system, all the safety features you would expect, two powerful 250HP Mercury Racing engines, and plenty of room. She is so stable that she has been certified for 20 people!! But still we just take 6.

We have our first all day Charter this season on Saturday its a birthday party for a couple so Sally and Chris will be taking them out with French Champagne, cake, lots of diving and an awesome lunch on Pinel Island – should be a great day trip out.

Sally will update soon so goodbye for now

Team Octopus.
