A message from our President

Dear Nautili,

We had an online emergency committee tonight re Covid-19 via Zoom. An interesting experience, with new rules of communication, and underwater sign language proved to be handy. And I would like to share with all of you the main issues we discussed tonight:

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic

  1. Diving: All dive operators have ceased operations for the next few months. We can’t predict the future but we expect that diving might not be possible for quite some time. The Dive Coordinator will keep close contact with the operators and as soon it is safe and feasible to dive again, you will be the first to know. 
    As current restrictions are easing (from June 2020), some special dives are being organised so watch that space!   Please look to your email Inbox for further details and when dive events will resume.
  2. All overseas trips are in the process of being cancelled or deferred.  Australia’s borders are closed and we don’t know for how long, but expect quite some time. Akiko has been keeping all  members who are affected by this up to date. No new overseas trips will be planned at this stage. 
  3. The Underwater Photo-competition 2020 has been cancelled. We are all very sorry we had to make this decision but we did not see a way to pull it off.  We hope that we can organise the Photo-competition again in 2021 – we will keep you updated.
  4. Club-meetings – all physical club-meetings are cancelled until further notice. We are thinking of ways to organise other means to keep in contact and keep our dive appetites wetted. If you have suggestions or contributions, please share
  5. Newsletter – self-isolation and writing articles or sending in items, photos, stories, news for the Newsletter go very well together. Please send in your contributions to editor@nautilus-scuba.net

If you have any questions or suggestions, or wish to share information  with members, let us know. 
It is on us as a community to help each other and get each other through these rough times. 

Stay safe and keep each other safe. 

Warm wishes,
Jannemieke,

Nautilus Scuba Club President

Photos from Feb trip

A few photos from the monthly club trip on ReefKist (Cairns Dive Centre) to Milln Reef, Feb 2012

We had a very good turnout on this dive. Weather was challenging in the morning but cleared up and calmed down beautifully in the afternoon! After lunch, we were able to dive and snorkel the wild (Southeast) side of Milln Reef! This is a rare opportunity. Everyone enjoyed it very much.
