ReelCrayZee – Mission Beach (TBA)

Pre-announcement of the upcoming dive trip out of Mission Beach with operator ReelCrayZee this September !!

This exciting one-day outing is in the final stages of planning with details coming soon.

That said, if you want an opportunity to dive either wrecks, reef or both then this is for you.  Exactly what, well that is still being negotiated and of course is, like all diving, weather dependent (we trust the skipper on the day).
There will be a maximum of 8 divers (we are booking the whole boat) with 2 dives on the day.

DO put into your diary the following:  Sunday 30th September, 2018.
As always, costs and details will be emailed to club financial members in an email soon (they have given us a bargain rate!!).

Not a member?  Easy …  simply go to this link and join, membership comes with great offers, unique savings and fantastic buddies to dive and socialize with!  Did we also mention discounts from sponsor dive shops and operators all year around!

Lake Eacham BBQ 21st of January

Annual Lake Eacham BBQ

We will have people there from approximately 9.30am and we try to get a shelter up the top near the path down to the pontoon/jetty.

The BBQ will be around midday so if you are intending to go diving please plan your dive times around that.  Remember that diving is at your own risk and you will have to bring all gear including tanks and weights (Tanks can be hired from scuba shops around cairns – eg Deep sea divers den, Cairns Scuba Air).  There are rumours of an underwater treasure hunt… so make sure you get in early.

Please RSVP by the Monday 15th of January so we can sort out catering.  Please BYO drinks and chairs.

If you are new to the club please come along and meet some of your fellow dive enthusiasts.

See you all there!
