Christmas Dive & After-Party 8th Dec 2018

Hey all, it’s getting closer to ‘that time of year’ when the calendar runs out of dates BUT there is plenty of diving happening, and in particular this year’s Club Christmas Dive !!

This year, for something completely different, the club has organized a dive gathering departing locally at Cairns.  We have accepted (after an EOI process) an offer by Tusa Dive to use their whole boat, T6 provided we fill it (and I’m sure we will).  It only takes 50 divers so definitely first in to dive !!  A very special club discounted price applies (please refer to your email or I can send out another >>>  DiveCoordinator@nautilus-scuba.net )

On Saturday 8th December  we will board T6 (usual club dive logistics apply) 

You can bring all your own gear or for a small fee have all gear provided.  If you want Nitrox then advise when booking as availability is limited and choose from a one or two dive option.

This year club members this year get access to:

  • an operator closer to home for the majority of active members;
  • Have Nitrox on board (limited to be quick);
  • Non club member (partners/family) snorkelers at a locals discount rate;
  • Most likely the whole boat to ourselves, so will be like a Private Charter at heavily discounted rates AND plenty of space on board.

T6 also visit sites that differ from other  Cairns based operators so provide the best local experience based on weather conditions of the day.
This is certainly an offer to seriously consider as it is not very often the club gets an entire boat to ourselves – in fact if you are not yet a member and reading this – this deal is worth the joining fee alone !!

All members need to do is to call the Tusa Dive office during office hours on Ph. 07 4047 9100.  Payment is required at the time of booking (inc any pre-booked Nitrox).  Remember to have your Nautilus Card ready to provide your member number.

We are looking forward to this event and seeing as many members as possible onboard, enjoying the dives as a club together, supporting Tusa Dive who are great sponsors of Nautilus Scuba Club and visiting great dive sites.

JOIN US FOR THE AFTERPARTY!!

The afterparty is booked at The Backyard, which is a brand new venue at Shangri-La Cairns Marina, opening in a few weeks time. We’ll kick-off about 5/5:30pm. A range of yummy food will be organised for all of us, to which members will have to contribute $15 and non members $30. Please RSVP to social@nautilus-scuba.net
 
This event is a great opportunity for all our members, friends and family to meet and mingle, get to know your fellow dive enthusiasts and spread some Christmas cheer. 

There will be a selection of vegetarian, gluten free and non-vegetarian food available, but if you have any other dietary requirements, make sure to let us know as soon as you sign up! Check your emails from the Club for more information or email social@nautilus-scuba.net

See you all there!!
