What a fantastic weekend of diving we were treated to! Even though the swell picked up a little more then expected on Saturday we had our first successful Advanced Only Dive Day! We headed out to China Wall, where we explored extensive kelp forests and the Rebreather Guys even ran into a 2.5m Tiger Shark! Lucky guys! You can check out the video on our Facebook page. Our second dive of the day was at Henderson's Reef, unfortunately the visibility wasn't in our favour but this site has lots of awesome swim throughs and gutters! We can't wait to get back there and dive it with better viz next time! Our next Advanced Only Day is Saturday October 18, where we will be aiming for Cementco and Smith's Rock!!!!

Sunday DiveQuest was privately chartered and we wandered off to Flinders Reef. Dive 1 of the day was a wonderful surprise on a beautiful reef just north of Flinders. With incredible viz and plenty of healthy coral and fish life we enjoyed a spectacular dive. Due to the current picking up towards the end of the first dive we moved back to Flinders' itself for a nice 2nd dive. With amazing viz still and whales singing to us underwater everyone had a wonderful time playing with friendly turtles, cuttlefish and the beautiful fish life and coral the Flinders is so well known for! 

We are off on another Advanced Only Dive Day on Saturday 18th October, this time our destinations will be aimed at Cementco and Smiths Rock with 7 spots still left on this trip! For those who aren't up for some tricky diving, we will also be heading to Cook Island on Saturday 18th October with 9 Spots Left.

We have scheduled a special 3 dive afternoon trip on Saturday 15th November, heading to Flinders Reef with the last dive being a NIGHT Dive!   8 Spots left on this trip!

DiveQuest has some busy weekends coming up, so if you're wanting to dive in the next few weeks make sure you get in early to avoid disappointment.
