Wonderful to have the group from Sha Tin College, Hong Kong back with us again for their CAS week. Some took part in PADI diving courses and some did the Activities program. In the group we had 12 new Open Water divers, and one Advanced diver. The Activities group kept busy with sailing, Extreme Sports, golfing, water sports, zip line and a trip to Tukauran where they got to enjoy the waterfalls. Everyone also spent a day on Verde Island visiting a local school to have some fun interaction with the local kids and end the experience with an awesome BBQ . We had a fun send-off in El Galleon with a cultural dance performance, fire dancers and a great band! Thank you to all of the teachers and especially Mick Wilson for getting this all organized this year. Looking forward to seeing you back again in 2018!

September is the time of year when El Gal and Asia Divers sees the return of the “Animals” It’s been a long time tradition over many years for the Animals to meet up here to celebrate the birthdays of Larry Bird and John Tucker. It’s also a reflective time for a select few as they experience their religious callings. In-between all this they also got to do some incredible diving and enjoy perhaps a drink or two with their good friends.
Here are a few “oldie” photos from a few years ago….oh my!! Asia Divers 30th Anniversary celebration is getting very close. Dates of the event are November 24, 25 and 26. Please contact us if you would like to attend this fun-filled weekend email@example.com

It was great to have Vision Divers here with us again. Mostly from Melbourne Australia, Vision Divers have been visiting us for at least 10 years, and always have a great time. Scott, Kaite, Dave,Rob, Emma and Eliz all carried on that tradition . All the usual activities were at hand, including a great day out at Verde Island. There were lots of critter sightings on our local dives, including an encounter with an eagle ray on their final dive. Of course Vision are no wimps when it comes to post diving activities, so the Point Bar is always the venue of choice. We are really glad the new look Point Bar got the seal of approval from these guys. See you next time!
Notable people missing from the trip were, Pete Webster and his Mrs Deb Lord who could not attend this visit. We missed you!
