The summer is really with us now, all blue skies every day, fantastic diving conditions and as usual so much life to see. We have had a great June, and have met some great divers, both New divers and experienced divers.
Dive Against Debris
We completed our third Dive against debris at the end of this month, we had great fun, as well as collected a large amount of debris from the sea at El Puertito where the Turtles live, obviously our dive was enhanced by the arrival of our resident turtle clan. We were stunned to pull blankets, Wine Bottles, Beer cans as well as 100’s of meters of fishing line and weights out of the sea. When we surfaced we had 5 bags full of ocean debris. It was a great feeling that you can make a difference. We will be completeing our next dive against Debris mid july, so if anyone is over here having a break please contact us for details.
We were pleased to welcome Kim (Alice) back to Dive and Sea, she has now joined us as a member of staff, and so will be helping out around the centre. Kim will now officially become Alice its even on her new T shirts. Alice is hoping to complete her Assistant Instructor course next month, when she will have been diving for a whole 6 months!!
Alice is also translating our website into Dutch, and we have a friend translating it also into Spanish so look out for the new look pages!

Abades bay is a shore dive site and suitable for all levels of diver, from Discover Scuba Diver and upwards. We walk out across the beach and head out into the water descending into approximately 5 meters of water, we then follow around the rocky reef, as you move along the side of the reef looking in the cracks and crevices you will see a whole variety of life, when you head up onto the top of the reef its almost like you are in an underwater meadow as the plants growing on all the rocks cover every surface. When the sun is shinning its even more beautiful.
