I just wanted to say that I'm really excited that the famous Diving Locker Sunday Safaris have started up again. We had a fantastic trip to Tuwanek on the Sunshine Coast. It was great to sit back and let Annie and Chelsea look after the equipment, driving, ferry ride and other details.
I was glad to be introduced to a new dive site by people who know it well. Even though we didn't see the resident wolf eels, it was good to know where to look. And it is nice exploring a new place without worries about unexpected hazards.
We went with a friendly group of divers that I'd be happy to see again on a future trip. And I really appreciated the non- competetive inclusive atmosphere between the more expert and less expert divers. Everyone was there to have fun, learn if there was an opportunity, and to look out for each other.
The two dives gave us some of the best water clarity I've seen locally. It was approaching tropical visibilty. The temperature was doable for those of us in wetsuits. I did envy Don breaking in his new dry-suit though. When is the next "Boss is Away Sale", Chesea?
These Safaris are a great bridge for those who are newly certified, doing courses, and wanting to build up confidence by diving with experienced divers. They are a good way to explore new sites, as well as make new friends. And the price is excellent value.
Feel free to share all or part of my "testimonial" with anyone if you think it will encourage them to come out for these trips. I really hope we get lots more Safaris with Annie and Chelsea.
Cheers, Dave Irwin.
