Ocean Optics & The Underwater Photography Festival, 2007 diver certifications list of honour and 2008 season preview

And so to the end of the second season of Diamond Diving……highlights of course including beating the French in a Rugby World Cup semi-final in Paris!!! Also Dolphins sited in Villefranche, St Raphael and Antibes…hunting barracuda, rays, huge snapper, free swimming morays etc etc etc.

Now we have The Underwater Photography and Videography Festival at Marine-land and a final few dives in Golfe Juan and off the Cap D’Antibes to look forwards to with our friends from Mavericks and Ocean Optics…this is a date worth noting for next year as the water temperature is still twenty degrees.

A huge thank-you must go to all of our clients (both individuals and dive centres) this year who have enjoyed the unique combination of great diving, awesome food and wine, and beautiful scenery that our five destinations offer. We appreciate your support!

Congratulations in particular go to out to Duncan, Gail, Lindsey, John, Amanda, Jonny, Jim, Rob, Phoebe, Dave, Rosanna, George, John, Tom M, Tim, Will, Brenna, Peter, Dilli, Max, Tonya, Ali, Jo-Ann, Rhys, Nic, Katy and Emma on passing their various PADI qualifications.

For 2008 we will continue to offer our usual range of long weekend holidays, with the following points worth noting:

  • In October ’08 we will be offering wreck diving weeks around the La Londe/Porquerolles Marine Reserve region.
  • Speciality courses are a great way to build confidence and open your eyes further to areas of interest from the PADI Advanced Course. Of particular relevance to South of France diving are Nitrox, Underwater Photography, Deep and Wreck specialities. One or more of these may be completed over a weekend.
  • We do offer tailored itineraries, learn to dive weeks for groups and longer multiple destination trips…just phone or e-mail for further details
