The regular Diving Leisure trips to Malta are taking on a legendary status so if you’ve never been able to go before, now’s your chance! I’ll be finalising details shortly but we’ll aim to head out on the Wednesday night of the 8th and return on the Monday of the 13th. Costs will be around the £160 mark for diving and accommodation varying dependent on where you book. Flights are currently around the £200 mark on Air Malta.

WRAYSBURY WEDNESDAY NIGHTS: AUG 14th
Can’t find the time to fit in a dive? Why not join us on Wednesday evenings at Wraysbury dive centre. During the summer Wraysbury open late and you can enjoy a dusk dive after work. The water is currently 22 deg at the surface so drysuits are not a must! We can give you an orientation to UK diving if you’ve never been before and would like a go.

SUMMER PARTY ON CLAPHAM COMMON JUL 17th
This year we’ve decided to go very relaxed with the Summer party. The plan is to have a picnic and drinks up on Clapham common in the late afternoon and then into the evening. It’s going to be totally informal and all we ask is that you bring something to eat and drink and perhaps a picnic blanket! As always everyone is welcome to join us.
THE NORTHCOTE CARNIVAL
Thank you to everyone who came to see us at the Northcote carnival earlier in June. We had a great day out meeting people and talking about the dive shop. Check out some pictures of the event here:
THE DIVE MAGAZINES
Also check us out in the dive magazines this month, we’re in both Diver and Sport Diver (although they got my name wrong in Sport Diver!) Also there’s an article by me in the latest issue of ‘Tanked up’ which is now available at the shop.
We’ve had 2 massively busy weekends in June teaching the Surrey cadets to dive. We had loads of fun, based down on the Pirbright barracks for both days. I can honestly say that it was far preferable to watching England get knocked out of the World Cup!
BITEBACK AT CANCER BALL
Finally make sure you get your tickets for the Biteback ball. This year the Ball will be on a boat on the Thames and if last years have been anything to go by then this will be a great evening. DLL will be turning out in style so make sure you book your tickets early to secure your space!
As always you can contact us that shop for great deals on dive equipment.
That’s about it for now. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at the shop if you have any questions or would like to book on any of the above courses or trips.
