    @Dorry I think Friday we can make it a scuba trip and Saturday we can snorkel, and some rock hopping can be thrown in as well.

    I'm sure no one will mind if we rather mix it up snorkel and scuba.
    Could we maybe get a list of who is attending.

    I could probably meet up with you guys on Friday morning, as we will be going away for the week-end. Please let me know your plans once you have them wrapped up :)

    I'm keen for a dive/snorkel. Let's just hope Vetchies' swell is pounding that day - the last time I went in with the wife for a dive and had to pull her out cos the current was too strong for her.

    My legs were stuffed for a couple days afterwards.

    Thanks guys. So thus far its just me and maybe @NitroNarcer is coming from Ctp And @Dorry, for those that only scuba we will be at Vetchies on Friday and scuba and snorkel on Saturday, we can meet at the parking lot at Ushaka closest vetchies at the Kayak centre. Can we maybe get a list of people that are interested.
