Slipway Out of Bounds

Just a reminder that the slipway area is not to be used by divers and must be kept clear at all times.

The area can become very slippery and may be required for emergency vehicles and access.

Thanks for your understanding.

Scuba Diving around & under the Saltfree Pontoon

Saltfree Pontoon

As a reminder for scuba divers – please could you avoid the area around & underneath the Saltfree Divers pontoon when their A flag is flying and they are freediving.

In particular we also request that divers do not use the freedive mooring lines for decompression stops.

If the freedivers had to release their counterweight system in an emergency, there is the risk of being caught by a 60kg weight.

The upcoming freedive meets are as follows:

• 30 April
• 1 May
• 21/22 May
• 11/12 June
• 9/10 July
• 30/31 July
• 6/7 August
• 27/28 August
• 10/11 September
• 24/25 September
• 8/9 October

We’d also like to remind any divers using re-breathers that you must also use a Surface Marker Buoy (SMB) throughout your dive. (However please note that yellows SMBs should only be used in emergencies.)

Thanks for your understanding.
