Welcome to the April 2018 Waiheke Dive & Snorkel Newsletter!
March has absolutely flown by! We've gotten in the water as often as we physically could this month, making the most of the much more settled weather compared to February!

This month we were awarded the PADI Green Star Award in recognition of our enthusiastic start and ongoing plans for conservation and sustainability!
As PADI says - "The PADI Green Star Dive Centre Award is granted to PADI Dive Centres and Resorts that demonstrate a dedication to conservation across a wide range of business functions, including water conservation, energy use, environmentally friendly transportation practices, use of sustainable materials, conservation leadership and a donation to conservation through Project AWARE. The Green Star Award identifies dive businesses that care about the environment and are acting to protect it."
Massive well done to our awesome team who have worked hard to make sure we make decisions that are best for our environment and stick to them!
March also saw the start of a PADI Open Water Course with the awesome team from Waiheke High School's Sea Sports!
Everyone worked really hard to ensure they mastered their skills, and we have some very enthusiastic divers in the making!
