Omsac Night Dive Saturday – 22 April 2017

Omsac Night Dive Saturday – 22 April 2017

  The first ever dive I did with OMSAC was a night dive, so it was an interesting reflection for me to be the one doing the dive briefing for Saturdays Night dive, and in turn introducing four new divers to the wonders of diving at night. To me this is exactly the reason to be part of an active club, an environment where new divers can become experienced divers and divers of all levels are welcome. Thank you Mandy for organizing our first...

Dive Report 26 March 2017

The Sunday dive From Carel Past! Part 1 So it was retro Sunday for Carel van Der Colff from Dive Inn and some of our OMSAC divers Pierre Luke Tanya, benefited from his generosity. One person’s stomach bug is another’s opportunity to dive. I can only postulate that after a two year absence the Siren call of Pick N Pay, AKA sharks and seals, was too much for Carel. So down the shot we went starting at the Smitswinkle side of Partridge point....

Diving the Lusitania / Mark’s Folly

Diving the Lusitania / Mark’s Folly

This dive holds mythical, if not legendary status among Cape Town divers. It is the domain of the SS Lusitania who struck bellows rock  at midnight on 18 April 1911before sliding off the rock to the 40m reef below. It is a site talked about by those who have visited her with a note of reverence in their voice due to the proximity of unforgiving bellows rock that was her undoing. Part of her mystic is the fact that this site is driveable only a...
