U mean u r member of CDAA ?


Yeah I became a member last year when I lived in Adelaide. Loved diving the Mount, although I barely got any dives in before I left for NZ. :( Going back around Easter but don't think I'll have enough time to get much diving in. I hear Ewen's Ponds is in trouble, some sort of nasty algal growth or something - hopefully not Didymo! :shock:

PS my profile photo is me coming out of Pics Ponds :wink:

I did the theory, pool and abseiling/climbing with Max and the training dives with Heike. I got into to it through Adelaide uni's dive club (AUSC) who now has about 12 CDAA-trained members. Great lot of people to dive with! I miss them and staying at the Bellum hotel! 8) They've already asked me why I won't be going on their Easter trip with them, but unfortunately I just don't have time. working over Easter weekend again. :(

Last i heard of Ewen Ponds is that it is now officially a 'SNORKEL' only area.
I didn't know about some 'divers' going sabotage though - but this is probably the reason.
If it was algae growth, they would just close the Pond until all is well again.

...doesn't the Te Anau Glowworm Cave system accommodate Cave Diving :?:
(not at the front where the Tourists hang out with the Glowworms)
Just drifting along with whatever is current.
Currently I'm reading : The Art of Innovation by Tom Kelley.
