Following on from the success of the Komodo trip in August on the Palau Siren, we’re doing another liveaboard trip with the Siren Fleet to the Visayan Islands in the Philippines on the Philippine Siren. The Philippine Siren is virtually identical to the Palau Siren and so must be a very comfortable boat. All meals, tea, coffee, soft drinks and beer are included in the prices as are all the dives, including Nitrox (for certified divers) and dive gear, except computers and torches.
The plan is to encounter rare Thresher sharks frequently sighted in this area and the Whale Sharks of Oslob that feed from the hands of local fishermen. The coral reefs in the Visayas feature large schools of fish and macro life abounds providing world class marine life encounters and unique diving opportunities
The trip is for 9 days and 8 nights leaving from Sydney on 4 July 2013 and returning on 12 July. The cost is from $4,101 per diver.
There are a couple of spots left for this trip – which leaves in a month. Call the shop to reserve a place.

Grab a ScubaPro Everdry4 and keep warm!
Winter Introductory Offer: $999.00 (RRP $1399.00)
You can feel it in the air, and you’re layering up to head to work in the morning. Winter is on its way and while the water is still warm now, in May, by the end of June it’s going to start getting unpleasant in a wet suit.. But don’t let it be an excuse to stop diving. Owning a dry suit is cheaper than you may think and you’ll thank yourself for it when the water drops below that comfortable 17-18 degree mark!
St George Underwater Centre have a special Winter Introductory offer for the Scubapro Everdry 4mm Dry Suit. This suit looks as smart as it actually is....with a warm construction, neoprene seals and socks (you just slip on your normal boots and go!) it even comes equipped with a thigh pocket for extra gear. Come in and take a look at one for yourself, because at this price, we reckon Kel has gone craaaaazzzy!

Here’s an interesting trip to Espiritu Santo, Vanuato in August 2103. The trip includes flights, 8 shore dives, breakfast and accommodation.
The cost of the trip is $1,885 per diver leaving from Sydney.
For more information, see Vanuatu – August 2013
As promised, the details of the PNG Tufi trip are now available here: PNG Tufi – November 2013. This is going to be a sensational trip and your chance to see some amazing underwater life.
Papua New Guinea remains vastly untouched by the modern world and is one of the last true frontiers for nature lovers, adventurers and aquatic enthusiasts. Tufi is a remote, pristine region located at the tip of Cape Nelson in Oro Province. The resort, perched on the slopes of Mount Trafalgar, is surrounded by lush, tropical rainforest and overlooking a picturesque fjord. Opportunity to experience amazing cultures and aquatic marine life.
Stay tuned for details of two trips in 2013.
We have Vanuatu: Espiritu Santo to dive the SS President Coolidge and other sites for 7 days/6 nights in August for $1,885 per diver, ex Sydney.
We also have Papua New Guinea: Tufi for 11 days/10 nights in November for $3,965 per diver, ex Brisbane.
These trips are a great way to hone your skills as well as enjoy some different diving. Even if you’ve just learned to dive either tip would be good to plan for.
We’ll be posting details of these exciting trips in the next couple of days so keep an eye on the web site.
So… you have just completed your open water course. You can tick the “Learn to dive” box and move on to something else, right? Well, you could, but you could also use the skill you have just learned and explore the amazing underwater world.
Diving in Sydney might seem uninteresting, especially when compared to tropical diving but there is amazing number of animals to see around Sydney. Many of the animals we see you won’t ever see in the tropics, such as weedy seadragons, Port Jackson sharks at pineapplefish. Some other animals are much more abundant and accessible in Sydney, such as cuttlefish, octopus and seahorses.
Come and celebrate over 50 years of St George Underwater Centre and diving in Sydney with a rock and roll 50′s Christmas Party! Pull on your poodle skirt and slick back your hair for a night of dancing and fun with your dive buddies.
