After many weeks of drying out the gills, Victoria has eased the COVID-19 restrictions meaning that diving is now a permitted activity. Conditions still remain in place including limiting groups to a maximum of 20 divers and continuing to maintain 1.5m physical distancing. The below points continue to be put into action around the store;
*A sign has been placed on our front door outlining conditions of entry, if you display any symptoms of being unwell, have traveled internationally over the last 14 days or have been in contact with anyone that has done so we request that you don't enter the store until 14 days post travel or contact.
*As soon as you enter the front door you will see a hand sanitiser station set up, we request every person entering to please make use of this.
*Equipment is not to be tried on in-store without staff supervision so that items can be sterilised accordingly
*Additional cleaning will take place morning, middle and end of the day of shop surfaces and points of contact
*As of Monday 1st May store hours will be Monday through Saturday 12-5 each day and closed Sunday.
*Tank fills are still available as usual however remote drop off and collection for tank fills is available through our rear access gate, please call the store if this is something you would like to facilitate.
With diving being permitted again we will be running a number of shore and boat dives over the coming weekend. Please head to our "dive schedule" page to see the schedule and view guidelines for the activity.
Hire gear will also now be available with additional cleaning and sanitisation procedures set up in store for after use.
As pools remain closed we will unfortunately continue to suspend entry level training programs until further notice.
