Three Santas Surface in Kent Today

Santa Dive December 2016

At Holborough lake today there was rumours that Santa would be passing by.

In fact he “dropped” right in, to be more precise 3 Santa’s dropped in.
There was two Mrs Santa’s and one Mr Santa.
Helen Acton, Samantha Varns and Paul Cook all dressed as Santa’s for a fun day of diving with Dive Machine.

Visibility was a superb 10+ metres with lots of activity in the water with hundreds of Perch, a good few jack Pike predating and inverebrates to be seen everywhere.
This was an exceptional dive today and one not to be missed.

Night Specialty & Advanced Open Water training

What a fantastic evening for night diving last night!

Yesterday evening (Wednesday 7th December) Dive Machine were at Holborough Lakes training students.  The students were completing their PADI Advanced Open Water training dives, PADI Night diver specialty, Dive Master Training and pleasure diving.

We were all enjoying the unusually warm surface temperatures of +14c in between the dives.  The viability was an amazing 6-7 meters and varying water temperatures between 8-6c.  There were sightings of the LARGE fresh water eel and medium sized pike along with the smaller perch scattered throughout the oxygenating weeds.

Well done to all of the students that successfully completed their training dives of different degrees.  We look forward to seeing everyone for the completing dives on 14th December.

If you are interested in participating in any of the training programs that we run at Dive Machine then please don’t hesitate to contact us at the dive center via e-mail or telephone
