PADI Member Forum in Durban & Umkomaas

Thank you for the attendance at both the PADI Member Forum in Durban and Umkomaas. It was a wonderful experience and we did have challenging times but we had a successful run through eventhough we had load-shedding.

The diving at Aliwal shoal not only offers a wide spectrum of marine life but has a very exciting and interesting history. Meeting up with the Clive Home and Tony Janssens who in 1976 saved lives when the Norwegian Tanker Produce struck the Aliwal shoal.
