GoGoGo Tobago and save £225 with Regaldive

Published

on

There’s never been a better incentive to escape the spring showers thanks to UK based diving holiday specialist Regaldive. For a limited time only*, the dive operator is offering a minimum of £100 and maximum of £225 saving per person on all Tobago departures between May and September 2014. The offer applies to all hotels including the new five-acre Grafton Beach Resort which was added to Regaldive’s portfolio just this week. With seven night Tobago holidays now costing from just £648 per person including flights, there’s never been a better time to GoGoGo Tobago.

Offering something for all divers, Tobago has a well-deserved reputation for some of the most spectacular drift diving in the Caribbean. Its proximity to South America places the island in the path of the Guyana current, which feeds the area with nutrients from Venezuela’s Orinoco River. This attracts an explosion of marine life and results in outstanding hard coral formations, including what is purportedly the world’s largest brain coral at Kelleston Drain, off Speyside, and immense barrel sponges. Divers exploring the Caribbean coast are in for a treat with more sheltered reefs, huge plate coral colonies and the wreck of the Maverick.

All departures between 1st May and 30th September 2014 are discounted by £100 per person. Divers can save an additional £75 on 9th July departures, or an additional £125 on 16th July departures.

For those on a budget, seven night stays at the Toucan Inn cost from just £648 per person for a limited time only. The Toucan Inn is one of Tobago’s most popular hotels and is located just a short walk away from the bars, restaurants and water sports facilities. The price includes return flights, transfers and B&B accommodation.

Alternatively, for those looking to sample the new Grafton Beach Resort, seven night stays currently cost from just £701 per person including discount, to include return flights, transfers and B&B accommodation. The resort is located above the palm-fringed stretch of beach known as Stonehaven Bay on the Caribbean coast and benefits from an onsite dive centre, freshwater swimming pool, games room, shopping arcade, various bars and restaurants and the use of the sports and spa facilities at the neighbouring Le Grand Courlan Spa Resort.

Over in Speyside on the Atlantic coast, seven nights’ at Nabucco’s Resort currently cost from £845 per person, to include return flights, transfers and B&B accommodation. The resort is located on the edge of Speyside village and commands fabulous views over the bay towards the Goat Island, former residence of Ian Fleming, and the island of Little Tobago.

Also located in the Speyside area is the Blue Waters Inn. For a limited time only, seven night stays currently cost from £794 per person, to include return flights, transfers and B&B accommodation.

A five day dive pack at any of the above resorts costs from £237 per person when diving with Extra Divers, to include two boat dives per day, air tanks and weights. The contrast between the two Atlantic and Caribbean coasts makes Tobago an ideal twin centre destination and Regaldive can arrange for dive packs to be split between both sides of the island for the best all-round diving experience.

For further information, or to book, visit www.regaldive.co.uk or call +44 (0)1353 659 999.

* The offer is valid until 31st May 2014, so get in there quick to take advantage.

The Shark Trust Great Shark Snapshot is back

Published

on

The last week of July will see the return of the Shark Trust’s citizen science initiative, The Great Shark Snapshot. It invites divers and snorkellers, all around the world, to record the sharks and rays that they see. This year it takes place between the 20th and 28th July.

The event is back for its 3rd year, and it is happening in “Shark Month”, more commonly known as July! To coincide with a series of events that celebrate all things shark and ray.

Divers, their clubs, dive centres, charter boats and liveaboards are all encouraged to show their support by organising dives and events through the week. As well as gathering vital data, the event will provide a chance to celebrate the incredible shark and ray species that live in our ocean.

Information about the species and numbers of sharks and rays the participants find over the week will be added to the Shark Trust’s Shark Log. This global shark census will, over time, allow shark scientists to build a picture of species distribution and any changes that occur

Caroline Robertson-Brown, Marketing Manager at the Shark Trust said “It is great to see this popular citizen science event back for its 3rd year. Whether you are diving your local dive site, or on a trip of a lifetime, we want divers to join in on the Great Shark Snapshot in July. I cannot wait to hear from the divers and dive organisations about the species of sharks and rays that they see. And where in the world they see them.”

It is easy to join in. Just go diving between 20th and 28th July and record every shark, ray and skate that you and your dive group sees. If possible, take photos and some video footage too. Then make sure that you record your sightings on the Shark Trust Shark Log recordings website or by using the Shark Trust app.

The Great Shark Snapshot is a way for divers to get together, go diving, and do something to help shark conservation. Why not dive in?
