Happy New Year from the new management at Wolf Rock Dive Centre: Alex Heathcote, James Nelson, Fiona Butler and nine-month-old Finnigan
Cheryl Maughan and Kev Phillips have moved to Mooloolaba to focus on commercial diving, and welcome new managers Fiona Butler, James Nelson and Alex Heathcote.
The diving industry has seen James and Fiona all over the world, from Africa to Central America, Europe to Southeast Asia.
They met Alex four years ago in Western Australia and he relieved Fiona more recently in Heron Island for her maternity leave managing the marine centre.
“We heard about Wolf Rock from Heron Island and were looking for a chance to run our own diving business. We feel it is a gem of a dive site that just is a bit of a secret!” Fiona says.
“With visibility ranging up to 15m, we’ve had regular sightings of up to 30 sharks, Bull Rays clustering around the descent line, turtles, giant groupers, eagle rays and schooling barracuda.
“We will be bringing dive courses into the mix, offering Open Water courses, Discover Scuba Diving experiences on our nursery reef, and advanced courses on the Rock itself.”
If you are already certified, they also offer diving equipment rental and sales.
“We are keen to show off this world class dive site and put it on the map for the East Coast. We’ll be offering local specials once we are fully settled in and hope to meet you soon.”
So pop in for a chat at 2 Goondi Street, Rainbow Beach or call Wolf Rock Dive on 5486 8004 or 0498743795 to find out more.
