Rainy weather? Might as well put your wetsuit on!

Our January 2017 Newsletter

Happy New Year, Compass Tribe!

Here's a great big bubbly hello to 2017! Beautiful and happy memories of 2016 now filed away, it is time to march forward onto new ocean adventures in the coming months.

We hope you have all had as great a time as we did over the recent holiday period, despite the wet season setting in. You know what they say - if it's raining, grey and miserable on land, there is no better place to be than to pull on your wetsuit and dive underwater! The clean and porous nature of Atauro Island means that there is not much sediment runoff onto the surrounding reefs even after a downpour. We have been blessed by good diving conditions and clear blue waters all throughout our dives on the East coast of Atauro the past couple of weeks. So blessed to the point where we had a juvenile whaleshark swimming alongside our divers on our last dive of 2016 - and it was all just a mere few hundred meters in front of our Beach House!

Aside from leisure dive trips, our team of instructors have also been kept busy over the holiday period, training new ocean enthusiasts into becoming a part of the Compass Tribe via our selection of PADI Dive Courses. A big shout of congratulations again to everyone who got certified with us in December! We've included some pictures of the happy faces below.
Final highlight of the past month would be the opening of Compass' very own Beach House located in Beloi, Atauro Island. Offering guests the convenience of a fully equipped campsite with on-site shower, toilet, and a mere few steps off the beach, all anyone has to do to enjoy a few nights away on the beautiful island is to book your stay with us and show up with your hat, thongs and bathers in hand!
