Ibiza – June 2011


img_0636-group-pre-diveA great long weekend (Thursday evening to Monday evening) organised by Jacqui & Steve with Punta Dive at their Cala Martina centre just outside Santa Eulalia, Ibiza.  We did 3 dives a day, 2 in the morning and one in the afternoon from a 12m Valliant RIB. 

All the dive guides were great, putting up with the foibles of a British club, and we tried to remember all our training, including putting on fins, and turning our air on before jumping in.  The centre provided communal hot showers (greatly enjoyed by some club members), overnight equipment storage for our kit as well as safety deposit boxes.  There was a  dive shop and equipment servicing area if we needed it and plenty of space to relax under the palm trees on the lawn area in front of the centre.  Unfortunately they were unable to provide Nitrox whilst we were there, although apparently it is usually available free of charge.

Bed and breakfast accommodation was at the Hotel Anfora, El Cana and we mixed in well with the Saga holiday makers and young families.  However, we didn’t join in the Karaoke, Bingo or other evening entertainments.  We also missed the parrot show!


In between dives we adjourned to the nearby cafes for lunch, where we were usually joined by some non-diving 

who had accompanied us for this holiday.  It was lovely to have them with us and we trust they enjoyed their sight seeing and lazing around during the day.  Evening meals were taken at local restaurants and took most of the evening!
