The Azul Ocean June 2011 Newsletter

Hello from The Azul Ocean by Arthur Koch,

We have just returned from Indonesia. We were gone three weeks; a few days in Hong Kong, Bali and 2 weeks of diving at Wakatobi Dive Resort in SE Sulawesi! I hope to start sharing photos late next week as I have 4,575 images to review and pick the “best of the best”. Please check our Facebook fan page and blog for updates.

We will be at the 42nd Boardwalk Arts Festival June 16th through 19th in Virginia Beach, VA. The Arts festival is from 10am to 6pm each day on the Boardwalk. We are in booth #1910 between 19th and 20th streets. Please check our Facebook fan page for updates.  Hope to see you!

We are extremely excited about our images placed at The Gallery @ Racine in Wilmington, NC. 1-910-452-2073. We have an awesome selection of images produced on brushed aluminum. Prices range from $475 to $1,450. Ask for Mike or Cindy.

We understand May of 2012 sounds far off! If you don’t hurry space will fill up for our Saba Marine Park trip aboard the Caribbean Explorer May 26 to June 2, 2012 and we would love for you to join The Azul Ocean family of divers. (
