The Dive School
"Itís become one of the main stays of the business, the Dive School"
Itís become one of the main stays of the business, the Dive School. We have a clientele by word of mouth, always have had. Basically, to learn to dive, people are all, and it comes from all the ages, we get people across the board, from teenagers to pensioners, so sometimes in their life theyíve seen, ďoh, Iíd love to try that, Iím absolutely dying to try learning to dive,Ē so you get people in their sixties and diving is really all about diving to your own capabilities, you know, your own limits. Itís not a competitive, itís not a sport, itís a, itís wrong to call it a sport, itís a pastime, so itís something which can be done in, to whatever level you want to do it to.
