What we’ve been doing this Summer at Oyster Diving
Summer at Oyster Diving
Well with the first rainfall in about 3 months (my shell is soaking) I thought it was about time I wrote my latest blog as to what I’ve been up to in the world of scuba with Oyster Diving.
I didn’t realise just how busy I could be, far more intense then digging holes in the sand and laying eggs I can tell you!
At the start of the summer I’ve been to all of the six pools we teach at; Surrey & Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Soho in London, South East London & Kent (Caterham) and Brighton.
We’ve taught our oldest customer to date (78) and lots of children for their 8th Birthday. I spent a splendid couple of weeks helping Instructor Mark to teach foreign students at Bedes Summer camp and then joined Isabelle for four weeks teaching kids at Camp Beaumont. We still have a few weeks to go and it’s proving to be getting really popular despite it being our first year.
Scuba Paul has kept me busy helping to sign up a few more corporate dive clubs including KPMG, Freshfields and Framestore. We ran a Discover Scuba night in Soho for the Framestore guys and they absolutely loved it. We are now planning lots of trips and holidays as well as getting them qualified. I’m secretly hoping to persuade them to organise a trip to the Maldives so I can visit the beach where I was born.
The weekend training dives have been brilliant. With warm water and sunny skies everyone seems to have really enjoyed it. Nick even ditched his dry suit about 2 months ago. If you get a chance check out some of the photos on our Facebook Page – www.facebook.com/oysterdiving.
We have recently announced several trips so I’m going to try and stow myself away in someone’s luggage. Our group holidays include Makadi Bay on the Red Sea, Mexico, Maldives, Djibouti and Galapagos. If you are interested in joining me then please just give the office a call on 0800 699 0243.
In the next few weeks I’m heading to Lundy and the Farne Islands to dive some some seals – can’t flipping wait!
Don’t forget my moto – diving is for life, not just for Christmas!
