Opportunities in Diving

Opportunities in Diving

Throughout some of our previous blogs we have stated how diving can take you to many wonderful and unique places, where you can experience a wide variety of new, exotic things. Today I would like to give you an example of one of these experiences. In June next year we will be taking 26 students from the local university in Cardiff, to a protected environmental sight in Spain. The 26 students will be staying in a villa next to the marina, where they will be volunteering on the protected diving sight for a week. This will give them experience within the discipline of their study, providing them with amazing experiance in their future field of work. This will involve maintaining the site as well as diving the area and studying the wildlife.

6 of the students will then stay on for a month as part of a volunteer course. They will be staying in a small house, in the middle of the forestry area 4 kilometers away from the marina. This will be an amazing experience as the house, although relatively close to the neighbouring town, has a feeling of isolation as it is amidst the trees, by itself in the forestry.

None of this would be possible without them first completing the PADI Open water course which set on the path to further developing their skills. They all took the course in the South Wales area near Cardiff, Swansea and Newport. These basic skills allowed them to develop and engage with opportunities such as the experience they will soon undertake.
