No Dive Centre Is an Island. In this new piece, written especially for Gaia Discovery and adapted from a chapter in his book Scuba Professional, Simon Pridmore reveals that running a successful dive centre or resort, especially in a remote location, involves far more than just taking people diving. Among other things, you have to integrate local residents in your dive operation at ALL levels and focus your conservation efforts on people, not just fish and reefs.
Author Simon Pridmore has written a new book packed with valuable tips and expert advice giving you unprecedented access to the secrets of dive professionals and technical divers, knowledge that you can use to develop your skills and become a safer, more confident and more capable diver. Scuba Confidential - An Insider's Guide to Becoming a Better Diver is currently available worldwide via Amazon in paperback and e-book versions.
