By: Blue Ocean Diving
MAIDSTONE, U.K. - Jan. 27, 2022 - PRLog -- Blue Ocean Diving, with its 7,500+ member Scubaholics Dive Club, has been running UK and worldwide dive holidays for almost 20 years.

Providing premier training for students at every level of diving, from beginner to Technical Master Instructor, Blue Ocean Diving is looking forward to re-establishing its popular and much-loved dive trips.

Its consistently high standards of teaching has earned it the prestigious achievement as a PADI 5-star Instructor Development Centre, with an exceptional and greatly respected reputation worldwide.

BOD founder and one of the first PADI Course Directors to be awarded the prestigious platinum rating, Ryby Stonehouse, welcomes the lifting of travel restrictions.

"We wanted to prove to our customers that although travel was harder, it was not impossible. We showed we could continue to run scuba diving holidays, and also deal with any changes to requirements at any short notice.

"Throughout the pandemic and with all its disruption, not a single customer has lost a single penny due to enforced cancellation or rescheduling."

With this assurance and confidence in their past handling of the pandemic, Blue Ocean Diving is excited about the future, especially now that restrictions worldwide are lifting.

"To be able to introduce and encourage people's love of scuba diving in warmer climates is life-changing in so many ways.

"Not only do you have the opportunity to discover a whole new world, but the social togetherness and support of the diving community creates another family network for people.

"After the levels of isolation many of us have experienced, we look forward to bringing our dive family back together again and travelling together once more."
