Emma Hewitt, Regional manager paid us a visit a few days ago and presented us with our 20 year award as a PADI Dive Centre.
It was well receive by Course Director Robert Varns and Carol Varns.
Hard to imagine all those years ago when we started out back in Southborough that we would still be teaching and serving divers.
In these years we have met many new friends and aquaintences.
Taught literally thousands of divers to either start diving or taking them to new levels of experience.
Of these we have gained new friends. Some of them have been with us throughout our 20 years of teaching.
We have seen 3 generations of divers coming through. Various divers have met through diving with us, got married and now their children are also diving.
It gives us enormous pleasure to see all our customers, to assist them and give then expert advice.
Looking forward to a great future ahead and seeing the Dive Machine go to newer heights.
A huge thank you goes out to every customer, also present and past staff in helping us reach this prostigious 20 year achievement.
Hope to be seeing you all again real soon.

The open water students did extremely well despite poor visibility, including one who has immediately started his Advanced Open Water course.
The Wreck speciality divers worked well mapping 2 wrecks and practicing laying wreck lines both externally and internally inside the wrecks. We was surrounded by hundreds of perch and also spotted 5 pike on the dives to add to the enjoyment.
Eloise completed her Peak Performance Buoyancy course and was able to shed a further 2 kg in the process.
Once again the staff of Dive Machine excelled in their hard work and effort making it a supoerb weekend of diving.
Roll on Friday where we will be doing one morning dive followed by a great air show at Eastbourne Air Display.
We have 2 late cancellations so there are 2 spaces now available for the 18th August. If you wish to join us for a great day out in the channel email or ring us at the dive centre. Tel:01732773553.
Another superb 2 pool sessions this weekend.
Extremely busy with Open Water divers, Drysuit orientations, ReActivates, DSD’s and seals.
We are in for a bumper weekend next week with 12 divers going into Open Water for their qualifying dives. Here’s wishing them all the best of success with their training courses and qualifications.
Most of all a huge thank you to the Dive Machine staff making the training a great success.
Well done to everyone in the team.
Also well done to Becky Winton. As a new EFR Instructor Becky has now taught her first EFR course with James.
Becky has also completed her First Aid at Work Instructor and will be teaching First at at work courses next month.
It was a pleasure being a body for his skills deevelopment and scenarios.
I felt I was well looked after. Let’s hope you don’t need to put the skills to the test in real medical issues however if you do you are well equipped now to deal with anything should it happen.
Shame the boat dive was blown out last night with the wind picking up.
Still we all had a fab 60 minute dive in holborough instead.
Next Boat Dive
We have another evening boat dive arranged for Tuesday 18th April. This will be a drift dive on the Brighton Ledges with skipper Steve Johnson on Channel Diver.
Meet time to load is 5pm at Brighton Marina ropes away 5.30pm. Depth will be 12-14 metres.
You will need SMB’s and torches in addition to standard kit. The leges are abound with fish life and there’s always a huge amount of species to be seen on every dive there. Suitable for Open Water diver and above.
