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.
Our next evening wreck dive is Tuesday 22nd August leaving Eastbourne Sovereign Harbour (North) at 17:45 sharp.
Divers will need to meet, to board the boat (Channel Diver) for 17:00.
We will be diving “The Duchess”.
The wreck lies in max depth of 20 metres and stands proud of the seabed by approx 6 metres. She was also known as “The Duchess of Fife” A 553 ton paddle steamship built in 1899 and sank in 1917, almost a hundred years ago. She sank following a collision with a destroyer. The Duchess is 177ft long and a beam of 27ft. She lies on a sands sea bed and now stands 6 metres proud of the sea bed. The “Duchess” still looks like a ship. At the time she was carrying governmental stores. It’s a worthwhile dive full of fish life, tom pot blennies, whiting, bib, conger, lobsters edible and spider crabs, this makes a superb dive for anyone of Advanced Open Water level, equivalent and above.
Another excellent weekend in the pool with new divers starting out their first adventures in the underwater world with basic Open Water skills training.
Thank you to Helen, Kevin, Colin, Becky, Ed, James and Robert for all the superb pool work in assisting the students.
Also giving them some very positive encouragement along the way.

This is one of our popular Eastbourne dives and certainly my personal favourite.
The 6.610 ton P & O Liner Oceana was built in 1888, She was 468ft long and had a Beam of 52ft. Whilst en route from London to Bombay with 40 passenger and a complement of 210 crew she was sunk on 16th March 1912 after colliding with the Pisagna, a 2850-ton Germen 4 masted steel barque. The Pisagna herself did not sink but was towed into Dover for repairs. Nine of the Oceana’s crew were drowned when their lifeboat capsized.
This has got to be one of the most interesting wrecks on the south coast, She rests in only 24mtrs of water at low tide and in places stands 10mtrs high.
The wreck rests on an even keel with the bows being upright and mostly intact, as you work your way back towards the stern all the superstructure has collapsed down but the sides of the vessel are still ship shape. As you get towards the engine room you come across an amazing sight, there are 4 boilers sat in pairs slap bang in the middle of the wreck, these huge round lumps of metal still in perfect condition if sunk only yesterday. Around the boilers there are big troughs full of scallop shell, mostly empty now. As you pass the boilers you are met by this huge upright structure which stands some 10mtrs high, it is infact the ships 7000hp triple expansion engines.
Every diver will find something of interest on this dive, Whether it will be the sea life of crabs, lobsters, scallops or the many species of fish that have made it their home, or portholes that are still in place or maybe even one off the silver bars & gold ingots that were left over from the ships cargo of £747.110 worth of gold and silver ingots when the ship was salvaged.
The Oceana sits on a gravel seabed and usually has good visibility.
