All about our diving school in Cyprus

Our philosophy

 

Swiss quality meets Cypriot hospitality!

 

Quality

Your and our security is of course the top priority for us! Safety includes quality equipment, a high-quality introduction to the underwater world and well-trained diving guides and instructors who contribute to your safety through their experience and are always at your side.
 

Hospitality

With all the safety and quality measures, one shouldn't forget what is the main point of diving; the fun! We do everything to ensure that you feel comfortable with us and consider us your diving friends! Transport to and from the hotel, refreshing snacks and small groups are just a few of the factors that will contribute to your well-being. We love diving and we love life in Cyprus and we want to pass this on to you!

 

Environment
The sea and the environment are not just our workplaces but our life givers. There is no life without the sea and therefore we do everything we can to protect the environment as well as possible.

 

PADI 5 Star Divecentre in Pernera

Our diving school "The Cyprus Diving Centre" is located in Pernera right next to Protaras and was taken over by us in 2019. The diving school has a separate theory room and its own small shop. You can also find drinks and a cozy outdoor space here. Thanks to the restaurant Tipsy Turtle, which is directly connected to the diving school, you can end the diving day with us as well.

 

TEAM

We are not just work colleagues but like a family! We love our job and above all love to show this to our guests and pass it on. We share one great love: the sea.
A good and pleasant climate is very important to us, as is quality and safety. This starts with happy and satisfied employees. For this reason, we attach great importance to offering a pleasant climate for our diving instructors and divemasters and, of course, fair wages.

Divers as eco-sinners

We all have to admit; we divers don't leave the best ecological footprint. We love to travel to the most remote places, we need equipment from all over the world, sometimes we drive from dive site to dive site and we love to go on a liveaboard. We take this problem very seriously and have often questioned the whole thing. Well - what should we do? It would probably be best to close the diving school and prohibit diving in general. But this is out of the question for us. Because we divers are also important ambassadors for the environment and we can only be that if we regularly convince ourselves of the beauty of the underwater world and see the problems with our own eyes. Many people have already started to live more environmentally friendly after they have started diving and this is exactly where we want to start. We want to make our contribution to the environment with the following implementations:

Education
We as a diving school train people how to dive. But for us, the training doesn't stop there. We are firmly convinced that the training does not only include diving itself, but also knowledge of our environment. Especially our water cycle, of course. For this reason, we also integrate a training block "Diving and Environment" into the diving training to show every diver how and why you have to protect our seas, rivers and lakes.


Sustainability
We are constantly working on making our diving school more sustainable. This is not always easy, especially in Cyprus, but we are convinced that we will achieve a good result here and hopefully set a good example for other diving schools. To achieve this, we are working towards the PADI program "Green Star", which we would like to achieve by the end of 2020.

How can we make our diving school more sustainable?
 

  •     No PET bottles or disposable plastic products

  •     Use new technologies to save electricity

  •     Keep paper consumption as low as possible

  •     Education and books in electronic form

  •     Minimize water consumption

 

Act actively

Unfortunately, there is already a lot of garbage floating in the sea and there is always garbage on the coast. That is why we regularly organize clean-ups, especially in the off-season, to free the sea and land of garbage. Why especially in the low season? During the high season, waste disposal works relatively well and the beaches around us are kept very clean. As soon as the off-season begins, however, you can clearly see that waste disposal no longer works as well.

But we don't just collect garbage from clean-ups. All of our diving instructors and dive guides collect rubbish from the dives and take it to the diving school where we separate and dispose of it. Of course, we always like to give every diver a net to collect garbage. Incidentally, this is also an excellent tarring exercise when diving.

We support the seas!

Oceansupport Switzerland ist ein Online-Shop in der Schweiz, der neben den Weltbekannten 4Ocean Bracelets auch diverse Produkte als Plastikalternativen anbietet und so dazu beiträgt, dass weniger Müll in unseren Meeren landet. Jede Unterstützung zählt bei dieser Mission. Denn auch wir in der Schweiz sind sehr stark von den Weltmeeren abhängig. Wusstest du zum Beispiel, dass nicht nur der Wald uns Sauerstoff liefert sondern jeder 3 Atemzug Sauerstoff aus dem Ozean enthält?
