We just wanted to give a quick update on what is happening with Whitstable Scuba and what we plan to do moving forward.
Firstly, we hope that everyone reading this is well and that you, your family, friends and loved ones are coping with these crazy times. We hope that you’re keeping busy and staying fit and healthy. It is good to talk and to communicate so please feel free to contact us or others in the diving industry – there are plenty of forums/social media groups out there which can keep you in touch with divers around the globe.
We made a conscious decision very early on to not market or promote our services. We felt that it was inappropriate in light of so many people struggling with employment issues or even illness.
We feel that now, after a number of weeks of lockdown, is a good time for us to ‘resurface’ and start offering our services again. We cannot wait to get back into the water and are starting to plan trips, albeit very loosely at the moment!
We are also very aware of the absolute need for people to do something to keep busy which is another reason that we feel that we can actually offer something worthwhile and of value.
Importantly, we have received a number of emails from people that want something to do and see this as a perfect time to do some home study – what better thing to do than complete a Scuba course online and have the practical parts to look forward to.
We also want to acknowledge our gratitude to all the people that are working to keep our society going – public services, care workers, shop workers, delivery drivers etc
In light of this – we are offering a 20% discount on the following PADI courses;
Sign up to an e-Learning course – you can do the theory online in your own time and then when we’re able to, we will arrange the practical parts of the course with you.
We can take bank transfers as this will be the easiest way for everybody.
YOU NEED TO EMAIL US – WE WILL THEN EMAIL YOU A CODE – YOU USE THIS CODE TO ACCESS THE ONLINE PADI MATERIALS – YOU CAN THEN WORK AT YOUR OWN PACE
We want to reassure you that as a PADI dive centre, we have always operated in ‘leisure hours’ as all of us at Whitstable Scuba have day jobs. This means that ultimately, our operation is not under direct threat of going out of business because of what is going on and that if you start a course with us, we will be able to complete it with you.
Get in touch on 01227 750 021 or email email@example.com to discuss which course is best for you or to make a booking.
