Look who's picked up more awards.
Well what's all this about?
It was a surprise to us also. Our dive center and staff received awards from two different companies in the same week.
Three of our permanent instructors received new achievement awards form PADI for the number of PADI certifications they had completed last year on top of the BSAC certifications they had also done.
Both Karen and Alec had exceeded over 100 PADI certifications each, and Gareth had certified over 50 divers which is on par with Karen and Alec considering he only joined us in June, half way through the year.
PADI is awarding these instructors for their continued efforts and dedication to diver education.
It's a coincidence that PADI call the award an Elite Instructor (but they are). To us and the diving students, it's not the number of certifications that make them elite, but the high level of diver instruction they put into their teaching of the sport they love so much.
On top of that, Tripadvisor awarded Elite Diving a certificate of Excellence. This prestigious award rocognises businesses that consistently earn top ratings from Tripadvisor travelers. So thank you one and all for that. Again it's you, our elite diving family that has made the effort for us and it's appreciation like that gives us the drive to keep giving you such a good time when your here diving with us in Sharm El Sheikh. It helps that all the staff enjoy doing what they do also! ;-)
