IN DEEP: Interest soaring in dive lessons

AFTER years of a steady decline in the worldwide recreational diving industry, growth is now the trend.

At a recent conference in Italy, Scuba Schools International - one of the world's largest dive retail organisations - confirmed that for the first time in many years, learn-to-dive courses had increased.

In Australia, many retail dive businesses did not survive the global financial crisis and those that did were burdened at the same time by an unrelenting workplace health and safety crackdown across Australia.

Thankfully, those times have passed.

Retail dive businesses as well as dive charter operators are optimistic about their future.
