Like my wife Lisa I had a try dive in 2017 and got the buzz of being underwater. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t tried it sooner! I was only on my third dive ever on my Open Water course and I made a statement “I want a Dive Centre”... a mad pipe dream at the time. But that bug has grown over the years of diving in various countries and meeting and making great friends in a fabulous community that is Scuba Diving.
I am now very fortunate to have bought that original dream to life by opening Sirens Dive Centre in 2020 here in Cyprus with my wife Lisa, and with amazing help and support from Dawn and Norman who still help out when required. We have now grown, and in our fourth season and have added more incredible, passionate team members in Jody our Master Instructor, Shaun Staff Instructor and Leo a Dive Master. The whole team share our obsession to bring diving and the sea to others of all ages. We hope you join us and get bitten by the Scuba bug!
I hated the sea, never ventured in further than knee deep. Then had a try dive in Mexico in 2017, followed by a DSD in Cyprus later that year. Unfortunately I had problems with my ears (couldn’t equalise) so couldn’t carry on.
Richard, my husband, did his OWD then AOWD and for the next 18 months and various holidays I sat on the boat/beach while Richard dived. We took our youngest two children to Egypt, they did a DSD and loved it. On our next family holiday the kids wanted to do their OWD, so after much deliberation I decided if you can’t beat them, join them. I bought a mask especially for ear problems and away I went.
Along with the kids I passed my OWD the day after my 51st birthday. Richard had wanted a dive centre since he first tried diving, I was starting to feel the same. I say you're never too old for a new adventure.....and last year I became a Dive Master. HAPPY BUBBLES!
