Welcome to Bubbles Dive Centres first blog of 2012, since we closed for the season last year a lot has been happening in preparation for what will be our very first full season since we got our licence last July. We certainly haven’t been sitting around waiting for the new season.
New compressor and building
As we were closing things were hotting up with our licence for the compressor and I am pleased to say that not only will we offering full air filling up to 300 bar and Nitrox but we will also have a large new building in addition to our Dive Centre that will be used for all the air filling as well as kit storage, washing and cleaning down as well as servicing and maintenance operations. This will also be done with a new environmentally friendly process that reduces the amount of fresh water used. We will be monitoring this throughout the season to show just how much can be saved and once we have all the information we will be publishing the results in the hope that other Dive Centres will follow suit. This is another step in our mission to protect and improve the environment.
The very best team
The best thing we have to announce for this season is our team and what a team we have. It has taken us a long time to carefully select everyone this year and ensure that everybody is committed as we are to our policy of caring. Details of our new team can be found at http://www.diving-gozo.com/about-us The thing for us that was so important with this team was making sure that everyone had the same passion for protecting the marine environment that we have and without doubt we have the best team to do that on board. I know some people are disappointed that they couldn’t join us this season, the amount of people applying was amazing but at the end of the day we chose the right team for our customers.
It seems a million miles from where we were this time last year, you may recall the problems we had during the application process to get our Dive Centre licence, that is all behind us now and as we look forward to this season, it’s going to present itself with some quite different challenges. We will continue to offer only high quality personalised diving for our customers in small groups to ensure everyone has the best time possible diving on the islands of Gozo, Malta and Comino.
More marine conservation projects
Donna with the help of Nana will be planning and putting into place even bigger and better Marine conservation projects and we will continue to develop our relationship with PADI’s Project AWARE foundation (http://www.projectaware.org/) particularly in our underwater cleanup programmes. I still can’t quite believe we won 3rd prize in Project AWARE’s global underwater cleanup campaign last year. We may not emulate that this year but it doesn’t matter really what matters is that we can make a difference to the diving in and around these wonderful islands and that we will definitely do.
Continuing our philosophy
The philosophy of Bubbles Dive Centre will only be successful if our customers support what we offer and like our approach to customer service and diving generally. The feedback so far has been fantastic we and we are absolutely convinced this is how you want to dive in Gozo, so we promise to continue to build on what we started last year and make your diving with us the best it can possibly be and working together to make Gozo one of the top dive destinations in the world for marine protection and low impact diving. We already have so many customers booking again with us for this we, we are so pleased thank you.
Thankyou everyone and we look forward to welcoming you to Gozo’s most caring Dive Centre
Dave, Donna and all the Bubbles team
