£8000 dive trip up for grabs at DIVE 2019

Published

on

Every year a trip to the NEC Birmingham to enjoy a day out at the Dive Show brings with it the chance of a much bigger dive trip further down the line.

And the price of admission to DIVE 2019 on 26/27 October will be repaid many times over for the visitor who wins the Grand Draw prize of an £8000 dive trip for two to Indonesia.

This year it’s long-established Regaldive that has organised the prize holiday. And for DIVE 2019 it has arranged an exceptional diving holiday in the Coral Triangle, in partnership with Malaysia Airlines and Emperor Divers.

Included are return flights from London plus seven nights on the brand new 48m liveaboard Emperor Harmoni, including diving and all meals. Transfers and airport taxes are taken care of too.

Emperor Harmoni is one of only a select few liveaboards in this region to have two engines, accommodate 20 guests and offer up to three dives a day and free nitrox. Itineraries cover magical places such as Komodo, Raja Ampat, Banda Islands, Alor & East Flores.

The lucky winners will experience the best of Indonesia both under water and topside on this amazing diving holiday, says the Regaldive team.

The UK’s biggest event for divers, the DIVE 2019 weekend will feature around 200 companies offering diving gear, holidays and services. Opening times are 9.30-6.00 on Saturday 26 October and 9.30-5.00 on Sunday 27 October.

For a limited period only, Early-Bird 2-4-1 tickets are available. Get two adult tickets (and pick up a FREE Show Guide worth £2.50 on the door) for £14.50 with this Special Early-Bird Offer.

Enter EARLYBIRD2-4-1 in the “If you have a promo code please enter here” box and click “GO”. In the next window select 2 adult tickets next to the Gold Star option when selecting tickets.

Tickets will ONLY be available from the DIVE 2019 website through Ticket Factory.

Fourth Element X Sea Shepherd

Published

on

This year on Black Friday, fourth element announced their new partnership with Sea Shepherd, encouraging people to move away from mindless purchasing and to opt-in to supporting something powerful.

For 40 years Sea Shepherd, a leading non-profit organisation, has been patrolling the high seas with the sole mission to protect and conserve the world’s oceans and marine wildlife. They work to defend all marine wildlife, from whales and dolphins, to sharks and rays, to fish and krill, without exception.

Inspired by Sea Shepherd’s mission, fourth element have created a collection of fourth element X Sea Shepherd limited edition products for ocean lovers and protectors, with 15% of every sale going to the Sea Shepherd fund to help continue to drive conservation efforts globally.

“Working with Sea Shepherd gives fourth element the opportunity to join forces with one of the largest active conservation organisations in the world to try to catalyse change in people’s attitudes and behaviour. Fourth Element’s products are designed, developed and packaged with the intention of minimising our impact on the ocean environment, and with this partnership, we will be supporting the work of Sea Shepherd, in particular in their work on dealing with the twin threats of Ghost fishing nets and plastic pollution.”

Dive entrepreneur Clare Dutton voted one to watch!

Published

on

Director of Duttons Divers, Clare Dutton, has been voted as one of the top 100 female entrepreneurs to watch in the UK, a huge achievement, emphasising her dedication and commitment to the dive industry and growth of the business. 

Clare started diving at the age of 18 and, once qualified as an instructor, decided to start her own business. Having no funds to do so, she took out a business loan to purchase three sets of equipment and a trailer to travel the UK and teach. With a garden shed as a storage unit and her bathroom as a drying room, Duttons Divers was born!

Since then, Clare became the youngest PADI Course Director at the time, and has developed the business into a well established and renowned UK dive chain. With two dive centres, Vivian Quarry, Llanberis and Hafan Marina, Pwllheli, and two dive boats, Little Viv and Sea Quest, the business offers high quality equipment and facilities to offer bespoke training and guided dives.

Clare says: “I am extremely honoured to be selected as 1 of 100 female entrepreneurs in the UK. I have devoted a lot of time to develop the business since starting, and have always striven to ensure that it is at the highest level it can be, whether that be acquiring top quality equipment, having our own facilities or to just showcase North Wales and the amazing diving that we have here. It’s great for this to be recognised and fuel the passion to develop this even further.

“Its definitely not been easy, and I am sure it never will be because I will always want it to develop and not just settle. The ridiculously late finishing, finding out who your ‘friends’ are, working out accounts, marketing, and every other element of a business is massively stressful at times… but then stepping back and seeing what it has all achieved makes it worthwhile. I am very excited for the future of the business and where it is headed.”
