Army Cadets Group tonight. Here’s what one of the leaders - Adam had to say.
“Thursday 20th February, we took a group of Essex Army cadets along to Blackshots Leisure centre for a scuba diving experience with David and his team of instructors. They provided a friendly and professional environment for the cadets, taking time to explain all the necessary procedures and safety aspects of Scuba diving. The Army instructors could take a back seat for once as the Dive Mania team took over.
Most of the cadets had no diving experience but were quickly put at ease during the pre-dive briefing and thanks to the high instructor to student ratio in the water, were soon able to start enjoying their first dive. All of them want to do this again.I'd like to thank David and the team who made this an enjoyable expereince for all the cadets.”
It was great to see you all and we hope to see you again.Thanks to all the team down last night. If you’re interested in a group booking then please get in touch.
