Comments I have been diving with Divetech almost since they opened 9 years ago. I am now 67 and I've had a shoulder replacement and a back operation (last year). Without the help of the staff I could never have enjoyed my diving. They wrer wonderful. I made 8 dives in 4 days. I would sit on the platform and the staff would help me into my gear and after the dive I'd take my gear off in the water.
I am an experienced diver - many years I dove with a dry suit and doubles on the New York shipwrecks (Ive been diving 35 years), so I'm greatful to Divetech for giving me another wonderful dive vacation and I look forward to next June!
(I no longer carry a 35mm camera and strobe as they are too heavy for me to manage in the airports these days)
