A Special Thank You25 Feb 2012
It’s said that once you get to dive with us, the bug never leaves you. Guests describe it as a slightly frantic feeling that strikes you once you book your flight to Kuredu, continues with the elaborate dive site reviews that you entertain your friends with and finishes with watching the webcam the night before you fly out.
More than 800 of our divers suffer from it and yet they still return every year. We’re flattered to have Silvia, Josef and Alan diving with us for their tenth time as we speak and we’re glad that we can express our thanks with free diving. Silvia visited us for the first time in 1995 and has done over 70 dives around Kuredu. Josef fell in love with the diving here in 2004 and already has 100 dives with us under his belt, the best one being a KFFC-Peak channel crossing on scooters last year with Sebastjan.
Silvia and Josef have been diving a lot with Hermann, our 18 times repeater, these last couple of weeks. We were happy (and a bit jealous too!) to hear that Hermann has dived Kuredu Express 50 times as of now!
The third 10 time repeater guest who always reminds us of the importance of preserving the environment that we live and work in is Alan. He’s been actively involved in fundraising for WaterAid, an international charity aimed at improving access to safe water, hygene and sanitation in the world’s poorest countries. After completing EnduroAfrica 2008 (accompanied by Princes William and Harry) and last year’s EnduroHimalaya, he now participated in a motor bike trip through Cambodia and raising funds for WaterAid.
Another attempt at raising awareness about sustainable water management is the 2012 Alchem Desk Calendar. A big thank you to Alan for the calendars that he left here, the ‘Every water picture tells a story’ (including our Shipyard!) concept seems to be very catchy for many guests.
You can support Alan at achieving his goal by donating through his JustGiving page.
It’s always flattering to see a familiar face enter the door and we’re looking forward to providing the homey feeling that they have at Prodivers in the future.
