Comdean  Diving & Watersports Ltd. was based in the Midlands,  we had 3 shops,  Solihull, Dudley and
Cheltenham.  From these shops we operated 3 diver training schools and 1 instructor training centre.  We were
arguably the largest training centre in the UK.

We have been in the diving industry all of our working lives,  we sold our previous company and retired early to
France in 2004,  we have been approached by Gite owners to start a diving company in the Charente Maritime,  to
this end we have tied in with ‘Hidden Diving’  a UK based diving company we still have an interest in to start which  enables us to teach people to dive in France.

We are fully insured and qualified to train people up to Instructor level,  we also offer medic first aid courses for the
workplace and medic first aid paediatric courses for the workplace. All of the qualifications issued through are recognised worldwide and can be used to achieve  further diving qualifications anywhere in the

A bit about us!  We have been partners for the last 22 years,  when we retired it was to enjoy the good life,  we have
now done that and feel the need to do something more,  Diving is all we really know,  we thoroughly enjoy teaching
people to dive, so we decided to talk to one of our associates in the UK about starting up in France,  and here we
are,  we have invested in a compressor and 6 sets of diving equipment and are really looking forward to the summer
when we can start up our business again.
