Why Disabled Diving

Since becoming a professional diver in 2015, Aimee has always wanted to branch out into specialist diving.  What drove Aimee into disabled diving was due to a personal experience, where one of her childhood friends became paralysed in a car accident when she was in college.  The concept that once people bound by certain limitations, are put into a set of dive gear and placed under the water and can move up, down, left, right at their own free will is what turned Aimee’s passion for DDI into something bigger.  Aimee trained with Mark Slingo back in 2016 in Ipswich, England. During her luxury one on one training with Mark, she learnt what it takes to be a DDI Instructor and will progress with us throughout the years to come. We hope she will enjoy her time with DDI and stay for a long time.
