    Afternoon

    I'm off to Sorrento, Italy late August and wondered if anyone had dived there. Only doing my deep speciality two days before at Stoney which would give me my AOW. Just wondered what the dives were like?

    You will be able to answer the "When did you last dive?" at the dive centre with "two days ago". I managed "last Tuesday" on my last holiday, whereas most of the others were several months. Take it easy as a new AOW, much still to learn.

    Trust me, i'm under no illusion that I'll be experienced and won't be doing any diving beyond my limits.

    Most dive centres will buddy you up with someone appropriate and it'll be lead by the DiveMaster. Most Med holiday dives are shallow bimbles that aren't challenging and in busy centres they're very used to handling tourists' needs. In my limited Spanish (yes, not Italy) experience, you will be closely watched and managed until you can show your competence.

    Am off to Sorrento in about 2 weeks for a non-diving holiday with the missus but she normally lets me j=have a day off diving if so I will come back and let you know if there is anything decent around.

    Thanks Iain. When i mentioned diving with to my Mrs, she said that there won't be a lot of time as we are only going for a week. I told her that after a year of diving in stoney cove I'll make time.

    Do let us know what you find out -- off there in October for a week. Non-diving holiday, but could sneak in a cheeky one!
