About 17 years ago my wife and I were sitting on a beach on our honeymoon in Antigua and we saw a group of people climbing into a small boat loaded with dive kit. I said to my wife, "I wouldn't mind having a go at that" and she replied, "I've done that in Australia!". That settled it, I was off down the beach to the Dive Shack and after a 40 minute pool session that afternoon, I discovered I could breathe underwater!! The next day we were both on that small boat and after a 30 minute dive in the clearest water on a beautiful little reef I was hooked! A year later during my final few months in HM Forces I went down to Falmouth to the Cornish Diving Centre and did the PADI Open Water and Advanced Diver courses and loved every minute of it!
