Kingstown, St. Vincent, March 20 — A local diving outfit, Indigo Dive, has been recognised as the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) Education Centre of the Month.
“This is huge, not only for my company, but it puts St. Vincent and the Grenadines in the global spotlight too,” Kay Wilson, owner of Indigo Watersports said in a release.
“Winning this award, within a year of achieving PADI 5 Star Resort status is an incredible achievement, especially taking into account that our team is 100 per cent Vincentian, all whom have worked, and continue to work extremely hard to reach their goals of becoming PADI dive professionals — Dive Masters, Dive Instructors, Master Scuba Diver Trainers, PADI Staff Instructors and Emergency First Response Instructors,” she further said.
