Welcome to the dive hub! The choices we take when we go diving can make a difference – the dive hub will show you how. For latest news and views see the blog and follow me on Twitter @thedivehub & facebook
We hope to be a trusted online destination for responsible diving news, thought-provoking content, case studies, tips and resources in responsible diving so you don’t have to go through dozens of websites. Here you can find out what is good and what is not so good, and see what responsible diving is all about.
By making our choices count when we go on a dive trip, we can make a difference, one dive at a time!
Who benefits from responsible diving?
- YOU! (the divers): there are loads of reasons why responsible diving can create a much richer diving experience, the dive hub will explain how
- environment: through adopting responsible tourism principles above and below water, we can reduce the negative impact on environment and do more to protect the natural resources that diving depends on
- local communities: by employing local people in dive centres and accomodation, the money for your dive trip enters the local economy. Local projects to educate, train and empower people make a huge difference
These are just some of the reasons why applying responsible tourism principles to diving is a brilliant opportunity to do more to conserve the marine environments and benefit local communities, whilst at the same time improving the quality of experiences for the divers themselves. Its possible to improve diving for everyone and everything involved, from sponges, coral and sharks, to boat operators, local communities and divers.
The dive hub provides a one stop shop for divers who are interested in how their diving activities can make a difference to protect and conserve the ocean, and the communities who depend on it.
