There is a "swim test" which must be passed before you can take tuition. I would suggest that you contact your nearest dive school and at least do what you are able to and improve your swimming as much as possible. Being under the water in the Caribbean is so wonderful that it is worth putting yourself out to get to that stage. But to really enjoy even snorkeling you have to be happy with and in the water...Good luck ...Neil Dow.

Lean to swim first before you think about scuba diving.

All I knew was that the ships were luxurious and this was the top river cruise line to sail on, so expectations were high and I was not disappointed.Upon arrival in Amsterdam, I was met by my own chauffeur – which is when I knew then the trip was going to a be a fabulous few days. The car I was driven in was almost like a limou...

Well, as winter quickly sets in… It can only mean one thing- It’s holiday time!Something that I always make sure of every year is that I get away during the winter season at least once. I think it is so important to get some Vitamin D and wake up to the sunshine when our days at home are so short, dark and damp. This November, I have two weeks off work and I have 2 holidays to look forward to. Starting with The Gambia and finishing with a rural retreat in Mid Wales!Everybody keeps...
