A Great Success

CORAL BAY BEACH CLEAN-UP from September 23rd 2006

Last Saturday the biggest ever Beach Clean-Up in the Coral Bay area took place with a fantastic outcome. Aristo Developers sponsored 300 hats for all the participants. The meeting time was at 9:30 AM and by 10:30 AM all the hats had been given to enthusiastic people participating in this important event. The Village Inn delivered the water bottles which were greatly appreciated by everyone helping to make our beaches cleaner.

The result is astonishing and the Peyia Municipality has promptly removed and disposed of all the collected rubbish bags and other materials.

The area cleaned was from the Coral Beach Hotel to the little fisheries harbour of St. Georges. Everybody has shown a huge effort to collect as much as possible. More than 800 rubbish bags have been filled with all sorts of refuse. Many unusual items such as a bicycle, an old safe, various oil drums as well as a large number of fishing nets and hooks have been collected. The American Academy Paphos alone has come with around one hundred students, parents and teachers.

In the evening various beach cleaners have met up at the Village Inn for a well deserved and entertaining pint of beer or glass of wine.

We would like to thank everybody very much for all the effort displayed during that day and all the hard work by collecting so much rubbish. Hopefully we were able to create a bit of awareness to keep our beautiful beaches cleaner

We also would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the sponsors of this event. Without them the event would not have been such a success.

Thanks to the Mayor of Peyia, the Municipality of Peyia, Aristo Developers, the American Academy, Europrint, and the Village Inn in Kisonerga.

A big thank you goes to Rock FM which has played the advertising spots for days, as well as the many interviews before and after the event.

This was just the first of many Beach Clean-Ups and we hope that we will be seeing you all again for the next big one, which will be even bigger.

Thanks again to all of you for making a big difference

Stuart McGinn / England / PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor

I did my IDC at Coral Bay Divers in July 2006 and was privileged to be a part of the first IDC conducted there.

The course was challenging and a lot of work but I had an amazing time and enjoyed every minute of it. Although a new dive centre, Coral Bay Divers' facilities to second to none - the IDC classroom is large, air-conditioned and stuffed full of enough audio/visual presentation equipment and diving equipment to satisfy anyone! If you'd forgotten a training aid in any presentation, you merely had to look around and somewhere on the wall was something you could use...and then pretend you had included it all along...!

The staff were a great help to us and the Course Director, Jurg Dahler, can  only be described as a credit to the diving industry. Jurg was an excellent  CD and never ran out of pearls of diving-related wisdom during the 3 weeks  that I was there. 

I would recommend an IDC with Jurg to anyone who's serious about getting the  best training possible and having fun at the same time.

As for the IE (It's Easy) weekend, I took one in Whittlesey, UK in August 2006.  Although the water was slightly colder, the visibility was appalling and it rained  every day I passed and actually had a good time as well. There were no hidden  surprises and nothing Jurg hadn't prepared me for, except for the fact that it's a tad  easier than the IDC!

Coming from a business training background myself the IDC conducted by Jurg was a refreshing addition to the professional skills set I already had. Jurg, devoted to promote the philosophy of diving made the theoretical part of the studies into intense disputes over the materials. These discussions were inspiring and made understanding and studying simple and enjoyable. Even during the hottest times (when the air conditioner couldn't take the heat any more) the high energy in the classroom kept us focused on the training presentations.

 It looks like leading by example is an inborn ingredient of Jurg's character. All the skills and  tasks both underwater and while running the dive centre operations were looking  effortless and worth copying and implementing in ones own business.
'Make it look easy!'  was not just a result of countless repetition; it was the result of mastery. And this, by the  way, was visible in how Jurg's whole team was functioning. 

To become the best learn from the best! Jurg, you are definitely  my model of excellence to align to.

Welcome to Coral Bay Divers

The first PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre in Coral Bay

As a PADI 5 Star IDC Centre, Coral Bay Divers offers the full range of PADI career development programs. Understanding the PADI System as well as the needs of the diving industry for true dive professionals makes Coral Bay Divers your choice for a head start in the exciting world of diving.

Our Instructor Development Courses are run over a period of nine days to ensure comfortable timing of all subjects. The IDC is conducted in a state of the art classroom providing a stress free and conducive learning environment. The relaxed atmosphere enables you to focus on the mastery of the modern teaching methodology. The classroom is equipped with the latest teaching aids such as projectors, laptop computers as well as the required PADI materials and diving equipment.

As a PADI Dive Master you are already a very important member of an instructional team. During the IDC you will be making the transition to become an effective dive educator in understanding the whole PADI System and how to teach all PADI programs.

It is important that you fully understand what you have to do to complete an IDC successfully. As with any other PADI programs you have to come fully prepared meaning that you are comfortable with the required dive theory, your diving skills as well as, general dive etiquette. If you feel that you need to work on any of these, Coral Bay Divers also offers an IDC Prep program. This means that you will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of workshops in dive theory as well as dive skills. Participating in these workshops does not mean that you do not have to prepare yourself; it just means that any issues and questions you may have will be clarified in order to achieve the best possible result in the IDC and IE and you have the opportunity to practice under the guidance of an experienced Instructor.

At Coral Bay Divers we also offer the full range of Career Development Courses. You can start this program at any level. To participate in a PADI IDC you must have been a qualified diver for at least six months and have 100 logged dives.

Successful completion of the IDC will allow you to participate in an Instructor Examination (IE). The IE is a two day program and is conducted by a PADI Examiner. During these two days you will be evaluated in dive theory knowledge, confined-, open water and knowledge development teaching presentations, rescue ability, dive skills and general conduct as a dive professional. The IE is the natural progression for any aspiring Instructor, and we will make sure that you have no problems getting over this little bump in the road before you start teaching your own divers.

The IDCs at Coral Bay Divers are taught by Jurg Dahler, a multilingual, very experienced, award winning Course Director. Jurg has been a PADI Course Director since March 2002 and has since then taught many IDCs. Jurg has taught full time in the diving industry since the early nineties and this has taken him to many fantastic dive locations such as Kenya, the Caribbean, Mexico, Switzerland the UK and of course here in Cyprus as well as many other locations. Jurg teaches ten IDCs a year in Cyprus, Switzerland, Mexico and Egypt. Jurg recognises the need for quality trained diving professionals and therefore is committed to providing only the best to the Instructor Development and Leadership Programs. With Coral Bay Divers and its outstanding facilities as well as Jurg as your CD you can be assured of the most professional conduct in all Leadership & Career programs.

We hope the above information assists you in making the right decision as to why you should join us in becoming a PADI Instructor. Take the advantage of the head start you will gain to succeed in the exciting and adventurous world of scuba diving.

We will be happy to discuss any queries you may have personally. Please do not hesitate to contact our CD, Jurg  on +99089784 or send an email to
