Ryan Roth "The Faking Dead"

This is not really diving related but does involve a little diving. For the past 13 yrs in my spare time, I've been tracking a serial scammer across the globe. I've uncovered scams involving millions of pounds. A documentary that I was heavily involved with is due to be shown on Discover plus in the UK soon. Called "The Faking Dead" it tells the story of the life of Ryan Roth A.K.A Ryan Flynn amongst other aliases. I was fortunate to be flown to London for filming and then onto Bali where I was filmed doing an underwater search for his body as he'd left a suicide note at the top of a cliff in Bali. It was his second fake suicide and he also had a flight booked out of Bali on the day his things were discovered. He has at least 4 passports.

Here's a link to the press release for the documentary:

Padi Women's day 16th July 2022

Celebrating Padi women's day on the 16th July and to encourage more women to think about becoming scuba divers.

We have an amazing unbeatable offer for you.

For the first 20 women to register their interest with us who have never tried scuba diving but always wanted to, we are offering a DSD (discover scuba diving) session for FREE instead of the usual €90, an amazing offer for one day only. Minimum age is 10 yrs old to take part in this. There is no maximum age limit.

You'll have full scuba equipment with air tank provided by us, you will enjoy some safety training in our pool first and then you'll be taken to a local dive site to be guided around underwater to a maximum depth of 6mtr.

To take part in the discover scuba diving session which usually take around 3 hrs, all you have to do is scan the QR code below, 

create an account to register your details with Padi and read the discover scuba diving booklet on your phone etc, you'll watch some great videos about scuba diving, a couple of fun quizzes, complete the standard diving paperwork and medical form. This takes around 30 minutes and must be completed prior to your discover scuba diving session.

There is no obligation to continue with any diving courses afterwards, but if you did decide to become a Padi open water diver which takes 3 - 4 days, where you can dive to 18mtr anywhere in the world with another certified diver, then we will discount the usual price of €490 to only €450 if booked on the day.

Places are limited so please book early. There will be various time slots available on a first come first served basis. All you have to do on the day is arrive at our place in Anarita, Paphos at the given time.

We cannot take disabled people diving on this day due to time & logistical restraints, but if anyone disabled is interested in this offer then we will honor it and make special arrangements to take you diving on another suitable day.

Local press story on our beach clean-up

21st September 2021

Follow the link to read about our Padi Aware week beach clean up in our local press. https://cyprus-mail.com/2021/09/21/beach-clean-up-in-paphos/

 

 

Padi Aware week event 19th Septemebr 2021

I desperately need volunteers to help with a beach clean up on Sunday 19th September 2012 at the lovely Timi Beach.

Only a 10 minute walk from one end to the other revealed so much plastic and rubbish that needs collecting before it ends up in the ocean. Start time is 10am and should take 2 hrs but with enough helpers only 1 hour, it'll keep the ocean a bit cleaner and make Cyprus a little cleaner as well

I'll provide collection bags and some home cooked snacks and soft drinks at the end, all you need is some strong gloves and giving up some of your time. PLEASE HELP

We're meeting in the rear car park between the Bonamare beach bar cafe and the other beach bar. Look out for the PADI flags. Contact me for full directions if you can help us.
