Description for the dive shop Dive force marine centre-UK

In September 1982 Terry Wheal became a PADI Instructor after being enthusiastic about diving for many years. He felt he had a lot to offer other people, by teaching them to scuba dive and introducing them to the underwater world. He formed a school called North London Scuba which became very successful. Teaching many people from all walks of life some as famous as Tom Cruise and Rebecca De Mornay. In February 1987 after working at Dive Force part time and running the school independently he became a Director and Dive Force Marine was formed incorporating the school. Over the years Dive Force Marine has worked on many films and Television programmes. Also we have done recovery work in lakes, rivers and docks.
We have been arranging diving holidays for individuals and groups to many world-wide destinations over the last 20 years. The company earned the rating of a 5 Star IDC Centre in 1994, which means we are among the select few who have earned one of PADI’s highest level for excellence and quality service, and while we are proud of the fact our facility has been selected as one of this elite group, we are prouder still of the personal attention and professional service that we offer.
Terry is still a very keen diver, and is eager to share his knowledge with others. Whether it is about diving experiences, diving equipment or any other advice that people want. Terry Wheal was the founder of North London Scuba Club, which was formed in 1983. The club owns a X-RIB 115HP Mercury Optimax engine and trailer. Those members who have taken a recognised boat-handling course, on approval of the committee may skipper the boat. The boat is equipped with differential GPS which ensures prompt wreck finding, well equipped safety gear including Oxygen, EPRB’s per diving pair, VHF Radio, flares etc. The club goes on many trips through out the year and also holds social events as well.
