The forgotten recreational diving system
Most people think that Surface-supply diving or hookah diving is a new invention, but in fact hookah diving started centuries ago.
The first documented diving dress was developed in Spain in 1602 by military engineer Jerónimo de Ayanz y Beaumont, in the same country as PETER Diving System was born.
Nowadays, the primary use of Surface-supply diving is for commercial divers to undertake heavy operations like moulding and other underwater construction works. However, until recently Surface-supply diving has not gained much popularity for recreational use.
Today there is less than 5 system manufacturers for recreational use in the international markets. All of these work with compressor sets on inflatable floats and all work out of the frame work set by the World SCUBA Recreational Training Council (WRSTC), to ensure the minimum safety standards are met.
PETER Diving System fulfils the requirements to provide optimum reliability and ease to those persons or companies diving with it. Here is a list of the main advantages:
- Ultra-light, only 15 Kg for a set for 3 divers in total
- Solid, unsinkable float designed by naval architects
- Universal & modular, allowing a quick reconfiguration of max. depth and no. of divers
- Availability of a specialty course for recreational divers and professionals
- No compressor, any type of air cylinder can be utilised
- Little maintenance required
- Insurance coverage guaranteed
Value for diving operators
The DEMA Dive Facts report from 2013 states that there were 6 million SCUBA divers and 11 million snorkelers in USA. As the middle market, hookah diving is estimated to be over 30% of the total diving and snorkelling market. Most dive centers are not exploiting this niche yet.
PETER Diving is not a substitute of snorkelling or SCUBA but a new revenue stream coming from a different target group. It stimulates internal sales, becoming a great upsell activity for customers to go from snorkelling to Try PETER Diving and for customers starting with PETER Diving to Try SCUBA Diving, or Open Water Diving.
PETER Diving does best in diving centers and resorts, eco-parks, entertainment complexes and water park attractions where the infrastructure is already set. However, it can also be run as a standalone operation. The versatile PETER Diving System can adapt to nearly any operating environment within these markets; from open ocean to yacht charters and more.
The combination of a certification for the technology with the specialty course outline available at international training agencies make the insurance companies cover all liabilities derived from its operations, including those from yacht charter guests.
