Scuba St. Lucia receives PADI loyalty award
Scuba St. Lucia, the PADi 5 Star dive operation at the Anse Chastanet Resort in Soufriere, was presented a loyalty award by PADI, the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, marking its 30th anniversary of the dive centre's affiliation with PADI. The award was presented on Tuesday, April 10, by PADI's Regional Manager, Mike Hill, in a brief ceremony held at Sandals Regency in conjunction with a PADI Forum being conducted for all of St. Lucia's affiliated scuba diving operations.

Receiving the award for Scuba St. Lucia were manager, Bernd Rac, and assistant manager, Callistus Jackson. The award cites "For 30 Years of Outstanding Service Member Since 1982".

PADI is the world's largest scuba diving training organization which is affiliated with over 6,000 dive shops and resorts around the globe. Founded in 1966, PADI is recognized for setting industry standards for dive training for its modularized approached to teaching which combines theory with practical application.

Anse Chastanet owner Nick Troubetzkoy founded Scuba St. Lucia in 1981, recognizing the great potential of the diving tourism market for Saint Lucia and taking advantage of Anse Chastanet's location in the midst of numerous coral reefs which soon became recognized as offering some of the best diving and snorkeling in the region. The resort's initiatives since the early 80's to attend international dive shows and advertise in scuba diving magazines abroad soon put Saint Lucia on the top as a must see destination for scuba divers. Also, these early marketing activities undertaken by Anse Chastanet and Scuba St.Lucia created the foundation for other dive operations to eventually emerge on island, making scuba diving a viable segment of Saint Lucia's tourism product.

Scuba St. Lucia, for many years, was the principle operation to provide training and professional certification to Saint Lucian nationals to become dive instructors and dive masters. Also, Scuba St. Lucia played a key role in the development of the Soufriere Marine Management Association (SMMA) which oversees the sustainable management of Saint Lucia's important marine resources along the island's southwest coast
