Atlantis, The Palm: Special Diving Training

As part of its efforts to support social inclusion and the empowerment of people with disabilities, Dive Atlantis, the newest addition to Atlantis, The Palm resort attractions, hosted a twoday diving training programme for people with special needs.

Organised in collaboration with Disabled Divers International, the initiative was aimed at promoting, developing and conducting scuba diving training sessions in professional and non-professional categories.

"Diving can be an enriching experience, potentially helping to improve quality of life," commented Mike Ceci, manager, Dive Atlantis.

He added that it is a sport where participants experience the feeling of absolute weightlessness, thus it is usually comfortable for those with challenges in regards to movement
