iDive Cayman Dive App Launches!

iDive Website and App Provide Access to a Scuba-centric Community and Deep Trip Planning Tools for the Cayman Island’s Seascape

 

Beginning 4 September 2012, iDive Global will be available on your preferred internet browser.

 

iDive is one of the few, very new applications that effectively networks Grand Cayman’s underwater entrepreneurs and professionals. The site catalogues HD video footage captured over the course of hundreds of unique dives. The videos feature commentary by dozens of local dive employees while also offering advertising space for established businesses to gain the opportunity to grow their brand.

 

This powerful trip planning tool is tailored specifically for easy use by both professionals as well as interested newcomers. Users can catalogue and plan their trip, share their experience on their social media accounts, and participate in interactive forums. The website, idiveglobal.com is currently available for use. Starting 4 October 2012, the application will be available on both iOS and Android platforms, providing the same experience as the web page on a mobile devic--for free.

 

Known for its amazing wall dives, beautiful coral reefs, and crystal clear visibility, the Cayman Islands offer some of the best scuba diving in the Caribbean. These vast seascapes attract advanced and novice divers all year round, creating an ideal launch location and target market for iDive’s services.

 

In 2011, a diverse group of entrepreneurs collaborated with a small team of experienced business investors whom represent more than 30 years of diverse entrepreneurial and business ventures. With their passion, knowledge and 21st century mind set, iDive Cayman is a well made, and well run system with the potential expansion opportunity to new locations in 2013.
