Harry Thornton became a PADI Scuba Diver

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

This story is so amazing that I had to write about it. On the 5th of August 2015 something really special happened in Larnaca, Cyprus.

Harry Thornton and Marco CuciniHarry Thornton became a PADI Scuba Diver. Well – this event is nothing out of the ordinary, what is in fact extraordinary, he is born in 1931 and received his Scuba Diver Certification with the age of 83!

Marco Cucini, the PADI Instructor from Viking Divers in Larnaca, Cyprus, had the honour to teach Harry and to show him the beauty of diving.

How often do you hear, when you try to sell Scuba Diving around a pool area “Ooh – Scuba Diving? No thank you, I´m too old for this”. Harry Thornton is proofing the opposite. You are never too old to discover the beauty of the underwater world.

Now, Harry Thornton is able to dive together with his son Steve and Grandson Joe who are diving with Viking Divers in Cyprus for many years. On the 19th of October 2015 – Harry will turn 84 years old!

I´m truly inspired by Harry and I wish him all the best, good health and many years of diving!
