What do stakeholders think about the TIDE project? Are they benefiting from the cooperation process? This week, we virtually travel to Cadiz (Spain) to speak with Félix Rodríguez Moreno, Manager of the Sport and Professional Diving Centre and School, 3E FEDAS-CMAS Instructor and Professional Diving Instructor at Caetaria Underwater Activities Center.
Why did you agree to participate in TIDE and what aspects attracted you to the project?
There is a great heritage in our bay of Algeciras and its surroundings. We have been collaborating with the University of Cádiz for several years to bring this heritage to our divers. It allows us to develop sustainable and quality tourism.
Do you consider that the process of exchange of experiences, the good practices shared from other countries, are useful to improve your knowledge and your daily work?
The exchange of experiences is always positive, and making known the rich heritage of our waters is a plus.
What activities are you currently developing?
At the Caetaria center, we provide both sports and professional training. We also have a club from which we carry out regular outings in and around the Bay of Algeciras.
What benefits would you highlight from your participation in the TIDE project?
The quality information and training that working with the University of Cádiz generates for us.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Recreational diving must increasingly focus on quality, environmentally friendly, and sustainable diving.
