The End of A Scuba Diving Era
September 30, 2020 (yesterday) saw the closing of Allan Power Dive Tours after almost 40 years of world class diving on Santo, Vanuatu.
The vision and enthusiasm of Allan Power carried the business forward, through to his passing 21 months ago. His underwater achievements, publishing and photography milestones and virtual encyclopedic knowledge of marine life will be remembered by most who met Allan and many divers must have received inspiration to better their skills and knowledge in the sport of scuba diving.
The family is sad to see the business close under the cloud of COVID-19, uncertain flights and the chaos caused by cyclone Harold earlier this year and to everyone who knew Allan they send heartfelt thanks and best wishes for the future.
It is sincerely hoped that diving on Santo will continue in fine form and the high standards in scuba diving demanded by Allan will be met. The business community of Santo deserve continuing support from the amazingly widespread number of visitors that come to Santo and hopefully Santo will flourish again.
Tony Lewis, the manager and staff thank all who have sent kind messages.
