Ray Woolley World Record Breaking Diver

Ray Woolley, pioneer diver & World War II veteran, has completed 39 dives in his 93rd year. ([email protected]). Now, officially, the oldest scuba diver in the world

This humble yet courageous man is now officially a World Record Breaking Diver and accepted into the Guinness Book of World Records. An incredible achievement aged a mere 93 years. Stoic, energetic and enthusiastic. It’s difficult to find enough adjectives to adequately describe this amazing man. Rays Woolley’s love of the warm and welcoming sea here in Cyprus means he will continue to dive for as long as he is happy to do so; which wouldn’t have been the case if he still lived in the Wirral for example.

“They told me not to climb ladders at my age. I feel like I can still do it, but I have to get other people in to do it now. But, saying that. I will go out on my next dive in a few days’ time.”

Scuba diving is perhaps the most addictive pastime ever…
