#Diving - As Limerick-raised entrepreneur Greg Wixted prepares to open the first of a new chain of diving resorts in Gran Canaria, he tells the Limerick Post that he hopes to someday bring the business to the Wild Atlantic Way.

“My vision would be to open one in Kilkee, where I spent my summers as a child and the diving off the west coast is some of the best in Europe,” says the co-proprietor of Blue Explorers, which will welcome its first guests for diving and adventure sport in May.

Ireland is a key market for his burgeoning dive business, says Wixted, who adds that 15% of bookings so far have come from Irish holidaymakers.
