VDI unveils a dive simulator app

According to VDI "this app is as close to diving as you can get on your mobile device while playing a game at the same time. More than a game, this simulator puts you in the diver's seat!"

Target market

The platform allows divers to enjoy their sport, with the simulator integrating the most used items in diving: mobile devices, training, and a connection to others with the same lifestyle.

In spring 2014, Holliday, along with Paul Toomer, bought shares in the dive training agency RAID in order to take it to the next level. In August 2014, he was appointed the new CEO of RAID International, a post he held until approximately two years ago. 

Now, Holliday, VDI's operations officer, has confirmed that the first dive training agency to get involved with his latest project is Scuba Schools International. 

VDI is honoured to host 3000+ SSI Dive Centers across the world, on our locator platform.


During the virtual dive, users will be able to discover marine life, explore underwater scenery or find gold coins. The team behind the VDI dive simulator think that this will help users to learn more about scuba diving and try virtual skills before taking a real scuba diving course.
