Scuba Diving

I sell property and casualty insurance in Florida. I also like to scuba dive. I would like your opinion on whether or not the following is deductible. I spent five hours with a prospect. First we went on a dive, then we spent two hours at dinner, where I asked the prospect to buy his car insurance and homeowners insurance from me. May I deduct the cost of the dive and the dinner?
