VPDC Dry Suit Course

Description

The waters around Cornwall never get that cold but in the winter the temperature can fall to within the range when drysuits are often worn. Drysuits work a bit differently to wetsuits as they are full of air, which unlike water, can be compressed and can move around within the suit. This can lead to buoyancy issues which in turn can cause safety problems.

For those who want to dive in dry suits without needing a full PADI speciality accreditation, we offer a course consisting of a pool and a sea dive that provides the instruction needed to dive safely in a dry suit in UK waters. The pool session allows the diver to gain an appreciation of the weight required to wear a dry suit to allow sufficient air to be introduced to maintain warmth and the way in which buoyancy is controlled. The sea session allows this learning to be practically applied and to make sure that the diver can stay warm and safe while dry suit diving.

Been a busy few days at Viewpoint, with dive against debris dives, project aware course, and a digital photograph level 1 to 2 upgrade course, well done to Blaise for doing them all, keep collecting the rubbish from the sea.
At viewpoint diving we are a 100% project aware centre and have adopted Portmellon as our dive against debris main site, so are always collecting the odd bit of rubbish on every dive, and donate £10 to project aware for every certification we put through to Padi.
We have noticed due to divers collecting the rubbish from the sea and 3 bays and Sas beach cleans along with more people recycling and using the rubbish bins, Portmellon is a lot cleaner than it was under the water keep up all the good work everybody.

Another great club dive today with 12 divers in the water, one team off to the left the Panda group (club members will understand) and one to the right, visibility still low between 2-4 meters but water nice and warm.
See you all next week.

Open water course running Tuesday to Friday inclusive, still some spaces available, and spaces on the following weeks open water course too.

If you want a DSD (Discover Scuba Diving day ) pool and sea these are on Mondays throughout August.

Nice little 54 min dive on southern reef at Portmellon, visibility well down due to SE winds and bit choppy getting in, but all in all a great dive.
Club dive tomorrow visibility should be better and sea flatter due to wind changing to Sw. See you all tomorrow.
