PADI Divers against Debris

As a PADI Project AWARE Centre, Viewpoint Diving takes marine conservation very seriously.

We can start to make an impact on our coastal waters immediately. As divers we can go to places that most people can never see, we can see the effects of polution first hand.

We are lucky in Cornwall, we have clear and largely unpolluted waters, but even here rubbish accumulates, whether it has been blown into the sea from the shore or come from the many boats that traverse local coastal waters.

This rubbish can be swallowed by fish and marine mammals, resulting in imjury and death, it can cause entanglement and it doesn’t look nice for those who want to visit our underwater world.

We therefore undertake PADI Divers Against Debris Dives at our local dive sites: organised events specifically to clear some of the rubbish from our bays. We run these throughout the winter season, visit our Facebook page for dates and details.

If you want to earn the PADI Distinctive Speciality Divers Against Debris, then we offer this at our cost price of £50.00 – to demonstrate our commitment to the seas around Cornwall.

From Monday (18 January) there are some changes for the foreseeable future to the way the BBC will broadcast the UK Marine Weather Service – including the Shipping Forecast – owing to the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19).
On weekdays, there will be three broadcasts on LW and FM, 0048, 0520 and 1203, with one further broadcast on LW only at 1754.
At the weekends, there will be three broadcasts, all on LW and FM at 0048, 0520 and 1754.
Her Majesty’s Coastguard will be broadcasting as normal via NAVTEX and MF/VHF marine radio.
Strong wind and gale warnings will still be available as and when needed.
Andrew Colenutt, Head of Hydrography and Meteorology at the Maritime and Coastguard Agency said: ‘We completely understand and support the decision of the BBC which faces its own challenges. They are a key partner in bringing this vital information to mariners and are doing all they can to make sure the service continues.
‘We continue to support the maritime industry at this difficult time and have taken all the measures we can to protect crew and the lifelines they are providing to the UK. Mariners should be assured that Maritime Safety Information will continue to be broadcast, still meeting the requirements of the international standard known as SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea).’

A few of us dive with these and they are greatTitanium is the answer to many of diving's toughest problems.

During our design evolution, we needed to find a material that was incredibly tough: tough enough for years of abuse, yet light enough to easily accompany you on every holiday.

The answer was Titanium.
