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.

Some good dives and skills today,
First well done to Claire for her diving and theory review in her scuba review, a few years out of the water, but you still have it and did very well, it’s was a pleasure to dive with you.

Second well done to Chris on his crossover from SAA to PADI, great skills.No issues with putting the crossover through.

Third and by no means least well done to Josh for your skills in the pool, mask removals and REG recovery no issue, no mask swims and cesa’s all mastered and well beyond what’s required, just go for it in the sea dive and repeat your success in the pool and I’ll be the first to welcome a new PADI open water diver to the fold.

Sorry everyone. Due to resourcing issues and clashes, we have had to cancel Sunday's club dive.
However, we will be scheduling an evening dive next week to make up for it, so please watch this space.

After the night snorkel with CWT and Your shore beach rangers, that went down well, everybody seemed to have a great time, who fancy another night snorkel.

We will be doing night diving soon for those interested too, why not do your PADI night diver spec so you can join the event.
