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.

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.
