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.

All divers enjoyed their night dive tonight, visibility and conditions were good and the sea wildlife was out in plenty for them.

Guess we had better schedule another one if enough interest. Just let us know.

It’s getting closer to that time of year where the weather will change and it will get colder, so which speciality would you like us to schedule in.

Stay warm in the sea with the drysuit spec free if you purchase a new drysuit from us.

RNLI sea survivor been seen and safe if separated from you group and how to stay warm

Night diver, spend more time diving as daylight diving has a shorter window, see new thing as lots of animals only come out of hiding at night.

EFRI primary and secondary, learn cpr and AED along with first aid, great classroom course, no need to worry about the weather.

Enriched air, dive longer between 15 and 30 meters or have a shorter surface interval, more time diving. Again nice warm classroom with optional dive.

We offer a lot more PADI speciality course but just a few to think about.
