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.

A great club dive for the few that turned up, flat seas and visibility the best it’s been for a long time 4-5m, loads of life from crabs of all types, starfish, wrasse, and even a scorpion fish. Sea temperature is up to 10 degrees so semi dry suit conditions have returned.
Hope see more of you next weekend now it’s warming up.

This weather is not good at present so quiet club dive today, suppose to be better next week, let’s hope so or we will all need refreshers.
Anybody up for dry courses like
Nitrox
Equipment spec
Any of the many EFR first aid courses we run from primary and secondary care to wilderness outdoors or maybe instructor courses.
O2 administration
Or even a play session at pool on full face masks with COMMS, or old and new twin hose solutions or even semi closed rebreathers, or you may just want refresh your skills and practice rescue drills.

Remember we are also a DDI centre so offer surface assistance or verified assistant.

Hope to see you all soon.
