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.

Lots of sea life including wrasse and spyder crabs,

It’s that time of the year where some of you are not diving due to the cold and conditions - though the hardy few are continuing!
Either way, now is the time to get your kit checked and serviced, either because your not diving at present or because the water is colder and you are putting more strain on your kit.
We can inspect and service most manufacturers equipment - just let us know what you need done and we can give you an idea of cost.
Remember you would not drive your car if not MOTed or faulty so why dive without serviced or checked kit? Your life depends on it.
