Q. What happens if the weather is not suitable for diving?

A. The weather can affect divers in different ways. Rain can help flatten and waves on the sea but it also brings silt down the rivers, which can then affect visibility. Wind will affect the surface conditions which can churn up shallow waters or make the access to and from a boat too dangerous. To help with this we have access to an indoor heated swimming pool, for all confined water training. For Open Water training, luckily we have 2 coastlines in Cornwall facing opposite ways, so there is usually somewhere not too affected by the wind to dive. read more →
