Basking Shark & Wildlife Watching


Our charter RHIB ‘Stingray’ is legally coded to take 11 people out for viewing wildlife as well as taking scuba divers. The waters around Cornwall have a rich wildlife heritage including Basking Sharks to Atlantic Grey Seals. As a WiSe (Wildlife Safe) Master accredited operator we have received instruction in species identification, life history and behaviour of a range of species that we might encounter, and will record our sightings for use in basic scientific research. read more →

Magnetometer & Side Scan Surveys


Atlantic Scuba owns two proton precession Magnetometers for detecting ferrous objects underwater. Our Planet Electronics MX500 Proton Magnetometer is a high quality Nuclear Magnetic Resonance scanner.  When towed behind our rhibs it can be used to find wrecks/wreckage or even cannons at various depths depending on the size and shape of the object. Our Aquascan AX100 is a more compact unit with similar capabilities to the MX500. By simultaneously using both our boats with both magnetometers, we can cover large areas very quickly. read more →
