Stingray Scheduled Boat Dives T&Cs


This page is the terms and conditions page for our Facebook group – Falmouth RHIB Diving on Stingray.

The only Rule of this group is: If you put your name down on a trip, you pay, unless YOU can find someone to take your place.

If you click going or ring us to say you are going, whatever the reason you have for not turning up, IT IS NOT UNDER OUR CONTROL. So the space you have reserved is still payable for. Just removing yourself from the event does not remove your liability, you must find a replacement or pay.

We keep our prices as reasonable as possible, if we get too many ‘no shows’, we shall have to increase our prices to cover them.

If you do not agree with these simple T&Cs, please remove yourself from the group. Repeat offenders will be removed, basically 3 strikes and you are out. You can still dive with us but payment will be required IN ADVANCE when you book your space, like nearly every dive boat in the U.K.

Stingray is a stable vessel and is useful as a base for film & media work. Although it may not have the space and comfort of Moonshadow, it does have speed and manoeuvrability, as well as accessibility to shallow sites in it’s favour.

It has been used in:

  • Two different Rosamunde Pilcher films made by FFP New Media for German TV
  • BBC Radio Cornwall live broadcast platform
  • BBC One Show for filming a Freediving feature with Ian Donald and Andy Torbet
  • BBC One Show as a featured boat, as well as for filming a piece with Miranda Krestovnikoff
  • Numerous features for Scubaverse.com as a base for some featured dives with Jeff Goodman
  • Jocks and Nerds magazine, Tudor watches freediving Photoshoot with Ian Donald

Moonray is a smaller filming platform than Moonshadow but, being fast, it means it can travel further afield. It also has a davit for towing the magnetometer or side scan sonar. It has been used in a few programs:

  • Rosamunde Pilcher film made by FFP New Media for German TV – Safety boat
  • Ross Kemp: Shipwreck Treasure Hunter – Sky History Channel – Filming Platform/dive boat
  • Digging for Treasure: Tonight (Ep 01 & Ep 03) – Channel 5 – Filming Platform/hero boat





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 →
