Diving Clubs

Date Posted: 12 Jan 2021

If diving is your bag, there are many clubs right here in Cornwall.

The Kernow Federation list is a good starting point to find the one for you, which you can find here. With Cornwall’s amazing coastline, in sea warmed by the Gulf Stream, diving is a fabulous option, both for the experienced and the novice.

There are plenty of dive sites on the peninsula, and lots of opportunities to discover Cornish diving. Try the Cornish Diving Centre in fabulous Falmouth, where qualified divers can go out with a divemaster to uncover the beauty of Cornish waters; or those new to diving can attend a ‘Discover Local Diving’ session with a fully qualified instructor.

On the north coast, Dive Newquay offers beginners, intermediate and experienced diving courses, with dedicated dive professionals. This blog post tells you more about Cornish sea diving, discussing issues like visibility, types of dive, depth range and water temperature.

It rightly reckons that Cornwall is the place that really has it all for diving. You will see an array of abundant natural sea life, or check out reefs and shipwrecks depending on your location.

Frequently dived areas are Falmouth Bay and the Lizard, sitting either side of the spectacular granite Manacles Reef. St Ives Bay offers wreck sites, as does Newquay area. On the south coast, Lamorna Cove, near Newlyn/Penzance is challenging, and further west is the Runnel Stone, a rock pinnacle off Gwennap Head.

Wherever you are staying, there will be a dive club/site not too far away.
