Here are some photos of some of the latest infrastructure works taking place on site for the benefit of our divers and water users.
This new area has recently been concreted over with 15 tonnes of ready mix concrete to create a new walkway and vehicle turning circle.
This is part of the ongoing infrastructure works throughout the site, that include a new Children’s Play Area and improvements to the Car Park surface. Other improvements throughout the site are on their way.
We have recently opened a new Children’s play area on the site.
Most activities on the site are aimed at over 12 year olds, so this new facility is for the younger children visiting the centre or staying in the Wigwam Village.
We hope you like the recent improvements to the car park at the National Diving & Activity Centre.
At the start of October we had 400 tonnes of road chippings delivered, laid and rolled onto the car park surface using heavy machinery.
You’ll be pleased to hear that this has filled most of the holes!
At the National Diving & Activity Centre Dive School we have a wide range of competitively priced courses suitable for all levels of diver, from complete beginners to the experienced.
All recreational and technical scuba training at the NDAC Dive School is provided by Cardiff Scuba. Cardiff Scuba is a well established dive school with an outstanding reputation for teaching Scuba Diving courses. Together we are South Wales’ largest provider of Scuba Training.
