For a few lucky divers there may also be the opportunity to take the new Argonaut drysuit for a spin!
Free Air Fill
As part of our Demonstration Weekend, Fourth Element will be giving every person that tries a piece of Fourth Element gear a free air fill
We will also have a mini pop up shop with full range of undersuits and some lifestyle gear, as well as the new Argonaut Drysuit, which we are pleased to announce that we are now a dealer for.
Staff from Fourth Element will be available over the demonstration weekend to answer all your questions and size you up – so why not pop in and try one on for size and get yourself a free air fill!
We look forward to seeing you.
We have been really pleased with the increased number of visitors to the National Diving & Activity Centre this year. We think this is due to the continuing investments we make to improve the site whilst still being one of the most cost effective dive sites anywhere in the UK.
And were getting bigger thanks to your help!
We have been listening to your comments about the National Diving & Activity Centre and have decided to improve things further with a new and updated EPOS (Electronic Point of Sale) Cashless Swipe System.
We are launching a new Cashless Swipe Membership Card system for all our in-date NDAC Members at the start of August this year. This will mean that NDAC Members can pay for their entry, air fills, mixed gases, and food & drink from the View Cafe Bar, all with the swipe of a new NDAC Membership Card. You can even buy those little extra goodies from our dive shop with an ever-increasing range now being stocked.
So there’ll be no more having to carry your wallet or purse with you, instead just charge your card and pay at the end of the day. You can even dive with your card!
This system is not just for the divers though, visitors staying in our Wooden Wigwam Village will also be able to have a swipe card for the duration of their stay.
The Swipe Cards are just one of the many benefits our members enjoy – so why not take this opportunity now to go cashless at the National Diving & Activity Centre and become an NDAC Member today.

What is the biggest thing that puts you off diving and water sports in the UK?
The cold, we thought so…well the answer is here with a brand new design of heated under suits that really do keep you warm no matter what the weather or water temperature!
This product is new to the UK diving and watersports market and the NDAC is pleased to announce that we have some Thermalution heated undersuits for you to try.
We have a small and a large undersuit available, and with the recent cold snap we’re expecting this product to be very popular.
Why Choose Thermalution?
• It’s slim, durable and weighs a mere 700g allowing you to have maximum flexibility and agility underwater whilst being lightweight at the same time.
• Three temperature settings, you can adjust the temperature of the thermal layer within your wetsuit, even underwater!
• This innovative product, which can go as deep as 100 meters, will spare you from cold dives, is super comfortable and stylish.
• Powered by two Lithium Polymer 7.4V batteries. These are the same type of batteries found in your mobile phone or mp3 player: no danger of radiation, electric shock or explosion
• They are compact and lightweight; a set consists of two 130g batteries.
• Battery pockets are positioned outside of the under-suit at the sides of the chest, under the arms offering maximum freedom of movement.
The National Diving & Activity Centre has recently been listed as a Fourth Element Test Centre.
Want to test dive products before you buy?
Because diving and the dive shop are more accessible at the NDAC, Fourth Element are working with us to enable you to try their products in the water before purchasing them.
The NDAC Shop Staff are familiar with the range of fourth element products and can give you expert advice on which of their lines to choose and try for yourself.
At the National Diving & Activity Centre we have the Arctic undersuit available to test.
These will be issued with all Drysuit rentals, and to students on courses where school drysuits are being used, such as the PADI Dry Suit Diver Speciality Course. Additionally, the sets will be used on a try before you buy basis. Rent a complete Arctic set for £10. This will be deducted from the subsequent purchase of a new Arctic thermal 3-piece set on production of the receipt.
The Arctic’s two layers of high insulation, low bulk fabric, ensure exceptional levels of thermal protection. Constructed with comfort and utility in mind, the minimalist design provides outstanding performance under closer fitting neoprene drysuits.
