Scuba Santas 2014 – Registration is now open

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014


Scuba Santa at the National Diving and Activity Centre Chepstow

Sunday 14th December 2014, at the
National Diving & Activity Centre (NDAC), Chepstow

Scuba Santas will be entering its 8th year in 2014 and continues going from strength to strength. Often quoted as the "best dive of the year", the event has raised thousands of pounds the RNLI and DDRC Healthcare whilst breaking its own world record several times over in the process.

Registration for the 2014 Scuba Santas event is now open >

Raising Money for the RNLI & DDRC HealthcareEach year, around Christmas time, we dress up in Santa costumes and go diving for fun and to raise money for charity. The money that we raise is shared between two great charities who provide a lot of support to divers – the RNLI and DDRC Healthcare (previously called the Diving Diseases Research Centre).

For the past few years the event has been held at the National Diving & Activity Centre (NDAC) near Chepstow, providing an easily accessible location for divers to get together for some festive diving fun!

'Scuba Santas' was founded by a group from Yorkshire Divers and was organised for many years by Lloyd Watkin. From 2013 DDRC Healthcare, the diver health charity which answers all calls to the National Diver Accident Helpline, came on board to support Lloyd as 'Scuba Santas Little Helpers!'.

JOIN US this year for the 8th Annual Scuba Santas event on SUNDAY 14th DECEMBER 2014 at the NDAC. Registration is now open for the 2014 event.

This year Scuba Santas are aiming to attract between 100 and 200 Scuba Santas, and to raise well over £2,000 for our two charities.

In 2009 we set the World Record for 'Most Scuba Diving Santas' with 158 fabulous Scuba Santas. Last year Vobster Santas had 175, so the gauntlet has been laid down… are you up for the challenge this year?

Over £20,000 raised for Charity so far…

In 2007 we raised a few hundred pounds for the RNLI with 8 participating Santas, a Viking, a snowman, and a fairy! By the 2012 event we passed the amazing milestone of £20,000 and we have motivated people to start similar events all over the world since.

Not only is this a great advert for British scuba diving, it provides much needed funds for two great charities, and despite the chilly temperatures helps to get some grumpy people smiling and feeling festive!

Scuba Santas have some fantastic sponsors every year who donate some amazing prizes for our prize draw, helping to raise more money for our chosen charities. We also raise money through sponsorship of the event and sponsorship for individual Scuba Santa participants. Please support us and give generously! 50% of money donated goes to the RNLI and 50% to DDRC Healthcare.

If you want to join this fantastic event, sponsor Scuba Santa, donate a prize or just wish the Scuba Santas well, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Scuba Santas or follow them on their various social media sites. HO HO HO!!!
