Scuba Diving around & under the Saltfree Pontoon

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

Saltfree Pontoon

As a reminder for scuba divers – please could you avoid the area around & underneath the Saltfree Divers pontoon when their A flag is flying and they are freediving.

In particular we also request that divers do not use the freedive mooring lines for decompression stops.

If the freedivers had to release their counterweight system in an emergency, there is the risk of being caught by a 60kg weight.

The upcoming freedive meets are as follows:

• 30 April
• 1 May
• 21/22 May
• 11/12 June
• 9/10 July
• 30/31 July
• 6/7 August
• 27/28 August
• 10/11 September
• 24/25 September
• 8/9 October

We’d also like to remind any divers using re-breathers that you must also use a Surface Marker Buoy (SMB) throughout your dive. (However please note that yellows SMBs should only be used in emergencies.)

Thanks for your understanding.

Caroline – New Diving Attraction at the NDAC Chepstow

Caroline - New Diving Attraction at the NDAC Chepstow

Preparing the new underwater diving attractionOver 20,000 people saw our AprilFools post last week, but we’ve got some very exciting real news today for divers!

Later today we will be installing our latest underwater attraction, ‘Caroline’.

This 35 Tonne steel trawler traveled over 500 miles from Aberdeen in 2013 to its final home as an underwater diving attraction at the National Diving & Activity Centre.

We have recently been completing the final works to our latest underwater attraction, and this weekend the original prop was welded into place.

The new boat, named ‘Caroline’ is 11.33 metres long and the plan is to place her in the water at around 25m, providing a fantastic wreck diving experience.
