Phased Reopening Following Covid-19 Outbreak

There will be a phased reopening of the National Diving & Activity Centre from Saturday 31st October.

Initially we'll be open for Scuba Diving Only on Saturdays and Sundays. We will be carefully limiting the numbers on the site and only be allowing divers who have pre-booked their Scuba diving.

The View Cafe Bar, Gas Room and limited Wooden Wigwam accommodation will also be available for scuba diving visitors.

Other activities will remain closed at this stage. Sadly FearFest-Evil will not be held this year.

We thank you for all your support.
