In the last few weeks we have taken delivery at the National Diving & Activity Centre of some new pontoon sections from Southampton.
We have been carrying out some infrastructure works at the National Diving & Activity Centre.
Twenty tonnes of concrete has been laid to extend the lake’s slipway and improve access to and from the water.
We request that visitors keep out of the coned areas until the concrete has dried fully.
We hope this improvement will help our divers access and egress the water a little more easily. Watch this space for further improvements.
This week we have been lowering our new scuba diving attraction into place at the National Diving & Activity Centre.
The Hyperbaric Chamber was lowered using a 5 tonne lift bag and a lot of assistance.
The Hyperbaric Chamber has retired from its previous life at DDRC Healthcare and will be placed at 20-30m as an underwater diving attraction.
Over 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.
