Event description
Join Seasearch Cornwall for two days of diving to explore seagrass beds and highlights of the Plymouth Sound Special Area of Conservation.

About this event

This is a two day diving expedition, for qualified Seasearch divers. The diving is subsidised by 50% by the EU Life funded ReMEDIES project and in return you will be expected to provide a Seasearch form from each dive, (one form per buddy pair).

Each day we will do two dives from the large Rib Eclipse (setting of from Mount batten watersports centre) the first dive will be a deeper dive (max 25m) (plan yet to be decided) and the second dive each day will be exploring an area of seagrass within Plymouth Sound SAC (half of which is Cornwall btw!!). We will be looking at areas where seagrass may be found to see if it is present or absent, and also t assessing the health of seagrass and looking for evidence of human impacts. The seagrass dives may well be shallow (so please make sure you have sufficient weight). The Rib is equipped with a spine ladder to help you get out of the water.

The boat usually takes 10 divers but due to covid restrictions and to allow a little more space between divers on the boat we will only be taking a total of 8 divers on the day.

You will need to bring all your own equipment, provide evidence of valid insurance, qualifications and recent dive experience and to either provide a medical certificate or fill in a self certification certificate.
