Event description

Description

An event for qualifed seasearch divers only

This is a full day of diving with two dives aboard the Rhib Stingray with Skipper Mark Milburn www.atlanticscuba.co.uk.

We will be exploring dive sites in Falmouth bay within the Fal and Helford Special area of Conservation and recording the recent surge in numbers of crawfish - Palinurus elephas, who are making a comeback following their dissapearence in the 1970's. Huge numbers of Crawfish were recorded on the Volnay wreck off Porthhallow in 2017 and this is one of the dive sites we hope to visit.

If weather conditions mean we are unable to get out into the bay we will have back up dives planned for biologically interesting sites within the shelter of the Fal estuary.

All divers participating must meet Cornwall Wildlife Trusts minimum requirements which are;

You must:

•Be aged 18 or over
•Be a trained diver qualified to the level of BSAC Sports diver, PADI Rescue diver or equivalent
•Have recent experience of cold water diving including a minimum of 20 logged dives, 10 of which should be in the UK and 2 of which should be within the last 6 months.
•Have your own dive gear or able to rent dive gear which must be serviceable and within test date
•Have a current diving medical or self-certification declaration
