SCUBA diving beginner 'try dives'

Cornwall is rightly famous for a coastline littered with shipwrecks and home to a huge number of marine species.

Many 'bubble blowers' consider Cornwall the best place in mainland Britain to go SCUBA diving.

Don’t just take their word for it, though, do a ‘Try Dive’ at this year’s SWOF with the experts at Porthkerris Divers, and begin your own journey into the wonders of the underwater world.

Seawater is at its warmest in early autumn - it’s the perfect time to take the plunge. As a festival special, try dives will be offered for £65pp, and everyone who participates will get a free Porthkerris Divers t-shirt (worth £15).

Contact Porthkerris Divers direct to book (call 01326 280620 or visit their website here) and mention SWOF. If you need convincing about descending into the deep, come along to the talk Porthkerris Divers will be giving about all the sensational diving that can be done off the Cornwall coast on the Saturday morning at 10.15am, in the National Trust Adventure Tipi.
