Kit List

Porthkerris Divers

There can be many seasons in a day in Cornwall, so please be prepared for all weather.

Please pack waterproofs, warm clothes and extra clothes for other activity times outside of diving when the students may get wet.

We will have a drying area for the students to hang any wet dive kit. But please bear in mind if it is a particularly wet week, clothes will not dry properly so having spare clothes is essential.

In the evening we will sit around tables at basecamp under a cover, and also around the fire pit, so we will have shelter, but remember we are still on the coast and open to the elements so come prepared for camping.

If you have poor eyesight

Last timea couple of divers discussed their poor eyesight with the Dive Cleeve team well before departure. Wearing contact lenses in the water is highly discouraged, as microorganisms can get between the lens and the eye, causing an end to diving as well as a trip to hospital and weeks of eye drops. Most young people do not need any vision correction underwater, but we are happy to discuss corrective masks with families who think they may be necessary. Just Contact Us to discuss.
