Site Rules

The following rules are mandated by Dive Project Cornwall.

CAMP SITE RULES at Dive Project Cornwall

Please be aware that although Dive Project Cornwall have their own campsite-field on Porthkerris property, nearby fields are being used by other customers so we have to be mindful of the noise after 9pm. After a busy day diving the students will be tired, so whilst there will be some activity in the evening this will not run late into the night.

Mobile phones can be charged subject to availability in the Dive Project Cornwall kitchen, which can be locked. All student phones will be locked in the kitchen at 1930 to allow some offline social time.

Students and teachers charge their electronic devices at their own risk. Dive Project Cornwall take no responsibility if items are lost or stolen. 

Disciplinary Procedure

First Warning – informal one to one conversation with one of the teaching staff present

Second Warning – formal one to one conversation with one of the teaching staff present

Caution – sit down and make an agreement plan with one of the teaching staff present 

Final Discipline – removed from the course and be supervised by the teaching staff

Please note the Dive Team will follow PADI standards during all Dive Activities + the above procedure will apply.

Porthkerris Site – Where is accessible and out of bounds

Porthkerris Dive Centre also have their own café by the beach where students will be allowed to buy snacks, chocolate, etc. Students are allowed to buy snacks at the café and only customers of the café are allowed to sit at the café tables.
