We trust you have had a nice winter/spring. It Bank Holiday weekend….The sun is finally shining, viz is about 10m and water temp is a little slow at heating up, but is now a toasty 12 degrees. So it’s time to dust off the dive gear and get back in the water! Most of us have been working hard over the winter, getting things ready for this season, although some lucky ones (Dave, Darren and Matt) have been able to escape to hotter climates over the winter. Everyone is back now though and we are all excited to see everyone again very soon!
All our new accommodation is now ready! Our log cabin is set back from the main house with sea views and an alpine feel! It’s lovely spacious accommodation that sleep s up to 8 people. There is an open plan sitting room, kitchen and dining room, equipped with all the essentials (cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave, TV, etc.) There is a bathroom with a toilet, sink and shower and also a separate room for coats and shoes etc. The log cabin has 3 bedrooms – 2 rooms have 2 single beds and 1 room has 2 single beds and an adult bunk.
There are also 4 apartments in the main house. All these apartments are self catering. 2 apartments sleep 2 people and 2 apartments sleep up to 4 people. The log cabin and all apartments all have outside seating areas, perfect for relaxing at the end of a busy days diving.

Shore diving is always available, night or day, as long as the wind is kind to us, and its just £5 for a day’s shore diving plus parking. We have an air filling station and kit hire on the beach.
Porthkerris is a 5 Star IDC Centre and we run all PADI courses from Discover Scuba Diving to Instructor. Last year we also became a BSAC Centre. We also have various courses arranged throughout the summer, so let us know if you would like to enhance your diving skills or want to introduce anyone to the wonders of diving. We can be pretty flexible, so give us a date and we will see what we can do….
