As you all know, we are taking our first steps back towards normality by reopening the shop on Tuesday 16th June. We are looking forward to seeing you all but are taking the safety of our customers and staff very seriously.
We are super excited to be finally re opening for all equipment sales, cylinder and regulator servicing, kit hire, battery changes, trip bookings and drysuit repairs.
Here are some of the things we have implemented in line with the Government’s guidelines to keep us and all of our customers safe:
🐠 Only 2 people will be allowed in the shop at any one time. Please wait outside or in your car if there is already 2 people in the shop.
🐠 Please limit those that visit the shop to only those who actually need to come in.
🐠As per government advice, please wear a face mask in our small shop. If you do not have a mask you will be requested to remain outside.
🐠 We have put 2 metre distancing measures in place around the shop and at the desk. Please be ‘distance aware’.
🐠Hand sanitiser is available for your convenience. Please sanitise your hands on arrival.
🐠Signage in and around the shop to remind you of the social distance recommendations.
🐠 We would prefer contactless card payments where possible.
🐠 When we are filling cylinders we will be wearing latex gloves.
🐠 If you’re waiting for air fills you will be asked to wait outside or in your car until your cylinders are ready for you.
🐠 We will ensure all surfaces are cleaned, disinfected, and washed down as required.
🐠 A mask sanitising station is provided for mask try- on.
🐠 Latex gloves will be provided for trying on any dive gloves.
🐠 Our toilet and kitchen area is now for staff use ONLY!
As much as we love seeing you all, following the Government advice we are sadly not able to offer our usual refreshments and much loved chats at the moment. 😔 Please don’t think we are being funny, we are just trying to keep everyone as safe as possible.
Pool and Open Water training- We have not yet heard anything from the Leisure Centre about a return date as of yet.
There has been various talks about open water quarries reopening. We will get a plan of action together as regards to training as and when we feel it is safe to do so. Those that had got courses booked before lockdown will be contacted first. So please bare with us our hands are tied from all angles at the moment.
Don’t forget though!!! You can continue your scuba diving adventure though the online PADI training system! Give us a call for more information and advice of what’s on offer.
For any enquiries please feel free to give us a call on 01952 257590 Or email us at email@example.com

Stoney Cove has confirmed they are re-opening for diving from Wednesday 17th June, but with limited numbers of divers per day and limited to ‘Diverlog’ registered divers on a pre-booked basis only. They have also got other restrictions in place:
The toilets will be open, but the changing rooms are closed
Air station will be open
No hire equipment
No training at this time
Food hatch will be open, but bar and restaurant will remain closed.
So it is good news they are re-opening but you will need to plan ahead and turn up ready to dive. No word yet on when we can re-start teaching up there but hopefully not too long to wait….If you are not a Diverlog member you can sign up via their website and you will be able to book a place via their website from next week

Capernwray Opening Update
Based on Government and British Diving Safety Group announcements we are hoping to reopen Capernwray for diving and swimming toward the end of June; we are preparing the Centre for operations with safe social distancing and protection for staff and customers. We are following the latest news and announcements very closely and will be doing our best to comply with the requirements in our new world. It may be that guidance changes and we have to wait a bit longer which is why we cannot yet give an accurate date.
National Diving & Activity Centre NDAC
Last updated 26th March 2020
Owing to the global coronavirus pandemic and based on the information available to us from the UK Government we believe that the significant risk that is posed to our staff, customers and the local community to which we serve requires us to take decisive action now.
We are a local business that operates predominately outdoors, which by nature is less risk than any other indoor facility.
However, we are mindful, that continuing to operate during this global crisis is not in the best interests of our customers and team at NDAC or to members of the public. It is therefore with a heavy heart we have decided to fully close operations to the public from 22nd March 2020 until further notice.
We would like to thank all our customers for supporting us over the years and we look forward to serving you again. We would also like to thank all our staff and dedicated work force for their commitment and understanding during these really difficult times, and would like to thank all the UK Government services for everything they are doing for our country.
As a valued member of the dive community and someone that supports us in our quest to promote all things diving, we welcome you to our ScubaTeks BLOG pages.
