We're providing a life-changing opportunity to support the

mental health and wellbeing of young people throughout the UK

Watch our new video to discover how DIVE PROJECT CORNWALL is making a positive impact with young people across the UK.


Our expert team of dive instructors teach more than diving - we help young people discover themselves.


Supported by the Marine Conservation Society, students learn the importance of our oceans and how to better protect them.


Students will benefit from the professional dive training given by our team PADI dive experts, working towards achieving their Scuba Diver Certification.

Sir James Smith's School

Ed McGuffie, Deputy Head

"Since returning from Porthkerris, many of our students have since signed up to complete the Duke of Edinburgh's award. These are pupils that would never have considered completing such a challenge. The experience of Dive Project Cornwall has given these pupils the confidence to go on and achieve things that would previously have been unimaginable. Thank you DPC for opening the door for these individuals."

Ark St. Albans School

Tim Thompson, Deputy Head

"Having spent 30 years in and around Outdoor Education, working in a range of settings with probably most demographics, and seeing loads of projects in the process. I honestly can say that the week and experience we were able to give the students had the ability to influence lives and open eye's, even if in a small but important way."

Hitchin Girls School

Lucy, Student

"My favourite part of the trip was when all of the e-learning and skill practice came together in our ocean dives. It was an incredible experience and I definitely didn’t want to come home! Everyone was so nice and we all had an amazing week."

Parent Testimonial

"It was heartening to see my son, who is extremely introverted, socialise with the other children, and to see him push his boundaries in the water.


It's not just about diving, but about socialising, pushing boundaries, learning new skills, acting responsibly, and growing into a environmentally aware adult, something all teenagers need at this time in history more than ever."
