Dive Fest 2012Great news Dive Festers – Dive Fest will be back in Cornwall in 2012 for another weekend of diving, partying and entertainment. Dive Fest 2012 takes place over the May Bank holiday weekend, 4–7 May 2012.

Dive Fest is the UK’s biggest diving festival and takes place at Pentewan Sands Holiday Park near St Austell. With its private beach, new beach bar, state of the art Seahorse Centre with indoor pools and seaview restaurant, the park is the perfect place to hold the event. Onsite dive centre Sal Diving will be on hand to provide diving support and you can either bring your own RIB and dive from Pentewan, go hardboat diving from nearby Mevagissey or shore dive at some of the nearby sites. A large marquee is erected near the beach and there are bands and entertainment throughout the weekend, as well as photography competitions, treasure hunts and for non-divers the chance to go try-diving.

This year there will be a special Suunto Saturday with food, fancy dress, bonfire and bands. Oonasdivers will be providing the kids with the chance to enter a special competition and diving action man Andy Torbet returns with some new activities, more of which will be announced soon. Rebecca Coales of OMdiver joins us for the first time to offer festival-goers the chance to join a yoga session with a view to helping your breathing and buoyancy underwater.

A special early bookers’ discount is available only until the 31 December 2011, so don’t delay book your tickets now at
