Bursting the outdated bubble that is the UK diving scene, The Fifth Point is a dive centre with a difference.
Promoting modern diving and environmental protection in all of our endeavours, as soon as you walk in our dive centre you’ll notice it’s not normal. Our building is constructed from as much reclaimed material as we could get our hands on so the ethos of reduce, reuse recycle is evident. Our onsite training tank allows for ultimate flexibility when it comes to your training. Because we’re not tied to weekly swimming pool slots, you can take the plunge whenever you like!
All our school equipment is brand new and chosen specifically to facilitate modern diving. Our students learn in wing and long hose configuration from the very start.
We’re committed to keeping our sea trash free. Conducting regular underwater and beach clean ups encourages everyone to play their part in protecting the ocean. As a no touch, no take dive centre, our divers will not remove anything from the ocean except litter and fishing tackle. We’re also proud to say that we are one of the few dive centres in the UK that release lobsters back into the ocean rather than taking them out!
