ScubaFest Cornwall is just under three months away – so make sure the 3rd to the 5th May is in your dive diary and kick start the 2014 season the Pentewan way!
For three days over the Spring Bank Holiday – Saturday 3rd to Monday 5th May 2014 – scuba divers take over the Pentewan Sands Holiday Park , near St Austell, to dive, meet, socialise, and have a good time.
Organised by the Scuba Industry Trade Association (SITA), there will be shore diving, RHIB diving and hard boat diving available for divers and groups. And, with a fantastic beach at Pentewan and free launching courtesy of Suunto, dive clubs are also encouraged to bring their own RIB and make the most of the whole weekend.
Plus, there is a host of other activities going on to keep divers and their families entertained, including:
- Free try dives with BSAC
- Rebreather tasters and diver workshops
- BSAC Beachcombing sessions down on the beach
- The divers’ ‘Toy Town’ feature, bringing together manufacturers such as Suunto, Apeks, Typhoon and many more
- Evening entertainment, including live bands and karaoke
Accommodation – including static caravans, camping or caravan pitches – should be booked directly with Pentewan Sands Caravan Park – call 01726 843 485 or go to www.pentewansands.com.

Indo siren destroyed by fire
Indo Siren, a vessel from the Master Liveaboards Fleet, has been destroyed by a fire this morning. Thankfully, all guests and crew members are safe.
Master Liveaboards have released the following statement:
During our current cruise in Raja Ampat, on the morning of 30th November, a fire broke
out on Indo Siren. At the current time we are still assessing the events around the incident,
and will be working with authorities, so cannot currently comment further.
All guests and staff departed the boat, without further incident. They are now with our
ground crew who have organised accommodations while we assist with all their other
needs going forwards.
We are currently evaluating the issues created by the fire on upcoming trips. Guests who
are likely to be affected by enforced cancellations or changes will be contacted in due time
when plans are finalised.
We are incredibly grateful that this incident was not more serious and that everyone who
was onboard, both crew and guests, are safe and well.
