Brixham Camping/Debris Dive/Beach Clean Weekend

We’re returning to Brixham for our second Ghost Gear Weekend. We are diving Hopes Nose and the breakwater, both are popular fishing spots. The focus is the removal of ghost fishing gear, mostly decades’ worth of mono-filament fishing line which has now formed matted bundles on the sea floor. Please see our blog from last year:  Brixhamweekend-2016.

We’re joining forces again with Warwick, the owner of Nautilus Dive Charters, a local conservationist who is passionate about helping us remove ghost gear around Brixham. All suitably qualified divers are welcome to join us. Although, please confirm (ideally on the Facebook event here) by clicking going so we have an idea of numbers. To accommodate all divers, a mixture of boat and shore diving will be available.

The camping is at Bever;ey Holidays
** Update on capmpsite venue – 14/04/2017** Please note we had a change of the camp site, it is now Beverley Holidays, the address is Goodrington Road Paignton, Devon TQ4 7JE 01803 843887 www.beverley-holidays.co.uk. It costs £16 per tent (2 people) per night and just under £20 for a small camper per night. Rob and Natallia have already booked their pitch from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 (2 nights) so you can mention you want to be next to Natallia Paliakova’s pitch at the time of booking if you like. Camping one or two nights, depending on if you wish to travel on Friday or early Saturday. We’re also planning on evening BBQs.

Brixham Dive Shack https://m.facebook.com/Brixham-Dive-Shack-202745839838361/ can do cylinder fills at the £3 a fill and help with equipment loan should anyone need anything (please let us know about your equipment needs in advance so we can see if items can be borrowed). We hope to do two boat runs to Hopes Nose on Saturday (start timing tbc, max depth 10m). Sunday: shore dive breakwater 10am, max depth 10m and Beach Clean – Breakwater Bay 10 am. If we’re lucky there are several resident seals that may decide to pay us a visit 🙂

We are looking forward to hear from you if you would like to join us!
