The National Diving & Activity Centre is based in Chepstow, Gloucestershire, Our flooded quarry offers some of the best inland dive conditions in Europe with a range of depths from 0-9, 9-18, 26, 45, 50 and 80 metres. The waters have many attractions including, amongst many others, a BAE Aircraft, a Saracen Armoured Vehicle, two Wessex Helicopters and a Stalwart Amphibious vehicle. The site is also home to a Giant 3G Swing, a 700m Long Zip Wire and Segway Active. We have on site accommodation at our Wooden Wigwam Village and we serve a fantastic selection of food and drink at the View Cafe Bar.
