Well the Cornish wind can really blow. Had a great time my first real open sea dive. Now I've lived in Cornwall for ten years many years ago and why didn't I do this back then. The diving is spot on the Cornish laid back approach still makes me chuckle and somehow very relaxing. ( I'm on holiday so chilled out.) The food it brilliant. Proper portion sizes. Just try the sausage rolls. The shop is fine and camping is ideal. It's what camping is all about. It's nice to get a shower and to me they are fine. Now every time I go back to Cornwall to see friends I'm going diving. The road is bumpy so drive careful remember this is the coastline in Cornwall. The sea views are just the best in the country. Well done guys and girls I love the countryside and the diving it's perfect. Oh and thanks for making my first dive so good. All staff friendly and great fun with good skills and knowledge plus all very helpful. I will be back directly. Proper job.

There was a group of us most of whom went diving, some for the first time down there again everyone admired the sealife and the variety of conditions in the sea. Thoroughly good weekend (even just for chilling out!!).
Again hats off to all the crew down there top jobs again, definitely will be back soon

We camped here for a week in August and did some shore dives on Drawna Rocks and some boat dives from Celtic Kitten. We had a great time. It is a fabulous place and the staff are helpful and freindly.

This was mine and my husband's first dive since getting our Open Water Diver qualifications a few weeks ago. We were excited and apprehensive at the same time about getting into the water again as 'real' divers! We needn't have worried though, as after getting a warm and friendly welcome from the reception staff, we were placed in the very capable hands of Divemaster Darren. He was very patient with us putting our kit together (slowly but correctly) then he escorted us out for a great dive. He was very knowledgable and informative and pointed out a fascinating array of marine life, which he later helped us to identify with the use of identification charts. We felt very comfortable at Porthkerris Divers, there was a lovely relaxed atmosphere there but at the same time, we felt very safe in their hands. We will definitely be returning here, hopefully later in the year when we have both completed our Advanced Open Water courses. Then maybe we'll be able to try a boat dive, for even more fun and adventure.
