£20,000 raised for the RNLI so far…
Around the 2012 event we passed the amazing milestone of £20,000 raised for the RNLI. Well done to everyone that has been involved with the event since we first started in 2007.

We’ll be back soon to start planning for Scuba Santas 2013, lets make it another awesome year!
Welcome to Scuba Santas!
Scuba Santas is organised by Lloyd Watkin with help from members of the UK diving forum called Yorkshire Divers. Each year around Christmas time we dress up in santa costumes to raise money for a charity.
In 2007 we raised a few hundred pounds for the RNLI with 8 participating santas, a viking, a snowman, and a fairy. We’ve now raised over £20,000 and motivated people to start similar events all over the world since. The next event will be held at an inland dive site called National Diving and Activity Centre near Chapstow.
Not only is this a great advert for British scuba diving, it provides much needed funds for the volunteer life savers at Christmas, and despite the freezing temperatures puts a smile on some otherwise very grumpy people’s faces! Again this year it has been decided by members of YD to support the RNLI for all the good work they do each and every day of the year…
If you want to join the Scuba Santas please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
