  1. All divers must register on arrival to take part.
  2. Donations can be made at the desk also, please leave contact details to be entered into the prize draw.
  3. Please be as efficient as possible in entering the water whilst remaining safe. We have lots of divers to get in the water for the record, delay will mean that some of the first divers will otherwise be having a very long, cold dive!
  4. First divers in expect dive time of approximately 40 – 45 minutes
  5. Please ensure that you are counted into the water by our organisers

Thank you for attending Scuba Santas 2015, an event to raise money for the DDRC and RNLI, you make it what it is!
