Castletown is a small village in Underhill on the Isle of Portland in Dorset and since the navy moved to Plymouth, Castletown has been in a state of decline. Even though Castletown still has a very solid foundation on which to re-build a business and tourism infrastructure. The vision of the Castletown Regeneration Project is to see it once again as a vibrant, busy commercial centre offering first class scuba diving facilities, a number of historical attractions celebrating the rich history of Castletown including an American-themed ‘D-Day’ attraction and a number of marine business units for the local fishing industry.
The aim is to revitalise Portland's scubadiving industry by improving the facilities and providing an Underwater Curiosity Park which is protected from adverse weather, for all levels of diver.Learn More
