Come & explore a unique, purpose built dive site adjacent to Portland Harbour
Over three years ago, I had the idea of creating a novel and unique dive site in Balaclava Bay, adjacent to Portland Harbour that is ideal for beginners and a haven for the more-experienced divers.
Some of the best diving in the south coast
The Underwater Curiosity Park is in Balaclava Bay, which is adjacent to Portland Harbour.
The Park itself provides a large number of interesting artefacts to discover, explore and tease. I don’t want to give too much away, but divers can dive an established wreck site: ‘the Dredger’ and then, following a guide rope, experience a ruined Roman temple, encounter various apparatus and artefacts and, subject to the season, see an ambundance of marine life.
One of the reasons I wanted to build this was to encourage divers to the area.
My initiative is being supported by local dive schools and national magazines and websites and the number of new divers to the area is on the increase.
