National Diving and Activity Centre - Try the Arctic undersuit on a dive at the National Diving and Activity Centre
The National Diving and Activity Centre is based in Chepstow, Gloucestershire, Our flooded quarry offers some of the best inland dive conditions in Europe with a range of depths from 0-9, 9-18, 26, 45, 50 and 80 metres. The facilities on site are there to make life as easy as possible. The water's edge can be reached by walking, or using the courtesy vehicles that will take you and your kit from the parking areas to the 144 metres of pontoon every 20 minutes. And to help you further kit trolleys and climbing points are also available. As you would expect, the centre has full rescue facilities and fully trained staff. We also have on site accommodation in the form of wooden wigwams, classrooms for instructor and club use, a shop, a brand new state of the art gas room, equipment hire, equipment servicing, a cafe, changing rooms and toilets.
The waters have many attractions including, amongst many others, a BAE Aircraft, a Saracen Armoured Vehicle, two Wessex Helicopters and a Stalwart Amphibious vehicle.
We also now have available onsite accommodation available in the form of wooden wigwams. Sleeping up to five adults, Wigwams are the ultimate eco cabin; double-glazed, secure, cosy and warm whatever the time of year. A low cost alternative to hotels and B&Bs, our Wigwams truly offer all year round camping, and the best bit, no pitching a tent in the rain!

Products for Testing
NDAC has the Arctic undersuit available to test.
These will be issued with all Drysuit rentals, and to students on courses where school drysuits are being used. Additionally, the sets will be used on a “try before you buy” basis. Rent a complete Arctic set for £10. This will be deducted from the subsequent purchase of a new Arctic thermal 3-piece set on production of the receipt.
The Arctic's two layers of high insulation, low bulk fabric, ensure exceptional levels of thermal protection. Constructed with comfort and utility in mind, the minimalist design provides outstanding performance under closer fitting neoprene drysuits.
