My partner and I are fairly new to diving & have just been given a holiday Perran Sands - just wondered if anyone knows of any decent diving school in the area that would be willing to take us diving

You won't be diving out of Perran - nothing to see. Miles of sandy beaches with some good waves when the conditions are right. Take your surfboard.

Actually Perran is a 'dive' itself, apart from the watering hole (Bar on the beach).

You're prob best off going to Newquay.

Golf is better in Perranporth than Newquay though.

There are some cracking dives around Perranporth, you will need a boat for most though. You can shore dive from St Agnes, but its a PITA in summer time with all the holiday makers. There's a good shore dive at Newquay.

Bawden Rocks off St Agnes is a top dive, Chick Rock is also good. A little further out you have as many wrecks as you could ever want. The sea is flat at the moment and perfect for north coast diving. BUT, there is no-one apart from Chris at Newquay taking divers out there. Craig might in his RHIB if you can get a few together.

As Neil says shore dives aren't that easy around there as the sea slopes very slowly into the Atlantic.
