A number of “Discover…” diving events are to be featured at the flooded quarry site for both qualified and non-divers, including general scuba, boat and shore, and full-face mask, twin-set and sidemount try-dives. The Northern Underwater Photography Group will run a photo competition, with prizes for the winner and runner-up.

A series of games will be played around the quarry area, and guest speakers, a Jacuzzi and barbecue are planned.

The event is hosted by Duttons Divers, which is based at the quarry, and supported by industry names including Apeks/Aqua Lung, Otter, PADI and Scuba Travel, which will have stands at the site.

Although Scuba Pride takes place on the same day as PADI Women’s Dive Day, it is separate from that initiative.

“The event is open to everyone and in support of the LGBT community, to promote diving for all,” said Clare Dutton, Director of Duttons Divers and the Vivian PADI 5* Instructor Development Centre.

Tickets include diving on the day and cost £11 (£14 with a burger and drink) or £6/9 for non-divers. Donations from entry fees and sales of Scuba Pride T-shirts (£15) will go to north Wales LGBT foundations.

Tickets can be purchased here.
