For diving expeditions, we are lucky to be working alongside Dive Newquay

Meet down at Newquay Harbour and go to the steps at the end of South quay past the harbour Masters office. Meet by the ODYSSEY Marine Adventures sign. Your skippers Pete and Matt will be there waiting to greet you. Bring your own wetsuit or you can hire one for £5 from our friends at Newquay Watersports Centre . If you wish to wear your own clothing, that is not a problem, just be aware dependent on weather, you may get slightly wet. We do however provide poncho’s and modern self inflating life jackets.

This is an active adventure and all participants will be asked to sign a medical form & disclaimer to say they are fit and well and can swim in order to take part and fully understand the risks involved.

Parking is extremely limited in the harbour so we advise using one of the local car parks 


The Location

Based in the UK’s surf capital Newquay, on the North coast of Cornwall, what better position to take a voyage on the Odyssey to encounter and research the incredible native wildlife and discover the miles of stunning blue sea set against the majestic cliffs. Also uncover the underwater world with diving adventures.

With everything from sandy beaches, great surf, beautiful weather, great food, activities and on and off the water, we think there’s no better place to be. We cater for diving expeditions, corporate events, special occasions, underwater film work, marine surveys, conservation work, marine biologist research and net retrieval.

If you’re local, then why not discover a different side to your coastline? Plus, you have more choice of dates to book with us!

Now accessible from an improved dual carriageway on the A30, links via train and coach and not to mention Cornwall Airport Newquay being situated just 15 minutes from the centre of the harbour town, why wouldn’t you choose to visit or explore further one of the UK’s top destinations?

Although we are based in Newquay, Cornwall, we are happy to organise educational charters where we can bring the Odyssey boat to you. Just contact us to discuss your arrangements.
