What is it?
Operation Tudwals is a conservation project established by us this year.
As our local dive site, we feel that it is only right to protect it. Whilst diving the area we have identified 3 key problem areas.
We aim to educate and act on all 3. Will you join us?
Have you seen beneath the waves around the Tudwals islands?
The seabed is home to an array of marine life... that does not stop close to the rocks.
Consider this when anchoring. If you have the facility on your boat to check the structure of the sea bed, try to find areas which are not rock or kelp.... even better, do you really need to anchor?
Help us to protect the marine life and reef and don't drop your anchor unnecessarily.
Many of us head to the area to see the seals, and we think that is great. Just be mindful that it is their home and they do not like us too close.
- Not moving too close. If the seals are making noises or jumping in, you are likely the reason why.
- If safe to do so, turn off your engine.
- Don't stay for too long. Like us, they aren't fans of being stared at... take a look and carry on.
If you are visiting the islands, you are likely there for a day trip... we hope you have fun! Just one request though.... the wrappers that you brought with you, please also take them home.
Whilst diving we constantly find packaging, bottles, fishing line... and all is a risk to the marine life living here.
Help us to protect the area and dispose of litter responsibly.
