Divers will be mourning the loss of the facilities at NDAC after it was announced the popular inland site would not be reopening for the rest of 2020.
NDAC – the National Diving & Activity Centre – is located near Chepstow, and divers travelled from far and wide to make use of its waters, which offer deep depths for technical diving and training, as well as plenty of sunken attractions in shallower waters.
In a statement published on their website and widely shared over social media at the weekend, it said:
‘Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak
Sadly, we will not be reopening the National Diving & Activity Centre to the general public during the rest of 2020.
Any purchased vouchers, or memberships, will automatically be extended to the 2021 season, when we will look forward to welcoming you all back.
We thank you for all your support, and dedication over the years, and look forward to welcoming you back next season to the National Diving & Activity Centre.'
NDAC is also home to many other activities, including a zip line, giant swing, fly boards, SUPs, kayaks, bungee jump, Atlantis water park and a drive-in cinema.
