The average visibility is 21-25ft/6-8m. This dive site provides bathrooms and airfills. Training platforms are available.

Diving Centre is situated in the heart of the Padarn Country Park in the
village of Llanberis, North Wales and nestles at the foot of Mount Snowdon
in the beautiful Snowdonia Reserve.

Vivian Slate Quarry was last worked in 1958 and has since filled with
water from run off’s and it is also believed to be fed from underwater
springs which connect it to Lake Padarn itself.

Being a slate quarry
means clean, clear water with very little sediment.

The Diving Centre is set in a very picturesque location and
offers safe, sheltered diving whatever the weather for all levels of diver.


Vivian itself ranges
from 6 to 18m deep and usually offers great visibility all year round.
There is a platform anchored at 6m for training along with various things
to see, such as trout, common eels, sunken boats, van, blast hut, house
& gnome garden.
