Divers Needed to Complete Marine Survey

Marine Scotland is looking for divers to complete its national survey of coastal and marine recreation and tourism

Marine Scotland wants to hear about your marine activities around Scotland from the past 12 months.

The survey closes on 31 October and the organisation is seeking divers and watersport enthusiasts to share their experience.

Sarah Brown, Project Manager, said: 'Thousands of people have already completed the survey but we want to hear from more of you – whether you enjoy popular activities such as canoeing, kayaking or sailing, or more niche activities like land yachting, wind surfing, or scuba diving'.

The organisation aims to gather information about the importance of different recreational areas in order to create the evidence base for the forthcoming Regional Marine Plans.

The survey is available at and everyone who completes the survey stands a chance to win one of the following prizes:

  • A short break in one of Scottish Canals’ holiday cottages
  • Spa Day Experience for two guests at Portavadie’s new Spa
  • Family tickets for Inveraray Jail and Inveraray Castle
  • Two return tickets for the Kintyre Express fast passenger ferry from Campbeltown to Ballycastle in Northern Ireland

Please share this survey with your buddies and connect with Marine Scotland via Facebook and Twitter.

Businesses involved in marine recreation and tourism are encouraged to share their insight in a seperate survey which is can be accessed by clicking here

The survey, run by consultancy LUC, is a partnership between Marine Scotland, Firth of Clyde Forum, Scottish Coastal Forum, The Crown Estate, Visit Scotland, sportscotland, WHAM, Royal Yachting Association, British Marine (Scotland), Sail Scotland and Scottish Canals.
