During the summer we had a fantastic visit from the wonderful Alicia Collison – An 11 year old Padi diver from Porthpean, Cornwall.
Alicia was just 11 years old when she visited us in August – and earlier that month, she had done a dive release of some of our baby Lobsters with a group off of Gyllyngvase Beach in Falmouth. She is a qualified Padi Junior Open Water Diver – and has been since the age of 10! She is our youngest person to ever do a Lobster release and we’re so impressed with her video! Have a look below!
Motivational Monday! How incredible is this – The brilliant 11 Year old Alicia Collison doing a dive release of some of our baby Lobsters! Alicia must be our youngest dive releaser EVER! Thats pretty impressive!! Thanks so much for your help Alicia!

As you can see in the video, the lobsters were released in to the wonderful eel grass beds that remain off the coast of Falmouth. These Eel grass beds were put into threat late last year when a Russian Cargo Ship ran around – so it’s amazing to see these grass beds being re-populated with some of little lobsters!
