With little current to speak of and numerous spots of dazzling coral, it is hard to resist a day of scuba diving in Falmouth Harbour.  Of course, you can't dive on open waters without first becoming certified, so you'll have to take a few courses in advance of your trip – or do it when you arrive. 

There are two dive operators, some dive shops, and a small number of dive sites to choose from.
