Diving is strictly regulated and use of Gump Station equipment and related facilities for SCUBA is only allowed for scientific purposes.  Find out more at

Anyone wanting to dive while based at the Gump Station must obtain prior clearance from the UCB Diving Safety Officer, Jim Hayward

This clearance should be obtained in writing BEFORE arrival at the Gump Station.

Larger groups should also contact the Station beforehand to ensure that sufficient tanks and lead are available.
