UK Trips Update

UK Trips Update

We still have spaces on a few of our UK trips this year. With the sun now out, and the season just beginning, don’t miss out on getting the chance to dive some of the UK most awesome destinations. Dives are varied and include wrecks, wildlife and scenery, and all our dives are open to qualified divers with UK experience ….. you don’t have to be a club member to dive!!

The full list of trips appear on our dive calendar but here are some of the highlights:

14th – 16th June  – St Abbs / Eyemouth

St AbbsThis has got to be one of my most favourite ever destinations. Who needs tropical waters when you can go and play with these beautiful seals. Grey seals can be seen almost anywhere along the coast at just about any time of year.  Whales, dolphins and porpoises (cetaceans), can also be seen throughout the year but the summer is the time when there are most sightings.  The harbour porpoise is the species most commonly seen, but it’s also worth looking out for bottle-nosed and white beaked dolphins and minke whales.  See if you can spot the Wolf fish and Lumpsuckers or some of the amazing varieties of Nudibanchia!

This trip is a 3 day trip which costs £235, it includes eight dives across three days and two nights accommodation on Friday, 14 & Saturday 15 June 2013 and a cooked breakfast!

We are diving on Wavedancer, with one of the area’s most experienced skippers.

5th – 9th August – Isle of Man

Isle of Man 1The Isle of Man is located off the north west coast of England in the middle of the Irish Sea, it offers some of the most spectacular and varied diving in the British Isles.  Mann has a tidal range of up to eight metres, this vast movement of water sweeps the island twice a day, bringing rich feeding for a vast array of marine life, the underwater visibility is generally superb and the dive sites outstanding.

This is a five day recreational wrecks & reefs trip for 8 divers, departing from Menai Bridge on Monday, 5 August, returning back to Anglesey on Friday, 9 August 2013.  The sea crossing takes approximately 4 hrs.  We’ll be stopping off for one dive on both the outward and return journey, and there’s a minimum of two dives a day (subject to weather conditions), around the Isle of Man on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from our base in Port St Mary.

Diving on Scott Waterman’s boat Protector, a 38′ halmatic rib with all the diver comforts you would expect to find on a hard boat, including an hydraulic diver lift and enclosed heated cabin and covered area.

10th – 11th August – Anglesey

Anglesey 1We are again diving on Protector which is moored at St George’s Pier near the Menai Bridge, providing easy access to the fabulous dive sites around Anglesey and further out into the Irish Sea.  Anglesey wrecks include the Derbent, Albanian, Delfina, Kincorth, Dakota, Liverpool, Kimyalying, Segontium and Minerva to name a few.

This trip costs £180, it includes two days diving with two dives per day and two nights accommodation including a fine Welsh cooked breakfast.
