UK Coastal Sites
The majority of the boats used are Hard Boats with lifts, and we usually fit 2 dives in per day, a wreck and a drift dive which may or may not include a food foray. Scallops and crabs and the occasional lobster might find themselves being put into a bag and being carried back to the boat as we finish our dive, although sometimes it’s just pictures being taken. Please visit the Gallery for photographs of just some of the wildlife found off UK shores. Artefacts on the wrecks are left where they are for future divers.
Once a year we organise a big club dive which normally takes place in summer. A number of hard boats (usually two or three) are booked for 2 – 3 days of diving and an optional group meal is organised for the Saturday night – a good time is always had by all!
Most years there is one week long UK trip. Popular destinations include Scapa Flow in the Orkney Islands, for the opportunity to dive on the famous WW1 wrecks. Also the Shetland Islands for those Northernmost wrecks, and Lochlaine on the Sound of Mull for wrecks and scenic dives.
There have been weeks in Cornwall and Pembroke giving members and their families the opportunity to combine diving with a family holiday. Accommodation can be in hotels, B&B’s, cottages, caravans or tents depending on your individual choice and budget.
Members have also grouped together on holidays to warmer climes such as The Red Sea, Thailand, Florida, Truk Lagoon, and various destinations in the Caribbean.
