Keeping you all in the loop and up to date with some diving opportunities:-
Friday the 17th April 2015
Mark Golding, Tim North and myself are (subject to weather) diving on the Fleur de Lys out of Swanage with Swanage Boat Charters.
The cost is £20 per person, ropes off at 13:00hrs with an estimated return time of 15:15hrs
This is the wreck of a wooden fishing trawler that sunk following an explosion laying at a maximum depth of 13m it’s an ideal early season warm up.
Full details at
There is also an option of a second dive on the Kyarra if anybody is interested, however I would point out that this would be a deep reverse profile dive
Full details at
Of course the other option of a second dive under the pier.
Friday Night, the 17th of April 2015
As we are diving at Vobster Quay on Saturday so Mark, Tim and myself are staying at The Highwayman, Cannards Grave Rd
Shepton Mallet, BA4 4LY. Rooms are nice and cheap and the beers not bad either! LOL
Saturday the 18th of April 2015
Peter Olivant, Mark Golding, Phil Jefferys and myself are diving at Vobster Quay all day
We will be doing several short dives during which we will be practicing skills, the aim is to build Peters dive experience in preparation for his Rescue and Divemaster courses.
Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd May, it’s my intension to try Divers Cove (Godston, Surrey) to see how it works at a weekend. We will defiantly be there on Saturday the 2nd, however if the Viz disappears on Saturday afternoon then we will look at somewhere else (probably Vobster) for Sunday. Again we will be doing several short dives with Divemaster skills to build Peters experience.
10th of May, Although I haven’t scheduled anything definite, this date is reserved as a last ditch push if we still need to build Peters experience.
6th, 13th 20th 27th of June + 4th & 11th July – We have the Arena Pool in Bognor Regis between 16:30 to 17:30 and will be doing DSD’s, Open Water & Divemaster training. If anybody wants access to the pool just let me know. Divemasters I would appreciate your help!
Over the above dates I will be doing several speciality courses including PPB, Nitrox, Search and Recovery and Navigation as I am Woking with Ian towards his Master Scuba Diver, so if anybody fancies either a speciality or doing their MSD just drop me a line
