  • Weekend Dive Trip to Iceland - Silfra (Hunt for Norther Lights) 12-16 Sept 2019

    • What we'll do We are planning a dive trip to Reykjavic in Iceland. Here you will be able to dive Silfra which is frequently rated as one of the world's top ten dive sites, with up to 100 meters of underwater visibility. We will take you where few diving tours in the world can – into the continental rift between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates! Thingvellir National Park is home to Silfra fissure, an out-of-this-world subaquatic chasm of sublime colors, mystical rock formations, serene beauty, and great geological significance. The crystal clear water that fills the canyon is the product of glacier meltwater passing through porous lava fields in a slow-filtrating process that takes up to 100 years! The result is water so crisp and clean that underwater visibility is virtually limitless. Drift peacefully along with the lazy current as you soar through the depths and explore a realm beyond description. We will also be able to spend an evening/late night hunting for the northern lights while we are in Reykjavic. This location is one of the best places to see the Northern Lights. The Northern Lights are not a guarantee due to the solar cycles and the requirement for clear skies. The trip has been arranged to provide the best chance due to the new moon providing pitch black skies and the winter months bring long nights. For this trip you will need to be PADI Dry Suit qualified. This trip is not until 2019 so you have time to qualify PADI Dry Suit in England before the trip. The group runs 3 PADI Dry Suit Course days a year so why not contact me know and put your name down to register for the course. The dive centre in Reykjavic does offer the PADI Dry Suit Course as a 2 day experience which will include 1 days diving at Silfra. Accommodation, flight details and diving prices will follow shortly. If you require any further information please email me on [masked] • What to bring • Important to know

  • Long Weekend Dive Trip - Malta Sat 14 Sept 2019 to Sun 22 Sept 2019

    Malta - Sliema/St Julian's 5 Star Dive Centre - Malta

    We are planning a 7-8 day dive trip to St Julian's, Malta from Saturday 14 September 2019 to Sunday 22 September 2019. We already have a group of divers interested in this trip. Members will have the option of either flying out Thursday or the Friday and returning on the Sunday or Monday. You will be able to fit in 6 days of diving if not more. This will mean that you could fit in around 10+ dives. The diving will be the best that Malta, Gozo and Comino have to offer. If you have never been to Malta and Gozo this is your opportunity. You will be undertaking the best dives Malta and Gozo have to offer. Malta & Gozo has a great reputation for shore diving and wreck diving. The weather in October is always very good and will reach late 20C. The prices for the diving will be in the region of[masked] Euros for 6 dives. I will update the prices for 10 dives shortly but will be over[masked] Euros. Equipment hire will be 25.00 Euros per day. Great dive locations include: Bleinheim Bomber - You will need to travel 800m due east of xorb il-Ghajn, off the southeast coast. The dive is situated at a depth of 42m. The easiest way is by boat. This site can be choppy at times but in a fairly well sheltered location. This site is highly recommended. It is unknown whether the aeroplane was a victim to defence fire or crash landed due to engine failure. Either way this plane is a great dive site for all keen divers. You will find both the engine and the wings in tact. although the fore section of the fuselage has been smashed off and now lies several meters in front of the main part of the wreckage . Although it must be expressed that this site is recommended for experienced divers only due to the depth at which this dive takes place. The condition of the bomber is also another issue for concern. Maximum depth – 42 metres Wreck Um El Faroud - You will find this site 140m off wied iz-zurrieq headland in a southwesterly direction. The easiest way is by boat from the shore. This site can be exposed to swells and can have a current in windy weather. This vessel was hit and sunk in September 1998, the ill fated Um El Faroud had previously stayed in the Harbour at Valletta for three years following a terrible explosion on board that killed nine Maltese dockyard workers. A memorial brass plaque was placed in memory of these workers. At present you will find the ship in an upright position on the seabed. The vessel is an impressive site and a highly recommended dive. The wreck is completely open for easy access but caution should be taken as not yet been made fully safe inside, and should only be attempted with proper training. Maximum depth –34 metres Accommodation The accommodation will be in a modern 3 star hotel so you will get great value for money. The Hotel is also within walking distance to the Dive Centre which will be based in St Julian's. The price of the accommodation will be in the region of £125.00 - £150.00 for the 4 nights. The accommodation will depend on the size of the group. Accommodation options will be confirmed prior to booking. Airport transfers from the airport to the hotel will be 20 Euros each.

If you haven’t dived for a while, or are a bit apprehensive about getting back in the water and want to freshen up your skills then a PADI Scuba Review is for you. Most dive centres around the world will insist that you complete a Scuba Review if you haven't dived for 12 months or longer. You’ll run through the important aspects of the theory and go through the important skills you learn't on your PADI Open Water course in the safety and comfort of a heated swimming pool. The course normally takes 3-4 hours. Please remember to bring along your PADI certification card and log book. POOL SESSION - £20.00 If you are looking to just spend time in the water and you are already qualified as PADI Open Water then you can join us for this session and spend time in the pool testing out kit and practicing. Lets be honest it is difficult to find the opportunity to have time in a pool testing out kit and getting used to equipment or dive computers. This way you will not have the pressure of group holiday diving and you can have around 1 hour 30 minutes to do what you want. If you want to undertake any of the above dives then RSVP and let me know which dive you want. All dives will need to be booked in by us and paid for so payment will be requested prior to the event itself once dive has been confirmed.
