I've booked the hard boat Moonshadow for 3 days diving out of Falmouth for the August bank holiday.
Don't worry, it's being fitted with a diver lift over the winter and the benches are also being replaced.
The cost will be £150 for the 3 days diving. Cylinder hire is also available at £5 a day, which includes the air fill. They have mostly 12l cylinders and some 10l. Any other kit can also be arranged from Atlantic Scuba, though I don't think they have any dry suits. The sea temperature is likely to be 16C.
The boat launches out of Mylor yacht harbour where it costs £5 a day to park. The plan is to do two dives a day, so you'll need two cylinders and the sites will include wrecks and some of the best scenic rock pinnacles in England. The viz in Cornwall is usually pretty good by UK standards, though saying that has probably jinxed it.
There is room for 12 divers on the boat. If we don't fill it, the skipper will look to fill the extra spaces. I will collect the money a couple of months in advance to forward onto the dive centre.
Dive sites are about 25m deep so you must be qualified to PADI AOW/BSAC Sports/equivalent. Every diver must have a delayed SMB and be comfortable deploying it.
There's plenty of accommodation in Falmouth. We can coordinate for those who want to share nearer the time, though I will leave the booking to you. The usual accommodation websites have lots of options, just pick somewhere reasonably central in Falmouth town
