St Abbs Sept 28/29/30th 2018

Just got back from a great long weekend. Dived Bass Rock, Isle of May, Ebb Carr, Black Carr, Anenome Gully and Wuddy Rocks swim through toward Black Carr with Paul Crowe on Shore Diver.

Lovely weather, great group, Paul and Rachel looked after us well as usual.

Visibility iffy for the first dive but improved through the days and was good for the final day.

Pembroke September 2018

5 days in the furthest corner of Wales. A spot not many of us had dived before. Difficult to get a group, difficult to get a date with good tides and the weather is always going to be questionable.

We got there and dived everyday and had sunshine 4 out of 5 days. Fabulous !

Out of Mallaig, May 2018

  One fine Saturday morning 12 of us headed up north (really north) to Mallaig, Scotland via Loch Lomond, The Green Welly Shop, Fort William and Glen Coe.

There to meet the MV Halton and our skipper for the week, Bob Anderson.

The weather would drive our itinerary and it was over 10 years since any of us had dived that area. With the prospect of some days of fine weather but a storm front on its way, we set off north, between Skye and the mainland, stopping for a shakedown dive in Loch Nevis.

Can this really be Scotland, we asked ourselves, as we basked in sunshine, passed a cruise ship at anchor off Lochalsh, and proceeded under the Skye bridge.

We journeyed to the Summer Isles and docked at Ullapool, Raasay, Lochalsh, Inverie and Mallaig.

Dive sites: The Crowlins, Fairweather 5, Jambo, Innisjura, Holm Island, Port Napier, Kylerhea, Loch Nevis
