Padstow

Padstow is home to the National Lobster Hatchery. They take females that have been caught by fishermen and grow the baby lobsters; we launch out of the harbour and take the babies to be released back into the wild.

NDAC

The National Diving & Activity Centre. You have to cross the Severn Bridge in order to get here. Reaches 70m in places and probably has the most interesting objects of the quarries near Bristol.

Kyarra

A wreck reachable by launching from Swanage. The Kyarra is a large 7000 ton steamer with lots of life and swim throughs. At 30m deep it is for sports diver and above. Amongst the metal and sand can be found lots of glass and other artefacts. It’s very easy to Read more…

Gozo

Possibly the cheapest abroad diving you can do. Almost all is shore diving, if you are at least Sports Diver and have been to Gozo before, or are with someone who has, then you do not need a guide. Life is typical Meditteranean fare, but the visibility can be stunning Read more…

Farne Islands

A group of islands off the Northumberland coast, famous for the grey seals that live there. If this is done as a weekend trip, we will charter a boat as it is a very long way to drive, but always worth it.

Fairy Cove

Fairy Cove is a shore dive that is very shallow but has lots of gulleys to explore. Parking is available in the multi-storey car park near the steps to descend down to the beach.

Egypt

Normally done as a liveaboard by UBUC, Egypt has some of the best and cheapest diving available, especially out of season. Big pelagics, great wrecks and 5* liveaboards make this a trip not to be missed.

Cromhall

A quarry, very close to Bristol. The nearest place you could go diving, and also the cheapest of the quarries near Bristol. The diving itself though is poor. Only used for training.
