GLUG dive trip - SWANAGE - Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th July 2017
Who's going? Fi, Mark, Hilton
This trip has something for beginners and experienced divers alike. You can choose to dive one day or both days. On Saturday we will dive under Swanage Pier, one of the best shore dives in the UK. With a maximum depth of around 5m, Swanage Pier is ideal for some nice gentle UK diving with lots of interesting wildlife to see. This location is ideal as a warm-up dive for more experienced divers, or will provide a good place for less experienced divers to build their experience and diving skills.
On Sunday, less experienced divers will have the chance to do some more diving under the pier. For experienced divers (PADI Adv or BSAC Sports with experience of wreck and drift diving and diving in temperate waters) we have booked 8 spaces on a hardboat run by Divers Down We will be diving the wreck of the Kyarra (max depth 30m) followed by a drift round Old Harry Rocks. We’ve booked the morning dives, so there is even time for you to squeeze in a cheeky third dive under the pier in the afternoon, or plot an early getaway.
For the pier dive cost will be £2.50 per diver, payable at the pier office.
For the Sunday boat dive, total cost will be £50 (tbc). To secure your place on the boat dive, please pay a deposit of £25.
This area of Dorset has much to offer the non-diver, with fantastic walks as well as pretty villages and some very nice pubs – so why not bring along your other half? Accommodation-wise, there are various campsites and B&Bs to choose from in the area, but book early as it is a popular destination and accommodation can get booked up early.
