Dive Trip Photo Gallery 

  1. Managing Director
    Cornwall
    One of the UK's best places to dive, offering reefs, wrecks and various marine creatures including large jelly fish, lobster, thornback rays and nudibranch, this trip had something for everyone.
  2. Managing Director
    Quite possibly the best UK dive site by far. With over 2000 seals on the Farne Islands, we were sure to bump into one. Their friendly inquisitive nature made the dive for all that came. We are looking forward to 2017 already.
  3. Managing Director
    A lovely country, with even more spectacular dive sites. Rays, napoleon fish, cuttlefish, puffer fish, lion fish, clown fish...you name it, and the reef had it! I don't think any of us had even seen so many varieties of fish in one location. In a single word...amazing.
