Please get in touch for availability updates.


24th/27th April: NOVICE PROGRESSION to HARDBOAT DIVING getting more eyes into the ocean

Calling all club instructors: This is an excellent opportunity to consolidate your trainees open water training and to assist them in making their progression from shore diving to hard boat diving without the pressure of ‘fitting in’ with club expedition ambitions.  Open to mixed groups of instructors and trainees, it will enable divers to experience buddy checks, enter the divesite from hard boat, in-water buoyancy checks, descent down a shot line, the dive, a controlled mid water ascent, and exit into the boat. This controlled environment may also provide you a good opportunity to combine it with drysuit endorsement. The dive sites will offer a safe maximum depth, good visibility and plenty of life to discover, on pinnacles, reefs, and small drop offs within the lochs of NW Skye. No instruction or equipment hire is available but you will benefit from the support and assistance of Gordon the owner/skipper who has skippered dive charters on Skye for 35 years and has a fantastic reputation. This expedition is offered at a fixed price of £210 per person for 3 night’s accommodation, 6 boat dives, and air fills, regardless of how many spaces you book. Trip requires a total of 8 people to run.
