Memory Lane – Portland (Oct 2014)

5th October, 2014 : Sundays dive at Portland was, for me, a trip down memory lane. I first dived the area in 1985, and horrified to note in my logbook the last time was in 2002. Portland then was a regular club destination, we would either dive the Countess or the Hood and then, because on the old navy tables…

Farne Islands and St Abbs (Sep 2014)

by John. 6th – 14th September, 2014 : A mixed group (both gender and diver/non-diver) of 17 people had a dive/tourism holiday in the lovely area of Northumberland with diving at St Abbs (two days) and boat diving around the Farne Islands (5 days).

Galapagos (Mar 2014)

by Laurence. 9th – 23rd March, 2014 :We don’t expect to make this trip more than once so it merits reasonable coverage on the website. Tourism on the Galapagos Islands is very tightly controlled in order to prevent damage to their fragile ecosystems. The diving is all geared towards the “big stuff”, pelagics. The boat…

Brixham – Theory in Practice (Jan 2014)

  Sunday 26th January, 2014 :  It’s great when theory works in practice. Although there were strong south westerly winds and storms forecast for today,the wind direction ‘in theory’ meant it would be perfectly safe and okay to dive at Brixham Breakwater (which faces north and is thus sheltered from them). Not having been in the sea…
