For some years the club has been planning a return to West Wales & this years’ Spring Bank Holiday weekend provided the perfect opportunity. We took the alpha & camped at South Cockett camp site at Broadway to give access to either Broadhaven or Dale. Air was available at Haven Diving Services in Milford Haven and dive sites included Sheep Island, Skokholm Island & the Dakotian out of Dale.
“A lovely couple of dives today out of Dale, Pembrokeshire on our other club boat, the Alpha. Very well done to my buddy David. His first boat dive, his first wreck dive (the Dakotian) and at 15.5m, his deepest dive to date.” – Tim

“Two more lovely dives today in Pembrokeshire. The wind was up and it was raining this morning but thankfully we missed the thunderstorms. After a very wet and splashy trip out, for the first dive we tucked into the lee side of Sheep Island. It was very nice and worth the uncomfortable trip out ☺”
“For the 2nd dive we went back to the Dakotian finishing up another very nice days diving with a delicious evening team meal out in the Gallion at Broadhaven.” – Tim
“Today made up for all the bad weather, low vis and underwhelming dives I’ve had over the past few years and served as a reminder of just how wonderful UK diving can be! What a fine and honed team we were! The plan was to meet in the car park at 8:00am. We had the boat launched by 8:30 and skimming our way over the mirror flat millpond sea under brilliant sunshine to Skokholm Island by 8:42. The Alpha went like a dream!
The island was stunning. So beautiful and tranquil with puffins, guillemots, razorbills in abundance and inquisitive seals sunning themselves on the rocks or spying on us from the water. What a day!” – Tim
