Humongous thanks to the most tolerant and supportive instructor I could ever have wished for! Today's dive in the Lake was awesome and I loved every minute! Next dive - Hikkaduwa in Sri Lanka in 3 weeks!!!
Underwater Adventures have blessed me with a whole new world. Please ensure you contact them for all your scuba inquiries! Stephen is an exceptional instructor and the other
divemasters involved really have been outstanding throughout my 6 months of training and preparation... it has been a long road but I am over the moon. I am now a PADI open water scuba diver and immensely proud of myself!

On the 21st of April, The Underwater Adventures Dive Club will be running it's first sea diving trip of the year to Swanage. This trip is perfect for new divers or if you would just like to wash the cobwebs off after the cold winter months ready for a year of some awesome UK diving.
We will be starting the day with a dive under the pier which has a max depth of 4 metres and the price of which is included in your Pier entry fee which is £1.80 if you walk in and £10.50 for a car to park all day. To park on the pier it is recommended that you arrive by 06:30 at the latest to make sure you get a space on the pier or if you would like a lay-in you can park up the hill a little bit after dropping your dive gear at the entrance, this is a little more expensive but save you having to get up as early.
If you need dive equipment for this trip you can hire it from the dive club and you can find the prices by CLICKING HERE
There is a dive shop and filling station on the pier so you can get fills and any bits and pieces you have forgotten to bring with you. 
Entry for the dive is down the steps to the side of the pier and high tide is at 10:24 so perfect for a morning dive or two.

During the afternoon we have booked to dive the Valentine tanks with Swanage boat charters on their boat "Viper" which is the larger of the two boats they run from the pier with plenty of space and a really good tail lift for getting out of the water with your dive equipment. If you have never used a dive lift before, you will love this as it makes getting out of the water so much easier and you will never want to go back to using Ladders again. The boat dive is £35 each to be paid upfront.
The Valentine tanks are a couple of World War Two tanks at about 15 metre, depending on teh tide, and are normally full of life which you can see from the video we shot on last year's dive to this wreck.

Weekends Wreck diving, 11th and 12th of May

Then over the weekend of the 11th and 12th of May, we will be heading to Swanage again for a weekend's diving. This will be 2 boat dives each day but we have not booked anything for this trip yet as we will wait to see what wrecks those of you who wish to join us would like to do, but I am thinking we would do the wreck of the Kyarra as that is the most popular wreck to dive out of Swanage plus maybe a couple like the Clan Macvey and/or the Aeolian Sky. As these are deeper wrecks around the 30-metre mark, we can also book some spaces on some shallower wrecks for those who would like to build up a bit more experience in UK diving.

August the 30th to the 1st of September
Over this long weekend, we will be down in Porthkerris on the south coast of Cornwall. This is a lovely little bay on the east coast of the Lizard peninsular which has been set up for scuba diving with accommodation and camping on site plus a dive shop, filling station, and a cafe on the beach. There are two beaches, the main one slopes off slowly giving you the chance to dive in the forest of kelp looking for all teh marine life the kelp supports. The other beach slopes off faster until you reach 3 lines of rocky reefs which again are just full of life.

Also from the beach, the dive centre there runs two boats to take you out to explore the local wrecks and reefs and if you fancy something unbelievably beautiful, you can take a trip out to dive the Manicals reef with an abundance of Jewel anemones in yellow, blues, reds, pinks, and greens, as colourful as any tropical reef.
If the weather is good enough we will hopefully get the chance to go out and and swim with the blue sharks. This is an amazing experience and we are so lucky to get the chance to spend time with these amazing creatures.

The cost of this trip depends on what you would like to do so I will break it down for you. The onsite accommodation includes unlimited shore diving and is based on staying 3 nights (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights) but you don't have to stay for every night if you don't want to or have to get back for work. We have booked the log cabin which is £99 for the 3 nights per person. Camping is £15 per person per night or if you would like electricity that goes up to £22. There are other rooms available in the main building starting at £70 per person per night which we can use if we get a lot of interest.
As I mentioned above, the shore diving is included in the cost of the accommodation but if you would like to head further out the places on the boats range from £65 to £80 for two boat dives a day depending on which boat you would like to use.
Equipment hire price from the dive club can be found
The Blue Shark trip lasts all day and does involve a long trip out to deep water and as such is £150 per person and there is a minimum age of 16 for those trips.

10th and 11th of August
The sea around Plymouth is the resting place of hundreds of wrecks making it one of the best wreck diving places in the world and we are heading there over the weekend of the 10th and 11th of August to go diving with In Deep dive charters. During this weekend we will have the choice to dive any of the wrecks we want including the world-famous James Egan Layne and the purposefully sunk HMS Scilla.

The package is £265 each for the weekend and this includes accommodation at the Leonardo’s Hotel which has a large carpark for us and will be giving us Breakfast on the Saturdays and Sunday mornings. Free use of the Mount Batten Watersports Center for showers after the dives and we can use their bar with a 10% discount on drinks. Two days diving with two dives each day from one of Indeep's hard boats, all of which have tail lifts for ease of getting out of the water. Free air fills and half-price Nitrox for the dives plus we also get hot food and drinks on the boats between the dives all included in the price so this is a very good deal. If you need to hire any equipment for this trip, please CLICK HERE for prices

The plan for the weekend is to travel down Friday evening where we can meet for dinner and give everyone a chance to get to know each other. Saturday morning we will be up early for breakfast before getting on the boat outside the front of the Mount Batten Watersports Centre at 8:30 am, The two dives along with travel and a break between the dives should take between 5 and 6 hours when we will head back to the boat ramp and get off the boat and put away our staff before having a bit of a wash and relax before heading into Plymouth for dinner and drinks, not too many though as we have another early start in the morning. Sunday will be pretty much the same except we will need to book out of the hotel but fear not, we will still have access to the nice hot showers in the Mount Batten water sports centre after our dives so we can refresh and get comfortable for our drive home Sunday evening.

If you would like to book on to this trip please get in contact either through WhatsApp at 07805045867 or send us a message through the contact page which you can find
