2016 Diving Trips and Weekends
July 23rd and 24th
An Easy Buddy dive for the first weekend of the School Summer Holidays to Trearddur Bay on the Holy Island , for some sea diving that should not be too difficult for even the newest of divers.
As it is within a 2 1/2 hour drive from here, lots of diving can still be done over the course of the two days.
A consistently great dive and worth repeating in lieu of the plethora of macro life in and among the gullies.
North Wales and Anglesey have some great dive sites both offshore and onshore, however for many Trearddur Bay shore dive is special.
It encompasses much of the atypical marine life you'll see in this area,
and is located amongst a "hotpotch" of gullies, mini-walls, trenches and holes.
Trearddur Bay is a bay within the main Penrhyn bay and on its southern flank is a headland known as Ravenspoint.
Several dives can be made like Ravenspoint gully, or The Rocks, or Porth Diana Gully which is best accessed via high water.
Many divers are introduced to UK diving at this very place.
Why not Do the PADI Peak Performance Course whilst you are here
Trefor Pier Spring Bank Holiday
Trefor Pier on Saturday 28th May and doing the first dive from around 2pm followed by further dives at Trefor Pier on Sunday 29th May.
Then on Bank Holiday Monday we will take the short trip to Vivian Quarry for a couple more dives and to chill out and relax in the quarry.
Trefor Pier..This really is a lovely dive, even though the surface area is relatively small, there is lots to see and it's not hard to spend a hour or so here, just meandering under the pier.It is a very handy site for divers, you can park right along side the concrete pier and with a very short walk to the steps. The local council have even placed some strategic dive kitting up benches (picnic tables), so it really couldn’t be easier.The stanchions of the pier are covered in life with spider crabs, anemones, hydroids and star fish. The actual dive site under the pier is very short and so you must take a good torch and proceed very slowly examining every inch as this is British Micro diving. The fallen metal work is ideal cover for the many blennies, pipe fish, prawns, lobsters.
PADI Rescue Diver course at Trefor Pier. For those of you who would like to do the rescue diver course this is an ideal place .
August Bank Holiday
The presence of the nearby Gulf Stream and unpolluted waters of the Firth of Lorne make Oban a mecca for UK diving enthusiasts. There is enough diving here to suit everyone whether pleasant scenic dives, wrecks both shallow and deep, hairy drift dives with tidal flows exceeding 15 knots and deep drop offs. The marine life is abundant with walls covered in anemones, sea squirts and sponges, lobsters and conger eels lingering in crevices and the occasional visit from common seals.
There is some good shore diving close to Oban itself with the drift round Dunollie Castle being very popular but the more spectacular dives are in the Sound of Mull and off the Garvellachs. In the Sound the wrecks of the Rondo and the Hispania are excellent and the cliff dives at Lochaline and Calve Island being classics.
