5 Star Diving, Poole

Sat 27th April 2013

Trip Report

Pottering around .... Poole
The day got off to a good start, albeit rather early for an old publican!

Trevor had sausage sarnies ready and waiting as we arrived at the quay side at about 10 on Saturday morning.

Off we went in search of the Venezualia, arriving at destination, a senior member of our group, (thatís experience not age, of course!) returned from a quick look at 20 meters and exclaimed ďitís darker than a night dive at VobsterĒ!

So, not such a good start but as the day progressed our skipper, among many others diving the area tried their best to find some sights with any vis. Alas in the end this was not too be, with only the very dedicated attempting to dive the tanks and on the last look of the day, even the seahorses had moved to greener pastures! However the lunch and the BBQ provided made for a pleasant day out and I guess thatís good old English diving, great weather top side but unpredictable conditions even for the best of them.

Well done Lucy for giving it a go and hereís to a second try at this one latter on in the year.

Trip Details

We are back for a fourth year with Rocket out of Poole, the service has always been good from Trevor and his father. From the bacon butty whilst loading the boat to the fresh mackeral caught by us and put straight on the BBQ at lunchtime, thats before we even start on the diving. A wreck dive usually in the 25 - 30 m range followed by a drift. Should there be time we may even get to go after the seahorses again and Trevor assures me he now knows where they are, one day I will find them.

You will need to be Advanced Open Water with a DSMB and 2 tanks.
There will be 2 instructors on board so if you require a guided dive, no problem, no extra charge.
