Poole Boat Dives, Poole

Trip Report

Told you positively tropical, a brilliant boat my thanks to Trevor and Don, an excellent service from the bacon sarnies at the start to fresh caught mackerel, courtesy of Stephanie, on the BBQ at lunch time.

First dive on the Betsy Anna, the viz was only a couple of metres, but worth coming back to on a clear day, second, an excellent drifting scalloping dive, 75 scallops in the bag thanks to my buddy Sue. Then a kind offer from Trevor of a third dive looking for Hippocampus, seahorses, another really different dive drifting across seagrass in 2 metres of water, loads of macro life, but unfortunately no seahorses.

The weather held for the day, great company and definately a great boat.
Looking at booking another trip later in the summer, watch out for the date.

Trip Details

A brand new dive location for Somerset Divers this year. I have booked a new catamaran called Rocket out of Poole Harbour. I looked over the boat the other day and it is excellent, tail lift, plenty of room on deck and in the cabin, toilet and believe it or not a shower!! It then gets better, lunch is provided in between dives, a BBQ if weather permits, you can also fish between dives and the skipper will put your catch straight on the BBQ for you. Oh and the diving looks good as well.

2 dives, one a wreck and the other probably a reef drift dive. This is for Advanced Open Water Divers or equivalent, 2 tanks and a DSMB required.

I will be on board with another member of staff so if you want an accompanied dive you are welcome to join us at no extra charge.

This is strictly on a first come first served basis. Your place will be confirmed by email and then you have 7 days to send your cheque for the full amount payable to Somerset Divers, at 23 Labourham way, Cheddar, Somerset. BS27 3XJ. If the cheque is not received in that time your place will be cancelled and automatically go to the next person on the list. The cheques will not be cashed until just before the trip.

Should you wish to treat your other half to a bit of luxury spa treatment, while you are out diving, I have linked up with Lush in Poole so that they can have a luxury facial or synaesthesia massage at a very reasonable price, for you ignorant chaps out there, Lush is a smelly soap shop which is rather well known
