Diving in Hurghada, Egypt

I've been diving for just short of ten years, and this was the first trip where I have seen a coral reef, and I have to say I thought if was amazing. There is just so much life in one area that you can struggle to take it all in, the colours, shapes, formations, all... Continue Reading →

UK Scuba Season Round Up 1!

Diving this year has so far been a mixed bag! From zero visibility to 10 metres or more, from perfectly long slacks to a non stop current throughout. You get the picture, it's been a bit unknown, and this is why I'm posting this post now as once again the shuttle boats have been cancelled... Continue Reading →

Dark, Deep and a Touch of Narcosis!

I've missed out on multiple sea dives this year, simply due to the unpredictable British weather. However, last weekend the sun was shining and the sea was calm, so diving was definitely on the cards, the Aeolian Sky was our wreck of choice. We made our way out of the harbour, and an hour's shuttle... Continue Reading →

A New Diving Lake in Kent!

A couple of weeks ago I was diving at the National Diving Activity Centre (NDAC), when a friend mentioned this new diving lake in Kent. On getting home, I did a bit of research and found what he was on about, and set out on my first free weekend to scout it out. The website... Continue Reading →

Diving and Training at NDAC

This year's winter diving has been course orientated in preparation for the upcoming dive season. The last part of this was to complete the accelerated decompression procedures course, and brush up on twin set shut down drills. I actually did this course a few years ago, but never put in for the tickets, however this... Continue Reading →

Scuba Diving Guide Experiences

It has taken me a long while, to get around to writing this article. Partly due to the motivation to write about past life experiences, when my current experiences are less than interesting! It’s fair to say that my time as a scuba diving guide was for the most part fantastic. The opportunity to get... Continue Reading →

I’ve Got Crabs!

Hermit crab Prideauxs hermit crab Sea hare Cleaner shrimp Anemone hermit crab Locust lobster Unfortunately, at the moment, we... Continue Reading →

A few Nudies for you!!

As the title clearly states, I have a whole bunch of nudibranch pictures to share with you! I love these little guys, they come in all shapes and sizes. I'm forever searching them out on dives and after two months of continuous diving I have spotted quite a few! I love these little guys, they... Continue Reading →

Port 9 bay night dive

Since I've been working in the bay of Port 9 in Korcula, I have amassed a ton of dives in the bay, whilst conducting try dives. An opportunity for the non diver to get in the water and have the experience of diving under the waves! Most of the time we see something worthwhile, an... Continue Reading →

My first day as a dive guide

As the title suggests, I've just started working as a dive guide and so far it's been pretty full on! On day one I completed three dives, the first of which I led, a thirty metre wall, with an anchor at the base! We traversed this seeing, spinney lobster, confirm eels, a couple of small...

Diving Tarifa

It has been a while since I last took a trip below the sea, and from a friends recommendation we decided that a trip to Tarifa was needed and whilst there we would get some diving in! As soon as we arrived in the area I liked it, and that says a lot, as although... Continue Reading →

Croatia- Scuba diving

This was the second dive of the day, and I've only done a separate post due to the amount of photos in the previous post, and also to set the dives apart. On this dive we descended onto a rockery with small reefs and then made our way to the wall. We followed this, slowly... Continue Reading →

Valentine Tanks, Dorset

After a quick dive under the pier we jumped onto Swanage Divers boat and took a boat ride out past Old Harrys Rocks and over the Valentine Tanks. These 2 tanks have been on my wish list for a while and it felt good to finally be diving them, and I enjoyed them so much... Continue Reading →

The UB74 Submarine

So today was a double submarine day, diving both the UB74 and the M2. This dive is the deepest that I have done to date so for most of the dive it was in the back of my mind that diving is starting to get a little serious. That said, it was at the back... Continue Reading →

A Days Diving at Chesil, Dorset

Diving is an expensive sport, that is a truth, learning is expensive, the kit is expensive, once you have the kit the new shiny bits of better kit are expensive, boats are expensive and so on and so on... However you can have a fantastic days diving for less than you think! So I met... Continue Reading →

Holland 5 Submarine, Eastbourne

I was lucky enough in June to have the opportunity to dive the Holland 5 submarine, a protected wreck site with the Nautical Archeological Society. Sometimes when an opportunity like this pops up, irrelevant of cost it is worth it. I went by myself, without a known buddy, so had to pay for fuel etc.,... Continue Reading →
