Wreck Hunting Pembrokeshire…

Today a small group of friends headed out on Scavenger Dive Boat to search for an elusive wreck! We got the slack forecast spot on, dropped a shot on the mark and waited for the slack to arrive. Within 20mins it was slack and in we went. Diving down to nearly 40mtr, the current wasContinue reading “Wreck Hunting Pembrokeshire…”

Diving the LCg116 and the Caroline Wrecks

Today we headed out to the war grave wreck, LCG116. We arrived just before slacks and shotted the wreck. We dived 35mtrs to the seabed and the shot was across a very large anchor.

Diving in the Skomer Marine Conservation Zone

Today started off looking pants! The forecast was force 4, the swell was upto 3mtrs around St Ann’s Head, but not breaking, so we thought we’d give it a look. It was a lumpy trip out to Skomer especially around St Ann’s, and also into Jack Sound, but overall it wasn’t too bad a tripContinue reading “Diving in the Skomer Marine Conservation Zone”

Wet Day on Scavenger Dive Boat

What a miserable day we’ve had down here, everything crawled to a snails pace as the heavens opened.
