The list below has all the dives currently being planned.
No doubt a lot of you will be getting incredibly cheesed off with the inclement/unreliable weather which is only likely to get worse as the weeks progress which as per usual will restrict diving to an absolute minimum, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Live aboard/Blue 02/Deep South “Blue Horizon”
The cost including BSAC discount of 5% would be £847.00 + flight. As a guide price I have just booked a flight to Marsa Alam for £263.00 return plus the usual baggage add-ons etc.
price includes: –
- 7-Nights full board accommodation in Classic Cabin (based on double occupancy)
- 6 Days of diving with up to 4 dives per day
- Transfers between local airport and live aboard on days of embarkation and disembarkation
- Marine Park & Port Fees
- Environmental Tax
- Water/coffee/tea/soft drinks
- 12 Litre cylinder with air fills
The itinerary focuses on the reefs of St John’s, Fury Shoal and the Elphinstone, along with the reefs of The Wadi Gama area.
I know for myself it will be a chance to brush up on open circuit diving skills in lovely warm clear water, with a minimum of diving equipment, but not forgetting of course Speedo’s and Shades etc …..

I am running another Club trip to the Isle of Scillies next year. We already have 8 divers booked on and possibly have two diver spaces available.
Please check the dive report for 2019 trip for the dive sites we do. We are absolutely delighted to be diving with Dave McBride again on his hardboat Tiburon. We stay in a brilliant four bedroom fully furnished and fully equipped house which sleeps 8 divers. If I fill the last two spaces I will need to find another place to sleep them very soon, which will be close by. Our main accommodation is called Trevean and is right in the town centre of St Mary’s Island which is very convenient to the pubs, restaurants, shops and more importantly very close to the harbour where we board Tiburon.
The Isle of Scillies is such a beautiful place to be, not only for the diving but also to visit all the islands – each one is very different, also to do some kayaking, cycling, walks or just sit on one of the quiet beaches and relax after an amazing day of diving.
This trip will use Mevaghdiving.com and their boat the Laura Dean to dive wrecks in the depth range 70-90m off Malin Head, Co Donegal.
For all those interested I will be running a trip to Cornwall July/August 2020, and will post further details as and when they become available.
