Scenic Dives

Weymouth & Portland is situated in the centre of Dorset’s Jurassic coastline with an abundance of reef and ledge dives such as Pulpit rock, Durdle door, Stennis ledges and Lulworth banks which are all homes to an amazing verity of marine life. We’ve also got some of the countrys classic drift dives round the area of Portland Bill and are very often the choice of second dives. Life thrives in these strong tidal conditions and the area offers a number of good drift dives, some will fly you through dramatic seabed locations lined with deadmans fingers and plumrose anenomies. Look more closely amongst this marine growth and you will often find unusual nudibranchs, octopus, as well as gorgeously coloured anemones that adorn these gullies.

Wreck Dives

The English Channel is the busiest shipping Channel in the world and with the help of two world wars and ports that have sailed vessels since wood could float it is now channel the most wreck-infested stretches of water in the world. There are more wrecks per square mile in the English Channel than anywhere else in the world. Skin deep diving over the last 30 years has visited over 160 new wreck sites with in its day range, some of the most well known wrecks in the area and especially popular with customers are the wrecks of the Salsette, Kyarra,M2, Avalanche, and the Aeolian Sky.

The Boat or Facilities
