Dive Trip – Isle of Skye – 7th-14th Sept 2024

Waves Shape

Greetings Divers! Here is a fabulous opportunity to dive the Isle of Skye in 2024 – one of the top locations in Scotland to visit, famous for its breath-taking scenery and landscapes. The Island has a rich history that includes Dinosaur Fossils, Clan Warfare, and the infamous Jacobite Rebellion. The Isle of Skye is also a great destination for wildlife watching. Diving will be typical Scottish west coast – a mix of wrecks, reefs, walls, pinnacles and caves – including the legendary Flame shell beds of Loch Carron and the signature wreck HMS Port Napier.

  • Arriving Saturday 7th Sept, we have 6 days diving from Sunday to Friday, departing on Saturday 14th September.
  • We will be based in capital of Skye, Portree with www.skyeboatcharters.com/ – a new venture from our old friend Robin Smart, previous owner of our beloved Movern Dive Lodge.
  • Robin’s boat has a toilet, dry-side, gally, diver lift and compressor. Charter cost is £432 each based on 10 divers.
  • The accommodation will be in Portree at Robin’s 5 twin-bedded room guest house on a B&B basis, with optional packed lunch and evening meals if required. Accommodation cost is £350 each. You may arrange your own accommodation in Portree if desired.
  • Total package price is £782 each (excluding travel, airfills and food).

Ropes-off will be from various harbours around Skye, mainly Portree but also from Uig harbour and Loch Harport. This will give us opportunities to access a greater variety of dive sites in most weather conditions.

Due to the expected depths and conditions, the minimum diver grade will be Sports diver. Experienced Advanced Ocean Divers with depth progression may be considered – please seek advice from RobM.

There are 10 spaces up for grabs. Anyone interested should email the Trip Manager, Lee Saunders, at lee-saunders@outlook.com. To secure your place, let Lee know and pay a non-refundable deposit of £82 to the club:

Please note – this trip is run as a package and cannot be modified to cater for individual accommodation requests. Room sharing arrangements will be overseen by the Trip Manager based on the division of Male/Female participants. Whilst we will endeavour to satisfy individual requirements, the Trip Managers decision is final on room sharing to ensure maximum flexibility and minimise additional costs. Alternatively, you may arrange your own accommodation in Portree.
