Eyemouth and St Abbs Weekend
Hard Boat Diving, Berwickshire
Eyemouth is a town in Berwickshire on the east coast just over the Scottish border—St Abbs is a small fishing village north of Eyemouth. The local coastline is unspoilt with a great wealth of animal, bird and plant life. The beautiful coastline offers miles of walks and local sites of interest including Lindisfarne. The sea is clear with a rich variety of animals and plants of Arctic and Atlantic origins. The generally good water clarity and spectacular underwater scenery contribute to some of the best diving in Britain and the local in-shore waters have been a voluntary marine reserve since 1984, a benefit to all.
Diving will take place from a hard boat which goes out of Eyemouth, very close to your accommodation, your equipment and cylinders will be transported for you to the boat. On Saturday you will complete your dives either in the morning or afternoon leaving the rest of the day to explore. On Sunday all divers will dive in the morning enabling an early start to get back home if desired. This area is exposed to bad weather and sometimes the diving has to be cancelled – if we do lose any diving the walks and scenery in the area are fantastic.
You will enjoy 2 days hard boat diving with 2 dives per day.
You will require 2 tanks for the trip. A dive computer, SMB and reel are mandatory for each diver. Equipment can be hired from New Horizons. This is an ideal dive trip for Open Water divers and above and is the ideal opportunity to gain UK diving experience.
Accommodation: To assist our divers this package includes 2 nights accommodation at The Home Arms in Eyemouth. They offer good en-suite twin or family rooms, convenient for the diving and pubs allowing the group to be together.
