Just an update on the trips for qualified divers planned for 2018 (ie not training trips which will be publicised separately)
April Red sea live aboard. Trip Manager Rob Mason. The trip is all booked up now and is closed to any other divers
May 19-26 Gran Canaria trip. Trip Manager Paul Richardson. The trip is all booked up.
June 9-10 Eyemouth. Trip Manager Rob Mason. Trip includes accommodation and two days boat diving for £160 (plus food). There are 12 places on the boat and so far we have 7 names. £70 deposit if you want to reserve a place. Rob is opening it up to Wombwell branch members.
July 21-22 Farnes. Trip Manager Iona Edwards. Sort your own accommodation. We have booked a RIB for £980, so £82 each provided we have 12 divers on board. I have taken 12 deposits. We have got at least 15 people interested but the skipper has not offered us an attractive deal to go out again part full. Instead we are looking to book 6 or more places on a Billy Shiels boat our of the harbour, which will cost £90 per diver, but should come with a lift. Ann will manage the hard boat, with Iona on the RIB.
So there are still places available on this trip. This is an excellent trip for newly qualified ocean divers. Deposit £40
September 13-17 Isle of Man. Trip Manager Suzey Robinson. £320 for accommodation and 4 days boat diving (plus food and ferry). We did the trip last year, and there are a load of dive sites we did not see. All qualification levels. £200 deposit. So far I have only got 2 names.
September 28 – October 1 Lochaline/Mull. Trip Manager Rob Mason. This trip is being limited to Sports Diver minimum. Boat hire is £820 split between up to 12 divers, and accommodation £25pppn. There is usually a shore dive on the way up, plus 2 days boat diving. 3 names so far. £70 deposit.
October 1-8. Egypt shore/day boat diving, Marsa Alam. Trip Manager Trevor Bailey. 5-6 days shore and optional boat diving, flights, half board accommodation. 5 people have booked on the trip, £1090 sharing, £1170 single. Talk to me if you are interested, to get an up-to date quote.
Plus of course, you can organise a trip to somewhere you want to go.
