If you’re interested in any of these, then please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org). Also, please feel free to suggest your own – all we need are the proposed dates, location, format (shore, boat or both) and minimum diver grade. Some other possible ideas are:
- Isle of Skye – RobM has outline plans for a charter boat and accommodation
