Trip Information

As mentioned above, the cost of the week will be £350. This will include all of the following :

  • Return transport to the Orkneys. This will be in a shared minibus. Insurance, petrol, hire etc. all included.
  • 6 day of diving (two dives per day)
  • Accommodation. The boat we are using for the week is the MV Halton. The Halton is capable of sleeping up to 12 in cosy, but very comfortable bunks!
  • Cost of return ferry between Scrabster (Northern Scotland) and Stromness (the Orkneys)

The diving ranges in depth from 18-45 metres. The visibility can be very varied, and certain dives are sometimes prone to strong currents. Anyone wishing to join the trip will need to be at least an Advanvced Open Water Diver with proof of experience of UK diving.

While we will be staying on the boat, it will moor up in Stromness Harbour every night. This means that you are able to head out to a local pub/restaurant in the evening for food. There is also the option of everyone buying food collectively to be cooked on the boat. Obviously this will be decieded on arrival.

Please note that the following is NOT included in the cost :

  • Hire of ANY kit. All equipment must be taken with you. We are able to hire out equipment  at reduced rates. Please get intouch for more details. 
  • Food
  • Dive Insurance

We will be offering a number of different speciality courses at reduced rates during the week. These will include Enriched Air (Nitrox) @ £75, Deep Diver Speciality @ £95 and Wreck Diver (obviously!!) for £105. Speak to either Ian or Rob at the shop or see the relevant links on this website for more details.

If you would like to book your self a place on this trip then please be in touch as soon as possible. Spaces are very limited and this always proves to be a popular week of diving. To confirm any booking we will ask for a deposit of 50% of the full price i.e £175.
