Trip Information

Does a unique Diving trip in Scapa Flow while gaining further diving certifications appeal to your sense of adventure?


Cardiff Scuba is offering a unique dive experience in the Orkney Isles at Scapa Flow from 10th - 15th May 2020.
This offer is targeted at those divers who wish to broaden their experience of diving while at the same time expanding their knowledge in the sport.
We are offering a 3 course package which includes:
  • Enriched Air Certification
  • Deep Diver Certification
  • Wreck Diver Certification
These courses will be offered through the training agency 'Scuba Divers International' (SDI) with our experienced Instructional and support staff.
The general plan will be to complete all of the theory components of the courses at our / your home-base, either through classroom presentations or through e-learning and then to undertake the practical diving components from a liveaboard in Scapa Flow.
It must be emphasised that there is no crossover of courses while taking any of the dives. Each dive will focus only on the components of the individual course that you are on. Because of the location this will mean that you are completing all of the courses while diving the famous World War 1 wrecks of Scapa Flow.
The aim would be to complete all three courses over the first 3 days of the trip, thereby leaving a further 3 days for 'open' diving.
To facilitate this proposal we will use the services of Orkney & Shetland Charters on either the MV Valkyrie or the MV Vallhala. We will be looked after by the owners of the Charter - Helen & Hazel who have the most amazing reputation for looking after their guests and their food reputation is second to none.
If this type of trip appeals to you then please contact us, either directly or through e-mail and we will send you details of the cost and planned programme.
Costs to be considered will be:
  1. Course costs - These will be offered as a package deal
  2. Boat charter liveaboard cost - reduced for this trip
  3. Food cost - full or half board available
  4. Travel to Scapa - to include the Ferry - Car sharing beneficial
  5. Air fills are included in the price
  6. Nitrox is not included in the price and has to be paid for at the end of the diving week direct to the boat charter


The costs for the trip and courses will be available to those who express an interest. Please come back to us as soon as possible as places are limited.

As an added bonus, we will offer the Dry Suit course for the cost of the 'manual and certification only' to any customer who does not already have their Dry Suit Certification. This must be competed prior tp the trip.

Kit hire at reduced rates will be available if required.
