A diving weekend based at the Isle of Whithorn on the Galloway coast. Travel up and launch RIB on Friday 5th August, Two dives/day on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th. Travel home Monday 8th

Boat/Diving

The diving will be from Lunesdale Diver, there is usually some cross-over with NSSAC and occasionally extra spaces available. The intention, weather permitting is to dive two wrecks in the 45m range the “ADC527” and the “Inkosi”, with a shallower inshore scenic as a second dive.

This trip is aimed at Dive Leaders as the depths aimed for are reasonably deep, there is the potential for Sports Divers to join for the second dive, however those suitably depth competent have first dibs! There are potentially two spare berths in the accommodation for any extras who could join the NSAC boat if the demand is there.

Newton Stewart SAC have a compressor at the Isle which is reasonably priced

Accommodation

We’ll be staying at Burrow Head holiday village where they have static caravans and prefab lodges.

Food, drinks etc.

The intention would be for communal cooking, as the local pub has gone very “haute cuisine” in recent times, potentially with a takeaway on the Saturday night if options are available.
