The Isle of May has a wide range of dive sites which suits all levels. It is home to thousands of grey seals and seabirds. Sitting near the mouth of the Firth of Forth, it is weather dependent but on a good day, it provides some stunning diving. The rocky reefs support kelp forests – tall enough for divers (and seals!) to swim through, rich marine life and great visibility. Wolf fish, octopus and all sorts of spectacular corals and anemones all waiting to be seen. There are numerous open caves and swim-throughs as well as shallow wrecks. There are also some beautiful top side scenery to take in while you are there.

LOCHALINE, SOUND OF MULL

Price: £437 (£392 if member)

27 – 30th May

The Sound of Mull is probably only second to Scapa Flow as the most well known Scottish dive sites. The Sound is famous for the clarity of its water and the abundance of marine life. There is a range  of scenic, wreck and drift diving to cater for a wide range of interests – and sometimes you get all of that in one dive.  Dolphins and porpoises are common sightings. Did we mention that there are basking sharks around in the summer too? They are the second largest living fish in the world! Each day typically revolves around having the most amazing dives, interspersed by a spot of fishing off the boat during surface intervals and the opportunity for you to hand dive for king scallops – seafood doesn’t come fresher than this. For more info www.deepbluescuba.co.uk/whats-included-uk-trips

FARNE ISLANDS

Diving in the Farne Islands is an assault on the senses with a variety of wreck and scenic dives on offer. It boasts one of the largest grey seal colonies in England – if you are looking for encounters with seals this is it. Be warned though – the seal pups come out to play in late September and October. They are very inquisitive and often come in to take a close look and even nibble on your fins!
