We are pleased to announce our trips schedule for 2023. We have again been able to find a new destination to take you to as well as revisiting all of our old favourites and providing a mix of overnight and day trips. As last year, members have a priority booking window and receive the best prices for all our trips.
There have been several price increases this year. This is a direct reflection of the increased costs the skippers are seeing which get passed on to us and then to the divers. The club makes no money from operating trips, we run them purely to cover costs and get us all out diving.
We kick off the year with our first overseas trip since 2019, our fully booked trip to the Red Sea in March.
For day trips, we will be heading to St Abbs to visit our local world-class dive sites and back to the Farne Islands in October to visit the seals. As in previous years, we return again to the Clyde, this year departing from their home port of Dunoon in a quest for better weather and sea conditions!
Our new day trip destination this year is across the Forth and over to Anstruther to dive from the brand-new Mako II dive boat.
Club-favourite Lochaline is back on the calendar this year, with just a single 3 night trip. That’s to make way for another season highlight in our trip to Scapa Flow, where we’ve secured a week on a liveaboard to fully explore the famous German Fleet wrecks.
We’ll continue to offer fun diving along with our training courses at Loch Long – perfect for practicing or simply keeping up those skills.
All our trips are priced for certified drysuit divers to execute their dives in a buddy pair – following the directions of the skipper and launching a dSMB when necessary. If that’s not yet where you’re at, we can provide a guide at extra cost.
Our terms and conditions for all bookings are available here.
