Poole 25 August 2018
Poole is a great favourite among UK divers and its very easy to see why. Poole bay provides a wonderfully safe anchorage, with sheltered scenic drift dives like, Poole Rocks. This area of fossilised forest, pays host to a diversity of marine life, and offers fabulous photography opportunities at 5-15m depth. Heading West we follow the Jurassic coast, pass Old Harry Rocks, and into Swanage Bay. Here you can enjoy long slow drifts with an abundance of rays and cuttlefish. You might even spot some Sea Horses! Further along the coast, our dive focuses on scallops, lobsters and brown crabs.
The four dives of the weekend will be featuring shallow wrecks such as the Valentine tanks or the Fleur de Lys which are both around 15m as well as a reef dive and a drift dive.
As the dives involve some drift diving and some foraging for lunch we recommend that they have some experience of UK diving for this trip.
The trip price includes BBQ styled lunch on board and the crew are also happy to cook fresh fish and scallops, that are collected during the day. This trip always has rave reviews.
We are trying to organise a visit to the RNLI boathouse for the Saturday afternoon after the diving as it is always interesting to see how these guys operate and how they can help in an emergency.

LSD will assist with a hire van to get dive kit to the dives sites. The van hire has been included in the trip price but fuel will be split evenly between all participants on the weekend.
Accommodation for this trip has been booked at the Thistle Hotel Poole which is right next to the marina which also offers ample car parking (£6). Breakfast is not included in the rate as this gives the flexibility to go and grab something somewhere else if you want to.
