London International Dive Show: 14-15 February 2015
LIDS is nearly here! We like to think of LIDS as the start of the dive season in the UK and we are very excited to be going again. For those of you who have not been there before it is a great way to see what is out there in the world of Diving. There will be a range of seminars to attend, and we are going to be offering HUGE discounts on all courses booked at the show. It is a must in the calendar for all divers!
Come and say hello at stand 416 by the try dive pool which we are running for the third year now. Feel free to bring along as many friends and family as you like for a free scuba diving taster.
Forget soppy dates and chocolates this Valentines Weekend– nothing says ‘I Love You’ more than a day out at LIDS!
London School of Diving is also very proud to have been awarded, for the seventh year running, the Career Development Centre rating. This is the highest possible rating in the PADI system for dive centres.
Get Wrecked Egypt: 12-19 June 2015
This is the ultimate trip for Wreck lovers everywhere – guided by the legendary Red Sea Wreck Hunter and researcher Peter Collins, this epic and unique liveaboard journey takes in greats such as the mysterious SS Thistlegorm and the beautiful SS Carnatic with her 150 years of Coral Growth as well as the huge SS Scalaria and many other gems along the way.
Starting in Hurghada before heading up Northern Suez and then back South you will have the opportunity to dive 15 wrecks over 6 diving days including unique night dives and 1 complete day of diving as much as you like on the relatively recently discovered ‘New Thistlegorm’ SS Turkia where there are so many fish they blot out the sun! With sites ranging in depth from 10 – 40 metres this trip has something for all levels of diver.
The last day is spent on land at the fabulous Roots Red Sea resort – the perfect place to rest up and relax and get ready for the flight home.

Club LSD 2015 Makeover
As you may have noticed, Club LSD has had a major makeover for 2015 and we are very excited about this year’s calendar of events, holidays, seminars and of course the monthly club nights at The Pilot.
Overseas trips include Narvik which is back by popular demand and is already filling up, as well as a trip to the fantastic ROOTS Red Sea Resort towards the end of the year. Here in the UK there are favourites such as Lundy, Isle of White and Eastbourne with Selsea and Portland for the less experienced members.
Club memberships will shortly be up for renewal on the 1 March and because we love you all so much, we have frozen the price at £80 for the year. To make the application process as simple as possible, you can now renew your membership and book your place on trips via PayPal through the Club LSD page on the website.
To kick off the 2015 Club season we’ll be celebrating at The Pilot on 5th March from 7pm. This is a great chance for old, new and potential Club members to meet and mingle over a few beers and a big celebratory cake!
If you haven’t already, head over and take a look around the revamped Club webpages, here you can also check out the calendar for upcoming events: Club LSD 2015
