About the event
Diving with the Seals of the Farne Islands. Friday 20th – Sunday 22nd September 2019. Minimum qualification – Junior Open water with 20 SPACES!
If you want to dive with seals then this is the best there is, with a colony of 1500 seals around the Farne Islands and September is regarded as the best month to visit as the young seals born the year before are at their most playful. We are going to use Sovereign Diving who have a Catamaran coded for 20 divers with dry area and lift.
Plan is to depart Swansea PM Thursday 19th with all kit in the Bay Divers van, car & fuel sharing and travel to Seahouses (Half way between Newcastle and the Scottish border). Two dives a day planned for Friday 20th and Saturday 21st with one morning dive planned for Sunday 22nd before we travel back on the Sunday afternoon.
Cost - £115. If single tanking then arrive with two filled cylinders (can rent these filled for £20 each for the whole weekend), subsequent fills, included rented cylinders will be at a rate of £4 per fill locally.
Accommodation B&B, £40 per person, per night.
Will need £40 to secure your space with full balance to be paid SIX weeks before departure. If you pay your deposit and you need to cancel for any reason, as long as it’s more than six weeks before we depart, I’ll make sure you get back. Currently FULL, reserve list below.
