Diving Vobster Quay 5th March

Another excellent day of diving at Vobster Quay.
It was a bright sunny day with intermottent showers and some great underwater visibility averaging 6-10 metres.
Visited many of the underwater attractions including the sections of the plane, the crushing works and the tunnel.
Tec 45 dives 3& 4 completed in a very satisfactory manner by Tony.

All our pleasure divers diving Vobster for the 1st time said it was an excellent venue and wanted to return again for some more fun dives.

TecRec 40 Course at Vobster Quay

Dive Machine went to Vobster Quay today to complete student Tec 40 dives 3 & 4.
It was a breezy chilling air temperature of 1 degree but the water was a mild 5-6 degree’s definitely more comfortable in the water.
Our dives took us down into the “pit” and around the boat, plane, crushing works and the tunnel.

Visibility was around 6-10 metres. All dives were succesfuly completed despite a dislocated shoulder which was adequately manipulated on the surface to be able to complete dive 4.

Pleasure divers came along to join in the fun for the day. This is a great dive site for Advanced open water and other training dives as well as just being able to get in the water and have a tour of the many attractions that Vobster Quay has to offer.
