Great diving from Eastbourne is only at set dates during the year and subject to change, usually these trips are in the summer months.
Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne, has fast become one of the largest marina developments in the UK. It’s growth over the past 7 years has been enormous, it now provides visitors, whether it be by land or sea, with access to some of the finest diving on the south coast of England.

Between Beachy Head and Dungeness, there are wrecks of all shapes, depth’s and sizes, including liners, merchant ships, naval warships and submarines, all in very accessible depths, many of which are rarely dived. Probably one of the best things about diving around Eastbourne is that most of your diving is between 20-40mtrs. For the more experienced diver, there are some exceptionally good wrecks in the 40-55mtr range and for the Tri-mix diver, down to 70mtrs. Great drift dives can be done here, a favourite is “The Tower”, a lighthouse where fish life is very abundant. Evening drift dives from Eastbourne are £25, evening wreck dives are £30-35. We usually depart Eastbourne Marina around 17:30 to 18:30 depending on the currents and are subject to weather conditions. The boat is fully insured and carries all the necessary safety equipment to comply with charter boat requirements.

If you are unable to fit into any of our scheduled boat dives, the following links are dives organised by the skipper’s and need to be arranged direct with them.
