Humpbacks and Fin Whales feeding frenzy

Another great forecast to go whale watching this Friday, Saturday or Sunday (22-24 Nov). Subject to minimum numbers but great sightings of fins, humpbacks and loads and loads of dolphins in our area over the last couple of days. When you see this type of bird activity it's a great indicator that the waters are teeming with fish and you might spot the whales lunge-feeding.

Humpback and Fin Whales Return

Sightings in the last couple of days confirm that the humpbacks and fin whales are back in the same area where we spotted them last year.  We'll head out tomorrow afternoon at 1pm  (spaces available on the boat - call to book) and we'll keep you posted.  Hopefully the weather will be favourable for the next few weeks.  Certainly tomorrow is looking great with sunshine and wave height of only 1 mtr.

Dive the U260 & Kowloon Bridge on 28/29 Sept

With a great weather forecast ahead of us (high pressure building so very light winds all week) the viz and surface conditions should be excellent for more dives on these two famous wrecks.  Of course you need to be suitably qualified but we do have a few places left.  Book your space now !

The Kowloon Bridge propeller is huge (see the person walking in front of the scaffolding) but unfortunately this part of the wreck has been pushed "underground", the only part visible is the top section of the rudder.  She also carried a spare prop and we believe an attempt was made to lift this when the Kowloon was sinking but got "lost" and has never been seen since.

Fastnet Rock

We'll be diving the Fastnet Lighthouse this Friday with a superb forecast of very light winds and great viz.  Some spaces still available (unfortunately Saturday is booked up for the Sub but we'll be doing that again on 28/29 Sept with some availability for those suitably dived up).
The Fastnet Lighthouse is built on the larger of two pinnacles of hard clay shale with veins of quartz rising to a height of 30 m above low water mark, surrounded by deep water, beautiful gullies, walls covered in colourful marine life and plenty of fish too.

Diving the U260 - Saturday 7 Sept

The submarine on a low water slack at 36 to 42 mtrs is a fantastic dive, particularly with the great viz and weather conditions that are set to continue.  Book your space(s) by calling 087-7961456 as numbers are limited.
