SPECIALIST SEAL DIVING @ THE FARNE ISLANDS

If you are interested in join a hard boat for specialist seal diving on any day between 5th & 7th January please e-mail me asap: bburville@hotmail.com

These are shallow (<25m) dives with much of the time spent in <10m! Due to the weather conditions divers will need drysuits.

The aim of these dives is to get close interaction with grey seals there and divers should be relaxed in the water.

All divers will be asked to sign a disclaimer to ensure they understand that:
1. No dives deeper that 25m max
2. No stage deco dives
3. No feeding the wildlife (seals or fish)
4. There is a small risk of being bitten by seals.

Divers should follow some simple rules.
Gloves are advised. Please note these are v gentle animals and in years of diving with them I have only been bitten once, which was more of a playful nip than a bite and was my fault as I was not wearing gloves at the time!

The first days diving will be Thursday 5th Jan. All dives will be weather dependant at this time of year and the final decision will be 2 days before.

Water temp last Tuesday was 9 C. Viz was about 4m down to 15m then 7-8m below 15m depth.

This is a very good time of year for seal diving , the pups born in Nov have taken to the water and with patience encounters can be excelllent.

I make no money from these trips. All money to the skipper. Costs are 25 per diver per day including at least 2 dives.

Best regards, Ben. bburville@hotmail.com
