Well im off to Stoney and need a buddy. Can you make it up there? I have a problem with my local centre tending to like there week dives which Ican never do because of work....

Im 26 and OW. Think you will like Stoney, lots to do at 10 mtrs through to 30, but with me you wont be going that deep! we both need more experience first! I got a good 5 dives in last trip, lots to do.

If Stoney poss for you, Bank Hol Monday im up there, might be another 1 or so also.

tomuk0[AT] replate [AT] with @ obviously!

Stoney is 100 miles for you.

All the Best

Hi Ally. I am a recently qualified OW with a dozen or so dives in my log. My local dive club meet up quite regularly. Am based near heathrow and dive at Wraysbury quite a bit. Also arrange dives all over the south and as far up as Stoney and Capernwray. We are also quite keen on the south coast. Get in touch you are welcome to join us.

Hi new person!
I know it can be difficult creating opportunities to dive, but the south coast is accessible and there are plenty of boats down there.
I'm Leo and I'm a DiveMaster based in London, although I havent dived much in the UK either. Im not a dive bore and have a sense of humour! so if you'df like to get in touch feel We can swap photos if you like!

Hi ALly, I'm a trainee divemaster from Basingstoke and I believe was part of the club that you speak of that has closed down. The good news is, the school is still very active and the 'club', such as it is, still exists.... the shop sadly though has very much closed. As for diving opportunities I can usually be found trying to organise something and am currently trying to get some people together to go to Vobster this weekend. It's a shame this is not a secure site as I am loathe to leave my email (I get enough spam as it is!) so here is the plan, if you send an email to the 'info' address on the website (the Homepage is still there) and ask Robin to forward it to me then we can exchange email and, hopefully, get some diving sorted out.

Hi Ally,

Hopefully you've found what you were looking for and are improving your skills. Diving is a constant search for buddies don't you think?
I'm based in London looking for a buddy for a trip to the Red Sea preferably in November. Iím an easy going, positive diver with 30 dives - some of them to 30 m and a night dive,

Take care,
