Spaces on Scapa Trips 2 & 9 September weeks (or fortnight trip)
We (Standard Life Dive Club)have spaces available for 1 or 2 weeks day boat diving with Hazel on the Stormdrift
Self Catering in the Orca Hotel in Stromness for the first week and B&B basis for the second week.That lets us have free run of the kitchen and dining room to cook what we want and we have access to washing machine and drying for salty undersuits etc. on the first week and get full Scottish breakfast on the second week.

Leave Edinburgh noon on Saturday 2&9 September - arrive 23:00 in Kirkwall
Leave Kirkwall 23:00 on Friday 8&15 September - arrive in Edinburgh noon Saturday 9&16 September. Or you can do your own transfer and fly or get Scrabster ferry or whatever.

Good bunch of divers - 2 to 3 dives a day, we can cater for all levels of experience. Non-diving family or friends welcome. Tours of Orkney sights can be arranged. Second week has some rebreather divers booked on and so any technical divers would probably enjoy the 9 Sep week more as we can do more deep and long dives to suit them.

25 a day for the diving - 150 for the week
25 a day for the accommodation - 150 for the week (2 Sep self catering week)
28 a day for the accommodation - 168 for the week (9 Sep B&B week)

So - 300 (2 Sep) or 318 (9 Sep) all in for dive and accommodation per person.

Ferry, return from Aberdeen (including cabin on overnight return and share of minibus ferry fare) = 99

If you want a lift in the minibus from Edinburgh return - add 100 for share of hire and diesel.
