Spend a week diving the historic wrecks of Scapa Flow from the Orkney\'s largest live-aboard dive boat M.V. Invincible. Situated on the North East coast of Scotland, Scapa Flow is a large sheltered natural harbour and the resting place to seven warships of the German High Seas Fleet scuttled on the orders of Admiral Von Reuter at the end of WW1 - June 21, 1919 and later joined by numerous block ships during WWII. Scapa is the UKís premier wreck diving location and one of the Top 10 wreck diving locations in the world - a must for all metal enthusiasts!\
\
With easy access via its own gang way, Invincible is moored at the East Pier in Stromness Harbour, turn right straight after exiting NorthLink Ferry if in a car. Over 25 meters long, Invincible is licensed to carry 12 passengers and two crew, she has an enormous open dive deck with gear benches running down either side of the boat. Invincible is fully equipped to provide air & Nitrox fills on-board and between dives to 350br and also has a large diver lift, capable of lifting two divers out of the water at the same time. There is a covered deck area at the bow which is ideal for drying suits and sorting gear boxes. The bridge is full of state-of-the-art electronics and there are three oxygen kits, strategically positioned around the boat for safety.\
\
For your convenience and comfort, the Invincible has 240 volt power supply throughout, full central heating, hot & cold running water, two shower rooms with toilets. Thereís a on-board bar, thatís right - our very own pub, stocked with Orkney Ales, a range of optics, soft drinks and a large plasma TV and DVD player\
\
THE DIVING \
\
2 dives a day and in between dives we can swim with the seals or go to the Scapa museum as it is a holiday I don\'t like to keep a ridged structure so we as a group will decide what we would like to do for that day \

\
FOOD\
\
we will have breakfast as we are steaming out to the flow and after the first dive Fiona prepares all those scrumptious generously portioned Full Scottish breakfasts and after the second dive she also makes her home made soups, which is to die for. It is the best i have ever had on any dive boat and highly recommended and for the evening meal we normally eat in Stromness or Kirkwall if you have a car however Fiona does not mind the use of the galley to prepare evening meals so long as you clean up afterwards \
\
I have dived on the MV Invincible quite a few times now and Ian and Fiona are always welcoming and make you feel at home and are hight recommended \
\
The cost per person is £550 that includes 6 days @ 2 dives per day, 7 nights onboard accommodation, 3 meals (pre dive, after 1st dive and after 2nd dive), air, swimming with seals and visiting the Scapa museum, unlimited hot drinks etc\
\
kit can be hired and nitrox and 3rd dive available and additional fee\
