 Shetland Liveaboard August 2018

Following our very successful trip to Scapa Flow in April on the MV Valkyrie owned and operated by Hazel and Helen with their crew of Orkney & Shetland Dive Charters, we have booked with them again for the week of the 11th August 2018.

In addition, for the same week we have also booked Orkney & Shetlands new liveaboard, the  MV Valhalla.

The exciting news is that both these liveaboards will take us to dives in the Shetland Isles (not Scapa Flow) and will give us space for 24 divers!!!!!

The Shetlands are an amazing place to dive, with wrecks for all levels of experience. The initial plan is to have one boat for experienced divers  to take deeper dives and the other boat will house the less experienced divers and offer dives of suitable depths.

For this trip ALL divers must be at least Advanced Openwater (or equivalent), with Deep, Wreck and Dry Suit certification. Enriched Air certification would also be advantageous. We need divers to have a minimum of 50 verifiable dives in UK waters. You must also be proficient in the deployment of an SMB.

Experienced technical divers on OC or CCR are very welcome.

 We already have a number of interested divers and we are taking names immediately to assess the response to the trip.

Prices have not yet been confirmed but the general plan will be to drive to Aberdeen, take the overnight Ferry to Lerwick, be met at the Ferry by the Dive Charter and have an week of amazing diving. 

Travel to Aberdeen can be organised as a group or individuals can make their own arrangements.

When we have more confirmed prices, we will let everyone know. 

Please don't miss this opportunity, let us know you are interested and we can add you to our list and keep you informed so that you can make a final decision to commit to a place. 

For any further initial information, call Rob or Simon on 029 2061 5161
