The far North is truly one of the hidden gems of the British diving scene. The clear cold northern waters can offer breathtaking clarity for visiting divers and underwater photographers.
The East coast boasts a wealth of broken shipwrecks from the age of steam, suitable for all levels of underwater adventurer. The rocky cliffs that host spectacular seabird colonies, are also home to shallow caverns and gullies where inquisitive seals often join you in your exploration.
