STW Scuba Divers?
Learnt 2 years ago, only warm water for us! Just got back from live aboard in Thailand with Similan Diving Safaris,last dive was my 50th. Padi AOW and enriched air. Simon, we did a week on the boat (4 dives a day) then did a week trekking and travelling around.
My 20 quid Lidl shorty wetsuit is fine when the water is 28C 😉
Lots of divers on here judging by the advice we’ve received in previous threads.Posted 4 years agoMatt24kSubscriber

Que willy waving:
PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, IANTD Rebreather, NACD Full Cave, BSAC Adsvanced Nitrox, 5000+ dives and run a liveaboard in the Maldives.
Sounds great and it mostly is but today it is raining side ways, we have lots of painting to do during a maintenance week and there is no chance to ride my bike until May 2014 😥greymanMember
PADI AOW and Nitrox here, dived all over the shop, deepest however being Scapa at 45m.
Currently doing IANTD tech course, though don’t know what for !
Think I’ll stick to riding my bike 😉
Well, interested in the gas management skills tbh – and there’s loads of new kit required ….Posted 4 years agocr500domSubscriber
Padi Open water, just really a recreational/holiday diver, something to do on holiday rather than sit round the pool.Posted 4 years ago
I love it, but I have way too many expensive hobbies that I don’t have time for as it is 😳
Been to Sharm on the Red Sea the last couple of years and the diving available on the house reef was superb, or a short hop across to Tiran on the RIB.
Didn’t get a chance to go further afield as didn’t want to be away from the family for too long (Non Divers)
Will do my AOW next time hopefullycarlosMember
PADI AOW – Mrs Carlos bought me the OW pack for a Christmas present some yrs ago, passed, loved it and been diving in Wales, English Quarries, Irish Sea, Greece, Mexico, Cuba, Mauritius. Got around 100 or so dives under my belt, got to a point that it was interfering in riding – choice was ride or dive cos I didn’t’ have time to do both. Needless to say riding won. Sold all my gear bar the dive wrist computer, knife, mask, fins, snorkel and booties. Still dive but only in warmer water when on holiday and still love it.Posted 4 years agoDavidBSubscriber
If any UK shore divers want a gentle ease back into it then let me know. We have a place in Brixham and I used to shore dive off the Breakwater quite a lot. The viz is usually pretty good and there’s a fair bit of life but main thing is it is dead safe. I’ve got all my kit down there now and will be looking to get back in in 2014Posted 4 years agoedhornbySubscriber
@marin with Bob on the Gaelic Rose, a good few years ago now… we did the dive which has one wreck on the drop down with the tug underneath it, that was a cracking dive, including the rock that holed it that had the most amazing sealife on.
Did Scapa as well, that was great. saw a seagull at 15m chasing fish 🙂Posted 4 years agobudgierider67Subscriber
I dived Scapa a couple of years ago & am going back again next year. Drove up from Birmingham with twinset & gear in the boot & my bike on the roof so I could ride Golspie, Fort William & the Lake District on the way home. That’s how you plan a road trip!Posted 4 years ago
Best diving has been the Normandy wrecks, Cocos Island and Julian Rocks for the shark action and Bonaire for the reefs. Regularly do Red Sea liveaboards though. Can’t beat them for value & a chilled out week.
