Dive Trip Reports

Dive Report Plymouth – September 2019

Had a great days diving from our rib. First was a dive on the Rosehill a collier that was torpedoed in WW1, viz was great with lots of life around the boilers and engine. Didn’t make it to the gun on the stern so will have come back to dive it again soon.

Second dive was on the Mew Stone Ledges, a series of gullies on the western side of the Mew Stone, one of the highlights was the cuttlefish followed us around for most of the dive.

We finished off with a bit of boat handling practice in the Plymouth Sound. Big thanks to poor old Chris who organized the trip, skippered the boat but couldn’t...

Porthkerris – August 2019

Over the bank holiday weekend 13 divers, 1 non diver, 2 kids and a dog descended on Porthkerris for a long weekend of Rib and shore diving.

Day 1: The weather was against us so the boat only managed to get out once but rest of us still managed to have a great shore dive swimming amongst all the gullies and rocky outcrops just a short swim from the beach

Day 2: The wind and changed direction so the boat went out 3 times. I had two great wreck dives one on the Volney and another on the Mohegan, both are heavily broken up but there was loads of life on both of them.

Day 3: With the weather sti...

CSAC Goes To Egypt

7 Divers spent a fantastic week diving in the red sea with Blue o Two. Had a great week of diving some of the best wrecks and reefs the Red Sea has to offer. We started the week diving Ras Mohammad marine park before heading North to the Thistlegorm wreck. The Thistlegorm is one of the top wreck diving locations in the world. The world war 2 cargo ship was carrying troop supplies. Whilst at anchorage the wreck was found by Axis bombers which scored a hit on the ship. The bomb exploded near the artillery store which caused a chain reaction with the force of the explosion and light seen from man...

CSAC Goes to Orkney (and almost Shetland) 2018

Members of CSAC have just returned from their bi-annual pilgrimage to Orkney. They went up with plans to dive the German High Seas Fleet that was scuttled in Scapa Flow nearly one hundred years ago as well as exploring the many wrecks and reefs around the Isles. There were also plans to push on up to Shetland but the sea refused to comply.

Sea swell notwithstanding, we enjoyed fantastic weather, even breaking out the shorts and slapping on the sunscreen on a couple of occasions! There were also chances to take in the local surroundings when we moored up on the various islands that make up Orkn...

CSAC goes to the Eddystone Lighthouse!

After an excellent start to the season with some fantastic weather we topped the diving off with a trip out to the Eddystone reef and lighthouse. The weekend was a mixture of SCUBA diving training and fun diving. Some members travelled from Brsitol for the SCUBA diving whilst the rest camped in Plymouth. The reef itself is 10 nautical miles offshore which is a long way out. The badger the new club diving RIB made the journey without missing a beat in just over 30 minutes! The visibility was fantastic and every rock face was covered in Jewel anemones and soft corals. After the dive ee flew back...
