Greater Manchester's premier scuba diving club


What a lovely day we had, even the weather was kind. Indeed there were eight die hards braving the cool waters of this Northern pit.

First time in a dry suit for one, with Sport Diver stuff for others.

Came across three of our Skin Divers practicing CBL on the first dive, then line laying on the second, where the line need not be followed……… just the cloud of silt... perfect conditions for an exercise of that ilk…………

Brian’s first go in a dry suit went well; his Roly-Poly’s are coming along nicely.

Lanzarote - Sun Sea & dodgy dealings

Well Lanzarote, what's that like?

Following on from Nigel's comments it is ideal for an early season jaunt, some varied life but a dry suit for February is definitely recommended. Only a couple of missed dives from one or two of our longstanding members, not due to sampling too much of the local Grog though.................Perish the thought.

Manta Divers were pretty cool, friendly and easy going. They have a luxury 4.5 metre RIB which we dived from on a few occasions, only trouble was the tubes were coming away from the hull which surprisingly let quite a lot of the Briney in. On one dive, three of our Aquanuats had to leave the sinking vessel to save the remaining crew and passengers. They "rested" in the water until the craft returned from depositing some of the more valuable weight on the quayside.

The rock steady crew in Lanzarote

Thought I would add a few photos from our recent trip to the Atlantic.

For those who have not been, Lanzarote is a great early season dive destination and although we had a massive debate regarding dry suit or wet suit, I am happy to report I have no regrets at taking a dry suit.

Many thanks to Pete for organising and finding such a good base. All inclusive was the way to go! although used by some more than others!!!  Who missed dives?

Improve your skills! New BSAC course

BSAC has recently introduced a combined Automated External Defibrillation (AED) and Advanced Oxygen First Aid (AO2)  for Scuba Diving (See BSAC AED for FAQs). 

Our very own Wayne has become one of the first in the country to pass the new course and with flying colours!   He undertook the course with Blue Lagoon Diving & Leisure under the auspices of the Territorial Army.  Congratulations Wayne

The course is designed to train the general diving public (and non diving public) to recognise signs and symptoms of major Dive accidents. It covers how to provide oxygen to injured scuba divers at the highest possible concentration whilst alerting the relevant local emergency services effectively.

Whoa! Cut up that dry suit?

Is he worth it...?
