The MV Valkyrie is a 22m live aboard specialising in comfortable diving holidays in Scapa Flow, Orkney and Shetland. We offer an unparalleled level of service with three crew rather than the standard two, and the only live aboard in Scapa Flow...more
Really enjoyed my charter with the Valkyrie. Food was good, bunks were cozy as one would expect on a boat but clean and the heater worked. Ran into a few issues during my time but Helen/Hazel and the crew knew exactly what to do to...More
My partner and I have been using the Valkyrie for dive trips for 3 years now, visiting Scapa Flow, the Orkney Northern Isles and Shetland.

The Valhalla is the new sister ship to the Valkyrie and it is as good as the many great reviews of the Valkyrie. We got super assistance with knowledgeable briefings by the skipper and very helpful prepping for going n-water and getting back on board....More

Gear up, walk to the edge and dive. What could be easier? Great crew with a really helpful attitude. Ample accommodation with enough storage space. We were lucky enough to have some orcas come into the bay just below the dock at Lerwick, a wonderful...More
