Scuba Diving

I would like to go Scuba diving when staying in Shetland July 2014. Apart from MV Valyrie ( whoa are doing a deep diving speciality week that week) are there any other boats operating out of Lerwick area.

Sheila, are you looking at just one dive or several?

Are you going to bring your own kit or hire one here?

divemagazine.co.uk/travel/diving-destination…

This is a little out of date but may give some new links http://www.mvhalton.co.uk/shet/links.html

You could ask here too, they should know if anyone does

scotsac.com/html/…ssac-links-dive-boats.html

This only shows 2000 prices but it could start a search

There is this too but they are hard to get hold of

scuba diving club here in Shetland - Zetland Sub-Aqua Club. Best to contact the diving officer Duncan on 01950 460511

or this

or this

I go with a company called Deep Blue in the Indian Ocean tho I don't scuba, don't think it's the same one ;-)

There is a liveaboard or two http://www.aquanautscuba.co.uk/latest-news

This reply has mentioned a couple of charters at the bottom of the post which seems to be the main suggestion generally. Worth seeing if they are still trading dooyoo.co.uk/destinations-national/…

Are there no single places on the MV Valyrie? It says there are for some dates. Depends whether you want a charter or larger boat. Contacting the charters to see if they have groups. That's what happens here down south. A group from a local club will charter a boat and there are sometimes a place or two for others to go. Great way to get to meet new people.
