Fwd: Scapa Flow – 26 September – 3 October…

Dear all,

This is a reminder about this upcoming trip to dive the awesome wrecks of scapa flow! I am being chased for deposits from the skipper so I need to fill the last couple of spaces soon! I will be in the pub on Wednesday if anyone wants to discuss. After this, I’ll open the trip to other clubs…
I will send a separate email shortly to those who have recently mentioned interest!

Dear all,

As many of you know, I had a September Scapa trip in the diary. Unfortunately, due to a problem with dates, my Scapa trip has had to be moved and will now be from Hazel's boat – MV Valkyrie. Please find details of the new trip below. Any questions, please fire me an email or grab me in the pub!


For many of you Scapa Flow will need no introduction. Scapa Flow ranks as one of the world’s top diving destinations, and is a must for all wreck divers. There is a great selection of World War 1 German Wrecks to explore at top end recreational/technical depths. More details can be found here: http://www.scapaflowwrecks.com/


We will be diving from, and living on,  MV Valkyrie (http://www.mv-valkyrie.co.uk/).


To come on the trip you will need to be at least an experienced sports diver, happy doing square profile 35m dives in the U.K by the time of the trip. However, to get the very most out of the trip the ability to dive to 45m is best, as we are planning to dive the battleships (the deepest of which is 43m to the bottom). You will therefore be slightly limited on a couple of the dives we will do if you are at a sports diver level, please drop me a note or have a chat in the pub if you’re worried about this!  


Now for the details:


– Trip cost £590 including:

  • 2 dives per day (note two days of the above dates are for travel);
  • Accomodation, Air fills (nitrox available charged extra, trimix by prior arrangement) and lead weights;
  • Note that travel up to Scapa, food, beer etc will cost extra.  


We generally travel up communally in cars, with the option of flying being available for a limited number of the group. To secure your place on the trip, I will be asking for a deposit of £210 per person. First come, first served! The full balance will be due by the end of May 2020, I will of course be in touch about this.


As with all Hellfins trips, if you commit to the trip with the deposit, you will be liable for the cost of the trip even if you have to drop out. Given the cost of the trip, you may wish to check if your travel insurance would cover such a drop out. In addition, given how far we are away from the trip dates, it is likely that we could find someone to take your place if life gets in the way (just don't leave it too late to tell me!).


Any questions, let me know!
