“Hello All

Fancy diving of the beautiful historical coast of Portland? Preeda and Ali G are running a fabulous Rib trip to explore the wrecks of Portland the weekend of 9/10 June 2018.  This is aimed at Sports Divers so you should be dived up for depths to 35m.

If you have not been on a rib trip before, you are in for a treat. Here are a few things about what to expect to see under the surface:-

Wrecks in Portland include submarines, U-Boats, freighters, warships, passenger liners and cargo vessels. Depths of the wrecks vary from 10 metres to 50 metres plus. The wrecks provide ideal opportunities to explore our maritime past, or to enjoy the aquatic life that these incredible wrecks attract.

Marine Life you can expect to see include: Bib, Pouting, Pollock, Ballan Wrasse, Corkwing Wrasse,Blennies, Dog Fish Crabs, Edible crabs, Lobsters, Squat Lobsters, Scallops and Mussels abound, together with many flat fish including Top knot and Rays. There are also many Snakelock Anemones, Nudibranchs and Pipefish, together with many types of seaweed and kelp, providing a kaleidoscope of colour in the spring and summer.

We’re looking into accommodation but it will likely be caravans or perhaps the Bunker if they have space. Costs will be low, we’re estimating around the £100 mark for diving and accommodation –bargain! Please contact me to express interest Preeda dot HarishKumar at gmail dot com.

As ever the usual “Hellfins you-say/you-pay policy” applies – once a payment has been taken you are committing to the full amount should you need to drop out for whatever reason, unless a replacement can be found acceptable to both organiser/s and the Diving Officer.

Looking forward to hearing from you
Merry Christmas
