This gallery has some photos from our August 2011 dive trip to Scapa Flow aboard the excellent Radiant Queen charter boat. We were based in Stromness, Orkney (Scotland), doing two dives per day over two weeks.
These photos are from our November (yes really) 2011 weekend diving out of Castletown, Portland, Dorset.
It was the first dive trip using the 7m RIB ‘Perseverance’ which we have overhauled for (and borrow from) from the 1st Standlake & Cokethorpe Sea Scouts. We launched from Castletown slipway and dived in and around the harbour. We also made it out around the Bill to the James Fennel. No underwater photos as the vis wasn’t so great, but it was lovely weather and a good run out for the boat, which was a decent dive platform and pleased us all.
Here are some photos from our weekend diving some of the wrecks around Portland. With 10m+ vis and lovely sunny warm weather this was a great weekend. The only downer was that away from Portland the vis was so poor we had to abort a dive on the Sidon before it even got started.

Here are some photos from two of our members’ January 2011 trip to Hurghada, Egypt to dive the Red Sea – one of the best places to dive in the World. This particular trip was “Straits of Tiran and the North” organised by Blue O Two – who were very good.
