Winter Pier and Wreck Dive Combination!
Join me in the Outer Hebrides for a Winter combination of a 'Pier and Wreck Dive'!
The actual dive will last for about 3 Hours ... but again with meeting and greeting / kitting out / travel to dive site and then extraction and doffing you can be assured that the whole days' activity will be around about 7 hours!!!
Leaving from a nearby jetty at Loch Carnan we'll enter the confines of the multi-layer and substantially long pier after around about 50 metres of finning. This pier is adjacent to an oil / petroleum storage depot and has a thick wooden planked ceiling above it. There is a multitude of different gaps and exciting confines to navigate through!
After a really decent amount of time spent here, we will then exit the pier and continue on our dive around the headland with a tea break half-way before we encounter the wreck: The FV Fairweather! This fishing vessel hit the rocks of the Flagros out in the Minch and sank in 1973! It was then refloated by salvagers and towed to where it now rests in about 5 metres of water. We'll dive around the wreck and if you are fit-enough you will be able to 'reverse shuffle' your way up onto the slanted decks of this remarkable vessel and survey the beautiful bay from this unique vantage point!
Message me today and I'll set about organising an amazing Winter Adventure Snorkel / Freedive for you!
And remember Benbecula has its very own airport so you can fly in just under half an hour - direct from Glasgow!!
Alternatively, there are 2 ferry ports for travel from either Mallaig (1 hour from Fort William) or Uig on the Isle of Skye.
Accommodation can also be arranged - if you are making the effort to travel up in Winter, then just let me know how I can assist you!!
