The skipper of the MV Halton (Bob Anderson) is seeking new boat crew for the 2017 season.

The sturdy Halton is 21 mt /70 ft former Danish trawler providing day-boat and liveaboard charters to divers in Scapa Flow and beyond.

She is primarily based in Scapa Flow and dives from Trondheim in Norway to the Hebrides and Malin Head.

The job includes filling cylinders, keeping the dive deck tidy, rope work and looking after the divers.

DOWNSIDES

The hours can be punishing, the time away wearing and living on the boat claustrophobic.

UPSIDES

This is not a long-term diving holiday. However time is allowed for the crew to get into the water and dive some remarkable places. You’ll be part of a strong supportive team and receive training in areas you are unsure.

Bob Anderson has traditionally employed a diver because they understand the customers.

“Please¬†be very aware you will be ‘front of house’ and be facing clients daily: a good manner with people is of prime importance!¬†

Having said all that, this is a rare and valuable opportunity. Your predecessors have laid a high standard and allowed to boat to cover an itinerary that is second to none. I have relied on some of the best people you can imagine and the Halton has absorbed their hard work into her oak.”
