Suunto Diving UK is hosting a special weekend this weekend and you’re invited.
If you learned to scuba dive overseas, or you have only dived our inland sites, this event is for you.
Our seas are not boring, silty and cold – British Seas Are Cool!
‘Discover UK Diving’ is being held on 16 and 17 June 2018 at Wraysbury Dive Centre.
The UK has some of the very best wreck diving in the world, and you’ll learn about Great British Diving from some great guest speakers.
Topics include the fauna and flora found within British waters, club diving and photography tips.
Come and ask questions, and test dive the Suunto EON core, you will be made most welcome.
We spoke to the following UK dive centres today to check their opening hours this weekend.
We cannot advise on the status at ‘Blue Lagoon Dive Centre‘ because we were unable to speak to anyone there.
Whatever your diving plans are this weekend, please be careful out there.

Anyone with a booking will be contacted via email. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience.”
“Stoney Cove will be open over the weekend. There is a dusting of snow on the car park, the road down to the gate has been gritted, so access is not a problem. The Surface temp 4°C. Visibilty 3 – 8 metres, vis is good at all depths.”
“The drifting snow on Mendip has created some uncertain and variable driving conditions.
