Diver training over the New Year

Dear Divers,

Below is an out line of our dive schedule for 2019.

  • January & February – Dry suit and specialty training in open water (lakes) available
  • March through November – Pool training recommences for PADI Open water course
  • May through October – Open water dives for PADI Open water course available
  • November & December - Dry suit and specialty training in open water (lakes) available

We are planning several Dive trips around the world in 2019, many of these will be suitable to conduct diver training. These will be posted upon the website as they become available.

UK open water diving season:

Inland there are multiple sites all over the UK where you can dive year round. Visibility is often best in the winter and occasionally the chance to dive under ice occurs. However the water temperature often requires a increased thermal protection such as a dry suit outside of October to March. It’s common to use a dry suit in the UK all year especially in lake s as the temperature at depth often stays low.

Sea diving is typically run April through October due to sea state. UK weather being what it is sea dives can be cancelled at quite short notice. At times the sea can be warmer that fresh water but dry suit diving is usual most of the year.

Regards, SDC team
