Boat trips

Join Dave your skipper, guide and well known local diver and marine wild life photographer for an exciting trip of exploration aboard Tiburon. Each cruise begins with a friendly introduction and safety briefing, before leaving St.Mary's harbour.

The chosen route will depend on the sea conditions of the day. Wherever you go your skipper will choose the most gorgeous, scenic, photographic locations and route available, along the way he will point out things of interest and even tell you the names of his favourite grey seals.

A private family treat or special occasion can be arranged with a tour around the islands stopping off for lunch, tea or even a swim with seals, have the boat to yourselves (with skipper) and go where you would like.

This can incorporate a trip to the Bishop Rock Light House and then landing on St.Agnes for collection later if you desire. A trip out to indulge yourselves watching the seals, bring your wetsuits and swim in a sheltered secluded spot the possibilities are endless.

Why dive the Isles of Scilly?

The Isles of Scilly are located 28 miles off Lands Ends, Cornwall the most south westerly point of England and because of the geographical location of the islands and the nearby gulf-stream the surrounding sea water is extremely rich in marine nutrients. The islands are known for there crystal clear underwater visibility which provides an outstanding memorable experience for divers looking for a new diving location.

The outer reef walls emerge from incredible depths creating the most fascinating underwater landscapes that include stunning gigantic underwater rock formations and reef walls of thriving marine life, covered in colourful fauna, rare Sponges, Cup corals and reefs with Football sea squirts and protected Sea fans. Marine biologists and enthusiastic underwater photographers visit these isolated tranquil islands several times a year to look for and record more rare species.

These beautiful Islands have got to be one of the best places for diving around the British Isles. If you're considering a diving holiday UK style then I thoroughly recommend putting Scillies on your must do dive list for the best scuba diving experience you can have.

The Islands are also well known for there numerous treasure shipwrecks, protected historic ship wrecks, steamships and modern shipwrecks that in times gone-by have struck the rugged rocks of the islands with devastating consequences.
