TRICKLE DOWN:
TRICKLE UP.
POSTED: 14th April 2017

Vobster Quay Inland Diving Centre with Pete Shaw and 2 others.

From right to left here is Pete Shaw, Vobster Quay instructor being evaluated for his IANTD Normoxic Plus (70m) by Howard Angel, Vobster Quay Technical Instructor, ( who is being evaluated by Tim Clements, Vobster Quay Technical Instructor Trainer). In turn, Tim is being evaluated as a Normoxic Plus IT by IANTD Technical Director and ITT Phil Short. The upshot after four days of intense evaluation and very rewarding diving education at all levels, is congratulations for Pete, completing his Normoxic Plus, Howard now a Normoxic Plus instructor and Tim now a Normoxic Trimix Plus instructor trainer.That's the trickle down.

The trickle up is that we are now delighted to have extended the scope of technical training for both divers and instructors at Vobster Quay. Whatever level you come to us at, we can distil advanced diving knowledge in an educational and informative way, with safety and enjoyable learning at the forefront. What we teach is born from long experience at every level from Howard through Tim to Phil, which means you can be assured of high end diving education tailored to your ambitions.


JOIN US FOR A
DIP THIS EASTER WEEKEND!
POSTED: 11th April 2017

Is it really Easter this weekend?! Where's the year gone already?!!!!! Yes folks, it's that time of year we all look forward to - the traditional start of the UK diving season marked in time-honoured fashion by four glorious days of no work, too much chocolate and lots of diving!

As always, we'll be open throughout the long Easter weekend - including Bank Holiday Monday - so make the most of the time off work with a visit to Vobster Quay. If this is your first dive of the year them Vobster is the perfect place to dust off the cobwebs and get both your kit and your skills sorted before you venture forth into the salty stuff. No one likes a spoilt dive due to a dodgy regulator or a leaky drysuit - better to discover the fault at Vobster than 5 miles out in the English channel!

Naturally we'll be putting on our signature smiles and will be more than happy to help you eat your Easter eggs so come on down and join in the fun :)

Two words today: DPV and Sidemount. After a crayfish related 1.3k science mission, some essential 'battery maintenance' was undertaken. Didn't quite 'bust the tower', but it's awesome how much more you can see with a DPV..... Apeks WSX sidemount harness - excellent! SUEX scooters - smiles right across the chops.

ATTENTION: 7m VIZ AT 34m.

For the first time in 11 years, I have seen good viz at the bottom of Vobster. During a RedBare software test dive today, Hugo Angel and I descended the rope to the centre shot at 34m and could easily orientate from the cliff to the shot and swim back... [more]
