JOIN US FOR A
DIP THIS EASTER WEEKEND!
POSTED: 17th April 2014

Is it really Easter already?! Where's the year gone!!!!! 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 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!


THURSDAY EVENING LATE
OPENING IS BACK!
POSTED: 03rd April 2014

With the winter hopefully well and truly behind us, it's time to look forward to the return of those long, warm (ish) Summer evenings. To celebrate the changing of the seasons, we're pleased to announce that our popular Thursday evening late opening hours are set to return!

Starting from the 24th April and running until the end of October, we'll be keeping the gates open between 5:00pm and 9:30pm (exit the water by 9:00pm) for those who fancy a cheeky post-work dive or swim. It's the perfect opportunity to take a break from the working week so why not join us?

If you're a diver then you can also benefit from discounted entry - member divers pay only 7.50 whilst non-members pay only 9.00. See you all at the waterside!

POSTED: 19th March 2014

Think different and make a bold statement this Spring with a custom-coloured 'Select' wing from Halcyon. Choose from a wide range of colours and mix 'n' match upto three different coloured panels to suit your mood and personality. From funky day-glow orange with yellow accents to military camo green with a hint of Royal Blue and Charcoal Grey (suits you, sir), there's never been a better opportunity to show the world your true colours!

This new custom options add only 42 to the price of a Traveler Pro, Eclipse, Evolve or Explorer wing. Lead time of 4-5 weeks on all custom-coloured wings.

Busy week this week, completing various rebreather courses. Congratulations to Jonathan Reynolds, Darren Harper and Dave Longhurst becoming Sentinel CCR divers. Josh Yates is now another Vobster team member who dives the Hollis Explorer and Don McQueen and Andrew Walrond begin their Normoxic OC journey. Next stop - MALTA! Cheers, Tim

Monday Temp and Viz update: In summary, it's a bit April! Definitely creeping up for temperature, with max surface temp of 9 degrees last week on the proper thermometer, 8.5 on the crushing works on my watch and a couple of divers finding colder bits with Suunto units. Viz varying from good to not so good depending on mussels and other divers! Viz mainly in the 4-10m category so you could get lucky. It's much better by the truck and Peveril pride. Cheers Tim

Monday temp and Viz update: GREAT NEWS, the viz has jumped this week following settlement of the mussel spat! The 6m platforms are all clearly visible from the surface, the surface is visible from the Jacquin and it is possible to see all rungs on the crushing works trapeze from within the crushing works. Down at the Jesters and far side - BETTER. Temperature is consistently over 8 degrees so book your parking in the sun next to the Vobster riviera for great early season dives, shakedowns and training where you can, once again, see you students clearly! Cheers, Tim
