Attraction Information

Pete's Lurve Shack - aka the Vobster Quay Caravan - is lowered into the water...

Live it up in luxury inside this fully-equipped caravan - all mod-cons provided!

Divers with suitable penetration training will enjoy exploring inside the caravan...
If you're travelling to Vobster Quay and require somewhere to stay overnight, there are plenty of hotels and bed & breakfast accommodations in the local area that will be happy to put you up for the night.

For those looking for something a little different, though, be sure to check out Vobster Quay's very own onsite accommodation... Pete's Lurve Shack.

Donated by a former Vobster Quay staff member, Pete's Lurve Shack is a fully-equipped caravan that now lies submerged in the lake at a maximum depth of 25 metres. With lovely views of the lake and all mod cons, we regret that the damp-proofing isn't what it used to be. For divers in need of a quick stop over, though, it's well worth a visit.

To allow easy penetration for the suitably qualified, we've increased the height of the main window at the front of the caravan. Inside you'll find a lot of the original fittings still in place including a cooker, sink and even a shower! Now consigned to the depths of Vobster Quay, visiting Pete's Lurve Shack is more fun than a week in Skegness.

Unless you're trained and comfortable inside a confined space, we strongly recommend that you peer in through the windows rather than enter the caravan directly - leave the 'big push' to those more qualified to do so. We recommend a torch too - it can get pretty dark in there!
SAFETY FIRST: Only very experienced divers with overhead environment training should enter the caravan. Movement inside both is very restrictive and the cold, darkness and depth can be very disorientating. If in doubt, DO NOT ENTER!

Ho Ho Ho! Feeling suitably festive yet? Don't worry - we're still struggling with the concept of no more BBQs and dark evenings too. We're sure that by the time December comes around, though, you'll be whistling 'Jingle Bells' and hankering after a hot toddy with your mince pie.

'Pre loved' Hollis eSCR Explorer - £2500.

Here's the chance to own the ground breaking eSCR from Hollis at a very attractive price. We have one unit we are selling on behalf of a diver as they move onto more advanced CCR adventures. It has just been serviced and has 'as new' electronics, making it dive ready... [more]

Vobster Malta trip - final dive on Le Polynesian - perfect for the VMS Sentinel. Cheers, Tim

The great glove debate! The dry comforting world of KUBI is an alluring place for the Winter, but this shot from Malta is a tiny reminder of the benefits of a good 'old fashioned' wet glove. The Oceanic Pioneer gloves here are 3mm while the Makos are 5mm, both excellently supple and very warm for their thickness. Best of all, they are pretty cost effective. Cheers, Tim

As October creeps up on us like a ninja in slippers, we head into the home straight of our Thursday late opening hours - Thursday November 5th will quite literally be the very latest evening of 2015 on which you'll be able to sneak in a 'cheeky' post work dive... [more]

Father and Son team, Milan and Rene Karcol completed their IANTD OC Normoxic sidemount course in Malta this week, with excellent dives down to 56m. It has been a great pleasure to work with these guys from IANTD Sidemount, through Deep and ART to Normoxic. Their team skills are strong, their buoyancy control on ascent is solid and gas management on the button every time. They can look forward to many great adventures. Thanks Team Karcol, I've been proud to be part of your journey. Cheers, Tim
