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!

It’s always a privilege to be part of someone’s first diving course, helping them to learn the skills required to have fun and stay safe under the water, learning in the manner that comes most naturally to each of us as individuals.

This week though, has been extra-special and something that I’m personally very proud to have been involved with. Six of Great Britain’s finest, supported by the amazing Help for Heroes Official organisation, took on the challenge of learning to dive and approached it with the attitude, determination and humour...

Ever wondered what it's like to breathe underwater but not quite sure whether scuba diving is right for you? If so then the PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience is for you! A 2 hour session costing only £35/person will give you the perfect opportunity to learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to - after all, we humans aren't designed to breathe underwater - but after little more than just a few minutes, most participants come to realise just how easy scuba diving really is.... [more]
