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!

Where has the year gone? It seems only last week that we kicked off the first late Thursday opening for 2016 and here we are in October! Time clearly flies by when we're all having so much fun!

Winter may indeed be coming (minus the White Walkers, thankfully) but that's not... [more]

More unveiling of the RedBare CCR with the second set of test dives at Vobster. Coming along nicely - should have some try dive dates for this soon, likely to be after Christmas due to current bookings, but if you want to stick your name on the list, just give us a shout, email or reply to this message. Can do groups and schools also. Cheers, Tim

One of the highlights of TekCamp is the Icebreaker on Monday evening. Here attendees are challenged to transport thirsty instructors to claim some bespoke 'DecoBeer' from Fourth Element, located on the freedive platform. First they must assemble rafts, which put together one way, work fine, but if flung together any old how, are decidely 'unreliable'. One hand to impart some teamwork and Human Factors wisdom is Gareth Lock. Who will win? Will it be the technologically assisted rule breakers of John Kendall? Or vociferous Paul Vincent Toomer? Can Garry Dallas ever get out of flat trim? Watch to find out and we'll look forward to seeing you all next year for TekCamp 2017....

Who amongst us can say that they weren't inspired by the adventures of the original 'aquanaut', Jacques Cousteau? The movie L’Odyssée recreates the French ocean pioneer’s adventures aboard the Calypso and reveals the man behind the icon. Grab the popcorn - we are so there!

Reserved Car Parking at Vobster. We're very proud of our car parking system here at Vobster - Members can book by phone, email or online to reserve a space in the lower carpark at no extra charge. Any spaces we have left over are alloacted on a first come first served basis when we open the gates. However, in the last few weeks, we have had a number of spaces reserved, but not used - we usually keep these until 1030 / 11 ish unless you specifically ask us to keep them longer.

If you don't need it, please let us know and we can make sure someone else avoids the drop off / top carpark scenario. We'll always get as many as possible in the lower carpark and one day this may be you if you've forgotten to book, but it's heaps... [more]

Here's a little bit of CCR de mystifying! Want to know the chemistry that removes CO2 from a rebreather is working? Simple - the chemistry generates heat, so just measure the temperature! No heat, no scrubbing, time to breathe something else. Temp good? Enjoy your longer, quieter, warmer, cheaper dive..... ... and remember the burger van shuts at dark! Cheers, Tim
