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!

Jeremy Clarkson hates them, but here's the Vobster caravan, aka Pete's Love Shack, bucket list dive for the VQCP. Thanks again Marcus Blatchford

Marcus tempts us with another viztastic shot, this time of the Jacquin at 18m. Cheers, Tim

Viz and Temp report: This shot from Marcus Blatchford say it all - a rare opportunity to cruise around the Jesters - each of these is 3m tall and over 10m apart. The temp is also still a very diveable 8 degrees (7.9 if we want to be precise). Cheers, Tim

The viz continues to astound with reports of upto 20m of crystal clear water to enjoy. Want proof? Check out these awesome photos from talented underwater photographer and Vobster regular John Price - these were taken on Wednesday and show the second wheelhouse in 24m of depth. As you can see, 'Jester Henge' (as we affectionately call it) can clearly be seen in the background.

So who's coming diving this weekend? Fresh water diving doesn't get much better than this folks and there's never been a better opportunity to enjoy the superb conditions :-)

More proof from the 24m level - this is the yacht 'Poppy' over on the far side near the Jesters. All Jesters can be seen from the deep wheelhouse, which indicates viz of 15m in places! Both the far side of the quarry and the crushing works can be seen from the deep wheelhouse in the middle. I have only once seen viz like this at Vobster and never lasting more than a week - this has been two weeks now. Cheers, Tim

Great images by Michael Thomas from the CDG skills event yesterday. A great day to be underwater with some fine visibility.
