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!

Howard Angel takes control for a crisp demo of the IANTD setpiece no mask out-of-gas drill. Beginning with a land demo, this progresses to full distance underwater and builds excellent confidence in underwater problem solving for divers at all levels. No more panicky CESAs when you can do this with confidence on a good rig, with a sound gas plan. Cheers Tim

Really proud to announce that the raffle raised £1790 for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. The volunteers who helped on the day said 'We have never seen people give like this, we were completely overwhelmed with the generosity shown'. Thanks to all our suppliers and supporters.POSTED: 15th December 2014

Thanks so much to the 164 Santa divers who took part today in the RNLI sponsored dive at Vobster Quay. We missed last year’s target of 175 so no new record this year, but a great time was had by all. Thanks to the RNLI for their support... [more]POSTED: 14th December 2014
