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!

Fancy a dive this weekend? We're open through the bank holiday weekend - including bank holiday Monday - so why not pop in for a dip? As you can see from this photo taken today by pro photographer Jason Brown of BARDOCreative, the viz is pretty fabulous :-)

Warm and clear enough for Freediving!

Cracking day for try dives on the VMS Sentinel RedHead. Perfect performance form the RedHead and some excellent diving from Karol Tokarczyk and Hannah Tokarczyk. Karol had a great dive, getting good buoyancy and trim on the RedHead straightaway, but real credit goes to Hannah, who on just dive 42 demonstrated buoyancy control on CCR that many divers would be envious of. Very proud to have assisted them towards the silent world. Cheers, Tim

Viz and Temp report: It's been a while and the Sun has been busy, along with the zebra mussels. The surface temp is a whoppingly warm 14 degrees C, while viz in the shallows is 8m - the entire length of the 6m skills platform is visible from the surface today. Deeper, it's more like 6m and 10 degrees. At the bottom, still 8 degrees and surprisingly, 1m of viz. That's one metre more than normal, but mind the lakebed, or that 1m won't last. Cheers, Tim

We're pleased to announce that [weblink] is back online! The IT geeks worked overtime to fix the issue - we did suggest 'switching it off and on again' but they didn't look amused.
