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!

SICK OF GDPR YET?

Yeah, we get it - you're probably just a little bit bored of all this talk about the new General Data Protection Regulations ("GDPR") requirements that come into force on the 25th May. Sadly, though, there's no getting away from it all - from this Friday onwards, we won't be... [more]

Vobster Quay is on the lookout for new staff: general assistants (the unsung heroes) and divemasters - everyone gets paid and we provide training, including blending. CVs to info@vobser.com please!

Remember, this is how the Mission High Water team began....

Cheers, Tim

SIDEMOUNT IS GREAT:

A bit of attention to kit fettling, some attentive skills progression and Steve Cook delivers victory smiles with instructor Howard Angel. Streamlining, easy valve access and great balance, personalised setup from an experienced sidemount instructor - what's not to like?

REDBARE TRY DIVES:

Congratulations to Ross Freeguard, back for a second bite at the RedBare cherry, with excellent results. Lovely dive, good buoyancy control, session on menus, systems and downloading, big smiles to round off. See you soon for training Ross, great performance! Cheers, Tim

Massive congratulations for this fundraising effort by ex Vobster Staff Sarah Tingey and Rachael Priest. Dogged persistence and self belief really does get stuff done - we can all take a lesson from this. Cheers, Tim
