Informative stuff...

Dive Attraction Map
Still can't find the crushing works?

Dive Attraction Bearings
Good with a compass? You need this...
Even in the clearest visibility, it's easy to get lost underwater. With a laminated copy of these bearings and a good compass strapped to your arm or mounted in your regulator console, though, you'll never get lost again.

Regional Map
Don't get lost on your next visit!
Unless you've got the navigational skills of a particularly clever homing pigeon with a GPS tucked under its wing, we appreciate that Vobster Quay isn't the easiest place in the world to find. With this handy map of the south of England, though, finding us needn't give you a headache...

Local Map
Not sure which way to turn?
You're close... very close. So close, infact, that you can almost smell the bacon baps in the air! Still can't find us, though? Well, you can either use your sense of smell to 'sniff' your way in or - better still - go prepared by downloading this detailed map before you leave home...

Terms & Conditions of Entry
Dull legal stuff that you need to know...
Lawyers, eh - who needs 'em! Unfortunately, they insisted that we upload our terms & conditions of entry to 'cover our a*ses' (the correct legal term, apparently). Read it, understand it and fall asleep (probably). Why can't we all just get along, eh? Life would just be so much easier...
