Safety Guidelines

Dusk diving can be a lot of fun providing you follow some common-sense advice...
  • Get trained - considering signing up for a PADI Night Diver Specialty course
  • Always carry a primary torch with fresh batteries
  • Always carry a reliable backup torch
  • Do not dazzle other divers with your torch beam!
  • Use glowsticks or a strobe to aid buddy contact
  • Go slow and stay close to avoid buddy separation
  • Stay shallow - there's no reason to go deep!
Can you feel it? Yes folks, Spring is definitely in the air (well, sort of) and that can mean only one thing - it's time to grab your gear and head down to Vobster for a cheeky Thursday evening dip...

With the winter hopefully well and truly behind us, we celebrate the return of those long, warm(ish) Summer evenings with a welcome change to our regular opening hours. To celebrate the changing of the seasons, Vobster Quay is pleased to offer divers and swimmers alike the opportunity to take advantage of the longer, lighter evenings that British Summer Time brings with our late Thursday evening opening hours.

Starting from 26th April 2019 and running until 31st October 2019, we'll be keeping the gates open between 5:00pm and 9:30pm (exit the water by 9:00pm) for those who fancy a cheeky post-work dive or swim. It's the perfect opportunity to take a break from the working week so why not join us?

The first evening dive for the 2019 season will be announced shortly and with the sun pre-booked to dip below the horizon at shortly after 6:30pm (the lengths we go to, eh!), it's a great chance to snag a genuine dusk dive opportunity and who doesn't love a dusk dive? With the lake cloaked in darkness, it's like a whole new dive - just don't forget your torch!


Great for dive schools...


Our Thursday late opening hours are great for dive schools and clubs too. Whether you want to run a night dive specialty or simply get your club members in the water ready for the start of the new dive season, our Thursday evening late opening hours give you plenty of time to get some worthwhile training in.

Don't forget our special instructor deal - for every four students you bring along, one instructor gets in free! You can carry students across from previous visits too! Visit our For Dive Schools page for more information.


Discounted Entry...



As if the thought of being able to get a mid-week dive in isn't enough, we've made the deal even sweeter - arrive after 5:00pm and divers can take advantage of our discounted entry fees...

PADI Night Diver
DURATION: One evening with three open water dives
PREREQUISITES:
COST: £215
NEXT COURSE:
The PADI Night Diver speciality course is your introduction to a whole new way of diving, giving you the knowledge and skills to safely and competently conduct night dives with just just a torch and your new found skills to guide you.

You'll learn how to competently plan a night dive and further develop your navigation skills to allow you to find your way around under water without the aid of natural light. You'll also learn all about the specialist equipment needed to conduct night dives with particular attention given to the different types of torch available to the budding night diver. You and your buddy will learn how to communicate underwater and how to effectively deal with the hazards that can be potentially encountered on a night diving.

Through a combination of home study and knowledge review, the PADI Night Diver specialty course involves minimal classroom work with the emphasis placed firmly on practical learning! Over the course of three dives, you'll learn how to safely plan and conduct night dives as you develop your knowledge and experience under the watchful eye of your PADI instructor.

Congratulations to Ainsley Hatt stalwart Halton crew, qualifying as IANTD ART diver this week. Steadfast performance in big dives in challenging conditions. ‘All dives smooth and controlled’ says instructor Hugo Angel. High praise. #mvhalton #otterdrysuits #vqtech.

It’s been an outstanding trip for early season diving aboard MV Halton. All the classics, plus scenic walls and IANTD tech training on both OC and CC. Great crew, amazing team spirit among divers and a huge laugh. It was a pleasure to arrange. Massive weather, cracking food. Thanks everyone. #greenwatercoldsteel #vqtech #iantduk #vobsterquay #mvhalton #otterdrysuits #kubi #nautilusdiving #redbareccr

CCR diving offers an incredible new perspective on your diving ambitions. Ian Humphrey and Ross Freeguard have entered a new and rewarding world. No tech diving experience necessary - ask Ross who has arrived from sport diving to earn his place as a Tech CCR diver. Ian continues his tech progression building on a solid foundation of IANTD ART diving. Proud moments for #vqtech

Tim and Hugo depart for Mull. It’s the annual Vobster early season shakedown in the classic wrecks of Mull aboard MV Halton. Hello Storm Gareth, hold my brew, we’re going diving.

Five years since we took on rebreather manufacture alongside a lake, IANTD and Tribal Triathlon - there's always something going on at Vobster!
