Diving Around Lundy
The skipper, Colin, has 32 years experience of diving around Lundy and the North Devon Coast. He is a regional instructor, a qualified oxygen administrator, holds a Masters ticket and is Helmsman of the local lifeboat.
Whilst on board you can dive lesser known wrecks on Lundy, such as the 'Earl of Jersey' or 'Heroine', as well as all the favourites like the 'Carmine Filomena' and the 'Robert' and 'Montague'. You might want to enjoy a night dive to see the unusual night life such as the red band fish or dive with the basking sharks and stroke the friendly seals. Lundy Murrelet is the only boat in the area licensed for night diving.
The passage to Lundy from Appledore takes approximately 1 hours 20 minutes and 1 hour from Clovelly. Most diving is between 9 and 40 metres in visibility up to 30 metres.
In 1986 the waters around Lundy were designated Britain's first statutory Marine Nature Reserve in recognition of the outstanding marine life found around the Island. The Reserve offers many attractions for the diver. You will find a wide range of underwater landscapes and habitats and a wealth of unusual species which are outstandingly colourful. Lundy sits in a warm water current which brings many rare, warm water species to the island including five different types of corals. Due to the nature of the tidal races and weather around the island, the experience that we bring to your venture will greatly add to your safety and enjoyment.
Accomodation can be arranged on Lundy, Appledore or Clovelly and should you require information on how to book, just contact us. Sailings are subject to weather condition.
