Diving in Oban is wonderful. Aside from the incredible diving, Oban's a full sized city so has a wide range of facilities available including some great restaurants and large supermarkets. The west-coast location is truly beautiful. The diving really is superb. Generally good visibility with loads of life, diving on walls, drifts, wrecks are great for all levels of divers. Would like to gauge interest in a week's diving next May or June 2019. The three neap weeks are 27th May (spring bank hol), and the 10th & 24th June. Diving would be off a hard boat, Urchin, from Puffin Dive Centre. Accommodation would be in their on-site chalets which have 4 rooms and accommodate up to 7 people (2 twin rooms, one bunk bed room, one small single room). We'd have the chalets from Saturday 1600, checking out the following Saturday at 0930. This would give flexibility to arrive when you want and do some shore diving on the Sunday. Urchin's a quirky boat, but fully enclosed. Works well. Lunch and snacks would be provided. Two dives a day. There's no gas fills on the boat, so you'd need to have sufficient gas for the second dive. Puffin has a fully equipped dive shop and service centre, so can rent pretty much anything (drysuit!). Gas is available including the famous self-service air filling station. Nitrox is also available. Target sites would include the Hispania, Shauna, Rondo, Thesis, Breda plus various scenic walls and drifts. These are perfect for AOW / SD level divers. The great thing about Oban/Sound of Mull is you can dive in all weathers. Literally. Last year (2017) we dived in a force 9 gale in a sheltered site for two days! Costs would be shared between divers. We'd have a maximum of 12 divers and the possibility of up to 2 non divers (paying a reduced rate for accomodation only). It would be under £500 each if we have 10 divers, dropping to £420 each for 12. Non-divers would be £160 for accommodation. Will calculate the exact price when numbers are known. Would be looking for a £250 deposit up front (have to pay a deposit to Puffin), with the balance 2 months before. So who's interested and which dates?
