    Hi all,

    Thanks for what has so far proven to be a good resource of information!

    I'm Chris, based just South of London. im hoping to get the opportunity to dive more in this region having qualified last year!

    Thanks for now!
    Chris

    Hi Chris

    Lots of good stuff to dive south of you. Have you dived in the UK yet?

    Hi!

    I did live quite nearby to you JB but I've moved a bit further south closer to Gatwick now.

    Not properly Wibble - I've done the various quarries (Wraysbury, Vobster, NDAC) but not the sea yet. Having recently joined a club I'm looking forward to getting out soon - hopefully my first UK outing will be this weekend!

    If your club's good, use them. Otherwise Newhaven Scuba's worth looking at as they're an active PADI outfit with a RIB. They will match you up with other suitable divers for your first sea dives.

    Further west is Selsea with a similarly active shop.

    Alas the weather's a bit crap this year. I'm betting on a brilliant equinox to do some catch-up diving.
