    Welcome! The good news is you've got some world class diving right next to you.

    Seahouses / Farne Islands is a great place to go for some scenic life and seal encounters. Just north of the border, St Abbs is home to a marine reserve with more great sites. Eyemouth is even better. One of the best boats in the UK (imo) runs out of there to the many many wrecks around the Firth of Forth area.

    Can't help with local divers as I'm over in the north west but once you find a bunch you're in for a treat.

    Welcome, Kevin - we plan to move North from Suffolk in the next few months. Not as far as Northumberland but hopefully the Farnes will be a reasonable drive.

    Welcome kev

    Your very lucky Northumberland is a fantastic place dive. So much choice in such a small area. Have you tried any of the local padi/BSAC clubs.
