Holiday dive trips for 2017

 

This page is designed to give you a brief look at all those magnificent destinations further afield that we as a club, are planning to visit during 2017. Have a look and see what you think.The Maldives Please remember that we are tour agents for the specialist dive tour operators, Regaldive, Sportif, Kuoni, Hayes and Jarvis, Diverse Travel, Blue O Two & Explorer Tours etc. and as such, we charge exactly the same price as the one in the brochure. No add on's and no mark ups. We charge exactly what it says on the tin. The advantage to you, is that we've visited the vast majority of our trip destinations many times so we know what to expect. Added to that, in all probability at least one staff member will also be going on the trip to ensure personally, that everything is as is should be. Does your usual holiday company do that? Further down the page, you will reach the section where we attempt to lighten your wallet by tempting you with club dive trips that we've arranged so far for this year. There will be others. Each year we aim to offer our members at least three trips to the Egyptian Red Sea together with one further 'Long Haul' destination. By doing this, all club members have at least one opportunity a year to dive a place that maybe that wouldn't otherwise visit if they were by themselves. Egypt is just five hours away from the UK and offers clear warm water, great wildlife and coral reefs together with an excellent level of service from both the hotels and the dive operators. As a dive club, we have visited it many times and lots of club members join us year after year.

Please remember that as tour agents, we can offer the same booking service on an individual basis even if you are not even travelling with us. So, if you see a trip you fancy in one of the dive brochures, we can offer it at the same price. The advantage to you by booking with us, is that we probably have the knowledge to guide you as to whether it's the sort of diving that will suit your experience levels. You don't want to book a family holiday and find that when you get there, it's not the sort of diving that you were looking for.
