Congratulations GP on your 100th dive.

Well done to new addition Dmitry on his first boat dive and congratulationd GP on your 100th dive.

Thanks to Roberta for organising the dive and pictures along with Gillian. Also to Skipper Paul Crowe of Dive StAbbs.

 

Another excellent evenings dive

Once again our Tuesday evening dive proved as good as they get. This time, Paul, skipper of Shore Diver took us to Tye’s Tunnel and while most of the divers had done this dive before, there were some who had not, so a great experience for them.

Once through, we all headed into deeper waters where there was an abundance of sea life, Pollock, Wrasse, Lobsters, Octupus, Ling and some even saw a shoal of squid!

On the trip were Roberta,GP, Michael, David Gray,Ruth, Steve Taylor, Brian Lyell, Ian, Penny.

Again thanks to Roberta for organising and Skipper Paul Crowe of Dive St Abbs for the dive site choice.

 

 

Tuesday evening dive

Another successful dive. On our time away from pool training, Roberta McMath our training officer has arranged these evening dives out of St Abbs on Shore Diver. This is now our third such dive where we were taken to Anemone Gulley, which it turned out to be one of the best so far with most seeing more than one wolfish plus the usual lobster wrasse etc. One group spotted a MASSIVE Conger eal, nice one Roberta and dive buddy GP.

On the dive we had Dave Simpson, Michael Groat, Rahdu, Roberta McMath, GP, Brian Lyell, Penny (MSAC), Steve Talor, Graeme Dyer.

Pictures are not the best as Brian was using an old camera, not been used for a few years!

2nd Tuesday Evening Dive

Our 2nd Tuesday evening dive of 2019 and the weather wasn’t as great as previous dives, this didn’t stop us having another great dive.

This time Paul, skipper and owner of Dive St Abbs took us to Black Carr.
