Scuba diving will give you the opportunity to experience what it feels like to ‘live’ under water. Most scuba divers enjoy diving for the purpose of seeing the beauty that lives under water. Recreational divers enjoy exploring the beauty of the ocean, sharks, fish, shipwrecks and much more.
With all this beauty and exciting ocean life why not start planning your very own scuba diving holiday?
Some tips on how to plan a scuba diving holiday:
- Your first consideration should be your level of experience in scuba diving.
- First time scuba divers may want to consider a resort where they will be able to receive professional scuba diving lessons.
- Arrange scuba diving equipment and lessons beforehand.
- For the more experience divers the possibilities are endless. You can enjoy a scuba diving holiday through a travel agent or save money and plan your own trip, experience a tropical diving holiday or go explore other marine environments.
- Scuba diving equipment when taking a flight – ALL scuba diving equipment except for tanks is allowed on aircraft. Tanks need to be completely depressurized, with their regulators removed. You can also consider shipping your diving equipment or renting diving equipment for your holiday.
- Plan and book your scuba diving holiday accommodation. You can choose from hotels and resorts that have easy access to the beach front or rent guest house accommodation and rent a car. Accommodation on Scuba cruises will vary according to luxury or plain accommodation.
Scuba Diving at Scapa Flow is a scuba diving holiday you are not likely to forget soon. Scapa Flow is a body of water in the Orkney Islands, Scotland, and United Kingdom, sheltered by the islands of Mainland, Graemsay, Burray, South Ronaldsay and Hoy. It is about 312 square km, with a sandy bottom not deeper than 60 meters and most of it more or less 30m deep.
Scapa Flow is one of the great natural anchorages of the world, with sufficient space to hold a number of navies. Viking ships anchored at Scapa Flow more than 1 000 years ago, but it is best known for being the United Kingdom’s chief naval base during World War one and two.
One of the best dive sites in the world is at Scapa Flow, Orkney Islands. There are a dozen or so live aboard boats which are mostly converted trawlers with bunk rooms in their former holds that take recreational divers out to the main diving sites from the main harbour in Stromness. However why settle for something so basic when you can stay at a charming 1800’s style harbour cottage in Stromness and have all the luxury of home while on your scuba diving holiday.
