An introduction to Divers Down
Swanage, on the South Coast in Dorset, has much to offer, with its rolling green hills to one side of the Bay and Peveril Point to the other.
But undoubtedly the main attraction for divers is Divers Down, Britain’s oldest dive school, established in 1958.
Swanage has always been a popular dive site for all standards of diver and this year Divers Down celebrates its 56th Anniversary.
These include, Kyarra, Betsy Anna, Valentine Tanks, Aeolian Sky, Carantan, Firth Fisher, Venezuela, Hazlewood, Aparema, Avanti, Everleigh, Simla, Smyrna and many more.
Our Shop on Swanage Pier sells a large variety of equipment including Masks, Fins, Snorkels, Clips, Bags, Bungee, Hoods, Gloves, Boots, Reels, SMB's, Neck Seals, Wrists Seals, Glues and much, much more.
School & Sightseeing Trips
We run regular educational trips for schools and other groups, during the summer months. Two of our boats are particularly suited to this and each boat takes a small group of 12 pupils plus one teacher. We can give informative talks on errosion, local landmarks and features etc. showing off the beauty of the Jurassic Coast around Old Harry Rocks and to the Peveril Lighthouse.
We have operated these trips for many years now and they are proving increasingly popular with all trips tailored to suit your requirements.
