Seasons Greetings!

Summer UK diving at it's best.

The UK diving season will be here quicker than you can say “beast of the east 2” and while some warmer water divers are looking forward to their summer ‘olidee’s somewhere hot ‘n far flung, others are ironing their dry suits (don’t try that) and working some life back into a BCD that’s been stuffed under the bed since it’s last outing the previous summer.   Having spent a bunch of time on busy dive boats in places like Cozumel or rushing to get in the water before the crowds at Iceland’s Silfra fissure. (indeed, first world problems) – at this time of year, I start to look forward to UK diving more than any other place in the world – and here’s why.

It’s always like this on a UK dive boat…

Just moments off our beloved UK coast, I believe it is possible to explore in the true sense of the word, just you and your dive partner, at your own pace, your own depth and often never meeting another soul during the entire dive. Although I prefer to share the experience, many UK divers choose to dive alone and completely immerse themselves in the experience solo style. Not something you’re ever really able to do on a standard tourists dive boat.   Unless you choose to dive at one of the more frequented wreck sites like Dorset’s M2 submarine or let’s say the Kyarra, then for my money, there’s no place better than the UK to explore wrecks from both world wars. These destinations are essentially underwater museums frequented by only a few people and away from the gopro selfie stick waving crowds. The wreck of the James Eagan lane, just off the coast of Cornawall is in fact a cousin of everyone’s favouritite Liberty ship – the Thistlegorm. Much like the Thistlegorm, with perhaps fewer vehicles and welly boots to speak of, it is possible to penetrate the spacious interior from end to end and the visibility is usually brill. Not only do we boast some of the best wrecks around, we also boast some pretty lary looking fish species, like the male cuckoo wrasse pictured here checking itself out in my mask. Around certain parts of the Sussex and Dorset coastline in August, it’s possible to dive with grey triggerfish – these guys are visitors to the UK, travelling from their native western Atlantic waters and South American waters. The UK provides some of the richest wall dives, with many of them adorned with dazzling jewel anemone – pictured here impressing a famously hard to please Spanish diver somewhere off Plymouth.

And that’s not all, “warm water holiday diver”s, because the fun doesn’t stop there – aboard a UK dive (hard) boat, there’s none of this handing your weights and equipment up to a waiting skipper – UK divers are hoisted up, out of the water in one piece by a lift, escorted to their seats and plied with hot chocolate, pasties, cakes and other healthy treats, before peeling off suits and enjoying a leisurely surface interval. Sometimes it’s possible to gorp at passing dolphins, minky whale and sunfish while off gassing, before it’s time to drop back in to the (sometimes) clear, cool water.

Liveaboard style fin service.

Yes yes, of course I love diving abroad, in shorts and a rash vest with endless visibility, or messing about in Cenotes. But, if I really want to escape the crowds and leave the conveyor belt of diving tourists behind to do some adventuring on my own terms, then I’m hopping on one of my favourite south coast UK dive boats to explore off the beaten reef.

He stood there for a long time. Tami Joan and John desperately retreated until they reached the other side of the door, holding two sweaty bodies tightly together. The drivers hand bent into the shape of 70-483 Dumps a cup, blocking the lights shone on the street light, looked at them more carefully. Suddenly, a loud noise echoed in the air. Tameron could not help but constricted a while, and John made a short, screaming scream. Behind 101 test the driver, the air in the distance was filled with bright red and blue flame stripes instantly. Then again is a few roar Examtestview and scream. The driver Cisco 210-260 Dumps turns and looks up, just to see a huge, orange-red cobweb over the city. It was a fireworks, and Tamie remembered the news read in the newspaper. It is a gift from the host Cisco 210-260 Dumps and the Cisco 210-260 Dumps Secretary-General of the United Nations to the delegates attending the conference and welcomes them to this great city on Examtestview Earth. The driver turned toward the taxi again. Pat soon, he opened the door lock, slowly opened the Cisco 210-260 Dumps door. 2 As usual, the informant did Cisco 210-260 Dumps not leave a name. Therefore, there is no other way to pour back into the past to 70-483 Dumps understand what the reporter said is a piece of open space. The headquarters radio said He said it was Itexamplan on the 37th Cisco 210-260 Dumps Street near Eleventh Street. Those at the Notification Center never figured out where the 101 test exact location of the murder was. Although it is nine oclock in the morning, it has made people sweat more than 70-483 Dumps hot. Emilia Shakes lay aside a tall grass thatch. She is conducting a search of light – a jargon of crime scene investigators – searching for suspicious objects with an S-shaped route. Nothing Cisco 210-260 Dumps at all She looked down at the intercom on the dark blue uniform shirt. Patrolman 5885 calls headquarters without any notice. Do you have any further news The dispatcher replied 101 test in a bumpy noise 5885, there is no more information about the scene of the crime at Cisco 210-260 Dumps the moment, but one Cisco 210-260 Dumps thing 70-483 Dumps Examtestview The informant said he hoped 70-483 Dumps the victim was dead. Please say it again, headquarters. The complainant said he hoped the victim was already dead. He said it would be best if so. Finished. Hopefully the victim Dead Itexamplan Shakes struggled across a broken barbed wire and began searching for another piece of open space. Still 101 test 70-483 Dumps not found. She wants to leave. Just call Itexamplan 10-90, Itexamplan report that without any discovery, you can return to the Si Si area, it is her daily patrol area. Her knees hurt and she felt as if she had been Examtestview roasted on a terrible August day. She just wanted to slip to the Port Authority and get stuck with the Little Furrier there and come Itexamplan back to a large can of Cisco 210-260 Dumps Arizona iced tea. Then, at eleven thirty – just two hours now – she was able to clear the drawers in the Examtestview south section of Midtown and go to the lower town Itexamplan for training. But she finally did not do this. She can not leave 101 test this briefing without answering the phone call. As she Examtestview continued Itexamplan to move on, Cisco 210-260 Dumps 101 test she walked along the hot sidewalk through the path between the two abandoned apartments Examtestview and into another covered, planted area. She slid her slender forefinger down into Examtestview her Examtestview flat-top hat and scratched it with irresistible restraints through layers of long, red hair on her head. 101 test In order to scratch more scalp, she simply faded her cap side, while crazy scratch. Sweat streaming Cisco 210-260 Dumps down her forehead, itchy, so she fiercely blew a few brows.

Why did you block Eleven Street What are 101 test 70-483 Dumps you thinking She looked at the broad street and she was still using her trash Set barricades blocked. Shes been accustomed to the horn of a car for a long time, but now I realize its 70-483 Dumps too loud, and 101 test the long queue of plugged cars stretches for miles. Chief, the first police officer who arrived at the scene was responsible for arresting the suspect, placing eyewitnesses Itexamplan and protecting I Examtestview know the rules of adaptation, the police officer, did you block the street to protect the crime scene Yes, Sir, I think criminals will not park the Itexamplan car in that horizontal street, because it would be so easy to Examtestview be seen by the people in the apartment Examtestview over there.You see here and see Examtestview Eleven Street seems to be the better choice. Well, I would say that this is a wrong choice, with no footprints 70-483 Dumps found on one side of the railroad tracks, but Examtestview 70-483 Dumps two sets of footprints directed at the staircase leading to 37th Street. I took 37th Street Blocked. This is my point, they all need to be closed, and theres the train, he asked. Why did you stop it So, sir, I think the train could cross the scene. Will destroy the testimony, or anything else. Examtestview What other, police officer I can not explain it clearly, sir. I mean What about Newark airport Yes, sir. She looked back Rescue. There are some police nearby, but they are busy, no one noticed the lectures here. What happened to Newark Airport Why did not you shut it up Austrian, great, so I was scolded. She tightened Itexamplan her lips just like Julia Roberts, 101 test trying to exercise restraint Sir, it looks like in my judgment Itexamplan 101 test The New York Highway Cisco 210-260 Dumps is also a good choice, along with the Jersey and Long Cisco 210-260 Dumps Island Itexamplan Expressways, and you can shut down Interstate 70 and block 101 test all the way to St. Louis, where criminals may escape. She bowed a little Head, and Pi Ruidi on the viewing. The two of them are 101 test about the same height, but his heel may be thicker. I got a bunch of cranky Itexamplan calls, he continued. Secretary of Ports, Office of the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Head of Conference He raised his head to the 70-483 Dumps Javets Conference Center in that direction We disrupted the process, a senators speech, and traffic in the entire Western District. Even Hurricane Eva has not 70-483 Dumps seen such a thorough end to the rail corridors of the Northeast Corridor. I just thought Piatti laughed. Shakes was such a beautiful woman – the sloshing up of the time before joining the police 70-483 Dumps academy, the signing Itexamplan model for the Itexamplan 70-483 Dumps Schadlel fashion 101 test house on Madison Avenue – so the police officer decided to forgive her. Shakespeare patrolman, he said, looking over her flat chest top with a bulky name tag. Give you 101 test an on-site Examtestview instructional lesson. Work on the crime scene should take into account the balance. 70-483 Dumps If we blockade the entire 101 test city after every homicide and Cisco 210-260 Dumps place all three million people in interrogation, thats fine, of course. But we can not Thats what I said, and its very Cisco 210-260 Dumps constructive and inspiring to you. To be honest, sir, Itexamplan she said bluntly Im moving away 70-483 Dumps from the patrol team and it officially takes effect from noon today. He nodded and smiled happily Well, theres nothing to say, but in the report, its important to say that it is your personal decision to stop the train and the enclosed streets. Yes, sir, She said carelessly Thats right.
