Oban 2018

Fancy a weekend away diving some of the best dive sites to be found in UK waters. Why not join us on one of our Oban weekend trips.

Dive the Sound of Mull which lies between the Isle of Mull and the Morven Peninsula of mainland Scotland and is a highly popular destination for UK divers. The reason for its popularity is the range of diving that is offered. There are many picturesque wrecks at shallow depths such as the Shuna and more demanding ones like the Rondo. There is an abundance of wrecks to dive in the area though diving isn’t restricted to wrecks as there are rocky outcrops, such as Calve Island, that serve as interesting wall dives with faulted ledges and overhangs.

The water is generally clear and green and there may be the potential for some drift diving. Launching from Oban the life is abundant and varied, with dogfish, Pollack, octopus, cuttlefish, wrasse, corals, crabs, nudibranchs, plumose anemones, seals and sea squirts being found. It has been known for porpoises and whales to be seen in the area. Above water there is plenty of attractive Scottish countryside, castles, boat trips and wildlife spotting to be done.

Fins will reserve accommodation at the The Regent Hotel, a beautiful art deco hotel, based on the esplanade of Oban, opposite the pier. It boasts dramatic views across the sea to the Isle of Mull. The hotel is a mixture of classic Victorian and art deco architecture and is an ideal base for exploring the west coast of Scotland.

With 83 rooms complete with modern facilities, 3 bars, as well as the Marine Restaurant, guests will enjoy a comfortable stay.

A minimum of Advanced open water is required for this trip. As with all Fins holidays if you would like to take the opportunity to complete your Advanced open water or indeed a specialty course such as Deep diver why not take the opportunity to gain the qualification under the guidance of a Fins instructor in what is arguably some of the best diving in UK waters.
