Lancashire dive guide

Lancashire, located north west of England is bounded to the west by the Irish Sea. The Lancashire diving centers and clubs provide a lot of activities, dive training and certification courses. There are two inland dive sites which have Jackdaw Quarry and the Eccleston Delph Quarry both with interesting attractions.

Always dive according to your level of training. Never enter the water without checking with the local dive center for safety, additional information, level required for each dive site and without being accompanied by a professional.

There are scuba diving clubs in Lancashire whose members meet mostly once a week. During these get togethers they look at options for club outings to other parts of the UK or abroad and also enjoy a barbeque in the summer months.
The Red Sea being close is a quite popular destination especially for liveaboard trips.

The diving schools conduct scuba classes at various levels. Certification is available from different certification agencies. Most centers offer pool training and the students can then go to do their first open water dives in the quarry, in the coastal areas of the UK or even abroad.
