Manchester dive guide

Manchester is an inland county in north western England. There are several diving centers in Manchester and the diving activities are diversified. Dive training is available from beginner to advanced level with certification from renowned agencies on completion of the courses.

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. All the information provided is purely informative for our readers and shouldn't be used as is to plan your immersion.
The schools in Manchester cater for divers of all levels. Beginner, refresher , advanced and technical courses are available on request. Dive clubs are active in Manchester and are open to all. Most of them organise meetings for their members at weekends and discuss scuba diving events and outings.
As Manchester is landlocked trips to other parts of the UK are undertaken as weekend excursions or longer if it's far away. Overseas trips are a favourite for many divers because it gives them the possibility to dive in warmer waters
The Red Sea is very popular but many other destinations like The Caribbeans, Asia, South Africa etc...are on the events calendar in many dive clubs.

The Jackdaw Quarry on Capernwray Road is an inland dive site in neighbouring Lancashire that can be used by divers from Manchester for their open water training and also for leisure dives. It's an old lime quarry that's currently used for diving. It's not as deep as some of the other inland sites, 20 metres maximum (65 feet) but the facilities are very good. The visibility is 5 metres (15 feet). It makes a pretty interesting dive with the possibility to dive on the wreck of the HMS Podsnap.
Also in neighbouring Lancashire is the Eccleston Delph Quarry. It's an inland stone quarry that's used as a training site. The depths don't go beyond 22 metres (72 feet). The visibility isn't so good though, 2 metres (6 feet). This site is conveniently placed for Manchester divers as it's even closer than Capernwray. There is a sunken boat but since visibility is so low it is dark, you will need a torch. However, there are lines to the sunken objects to facilitate navigation.
