North Yorkshire dive guide

North Yorkshire is located in North East England and bounded by the North Sea on the east. There are many easy dives in the North Sea for novices while the advanced divers will also find lots of dives to their taste.

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 diving centers in North Yorkshire have a wide choice of courses to offer from beginner to advanced level. Pool training is offered and in the winter months much of the training is done in the inland dive sites like The Blue Lagoon. Otherwise you can enjoy the nice diving the North Sea has to offer in summer like the Farne Islands where you can get the chance to dive with the Atlantic and Grey seal colony.

St. Abbs is also very easily accesible from North Yorkshire. St. Abbs is a voluntary marine reserve. The marine reserve is located in a place where waters from the Atlantic and the North Sea mix. This results in the presence of marine life from both cold and warm waters.

You can see the devonshire cup coral which is common on western shorea as well as the bolocera anemone and the wolf-fish which are primarily Arctic species. Carved walls, tunnels, archways and gullies are part of the wonderful underwater scenery that awaits you here. There's dense kelp and plenty of fish.

The Farne Islands has crystal clear waters and great diving. There are nice cliffs full of marine life and the wreckages of several vessels. You can dive with a colony of seals, the largest in the North Sea and do some great drift diving.
