Shropshire dive guide

Shropshire is a landlocked county in West Midlands and is bordered by Wales to the west. Most of the dive schools operating here offer full fledged diving courses at various levels with pool training. Certified divers take advantage to dive in neighbouring Wales and newly certified divers can also do their open water diving there.

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.

There are dive clubs whose members meet on a weekly basis or every fortnight. Sometimes diving classes are conducted at a minimum charge for the club members. During the summer club members usually gather around a lively barbeque and exchange views. These club gatherings are also used to plan outings to other parts of the UK or abroad. Some of the outings popular among the divers are mentionned below.

In summer Shropshire diving centers and clubs organise dives in North Wales on the Lyen Peninsular around Port Ysgaden. This is a little cove with gullies at the entrance. It's not deep, 10 metres (33 feet) but divers must watch out for the current running across the rock.

Pembroke in West Wales is also a popular outing as it offers excellent reefs and lots of wrecks. The marine life here is abundant and you can see seals and dolphins.
In Pembrokeshire's National Park and Skomer Island you may encounter colonies of seals. The dive sites are easily accessible and infact for many good dives one doesn't even need a boat. Several reefs and nice coral are within swimming distance.

Anglesey in has lots of pinnacles, drop offs and reefs but most of all it's famous for it's wrecks. The advantage of the wrecks here is that many of them are at depths not greater than 20 metres (65 feet) and are easily accessed by boat.

A famous wreck in the Welsh waters is the 'Slate Wreck' because for many divers it's just a pile of slate. It lies at Rubha Dearg in about 18 metres (59 feet) of water.
