Suffolk dive guide

Suffolk has a lot of diving activity being conducted through its many diving centers and clubs. The schools offer certification from various agencies recognised worldwide.

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 Suffolk are able to deliver training at various levels. The diving centers and clubs organise dive outings to both the UK and overseas. Club members meet every week and on these occasions members can choose among the options for excursions.

Inland dive sites are quite popular for Suffolk diving centers and clubs.
Gildenberg in Cambridgeshire
is a nice inland site. It's a lake that has been harbouring marine life since the brickworks closed down in 1945. The depth ranges from 1-22 metres (3-72 feet) and is among the best inland dive spots in the country.

Stoney Cove in Leicestershire is also one of the old favourites among divers here. It has several attractions among which are the Nautilus sub and the Stanegarth, the Wessex helicopter and the tug boat. There's also intereresting marine life on this site and it's specially adapted to cater for newly certified divers with the varying depths and training ledges.

The Monarch wreck is located in Felixstowe, Suffolk. It went down on 16th April 1945 after being torpedoed. She was on her way back to Felixstowe after repairing Suffolk-Holland cable. She is 30 metres (98 feet) long and upright although pretty broken up. You can see huge cable laying rollers at the site.

For wreck lovers a weekend trip to Plymouth makes diving on some great wrecks like James Eagan Layne and Scylla possible. There are also some really nice reefs dives here too. The Kent coastline which is pretty close to Suffolk can also be an option as it has lots of wrecks lying off it's shores.

Trips abroad are organised as well.
The Red Sea
is a liked destination due to its closeness and liveaboard diving is possible to most sites throughout the year. South Africa, the Caribbeans, Thailand and the Maldives are some of the places to which outings are organised.
