West Midlands dive guide

West Midlands is a county situated in western central England. As it is a landlocked county the diving activities are concentrated on classroom training, pool training and clubs.

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 schools in the West Midlands that conduct scuba diving courses at various levels and deliver certification from different agencies. Pool training is available but the open water dives are usually done in the inland dive sites like Stoney Cove in neighbouring Leicester and Dosthill quarry which is only 10 minutes away from Birmingham.
The Dosthill is an old granite quarry whose lake has a maximum depth of about 24 metres (78 feet). The granite bottom guarantees good visibility.

Stoney cove in neighbouring Leicester is a quarry with several layers at different depths going from 6 metres (20 feet) to 35 metres (115 feet) and is ideal for training dives. The visibility varies a lot and can be anything from 1-20 metres (3 - 65 feet).
There are many attractions on this site and some wrecks to explore like a bus, a helicopter and a boat.

In summer many clubs and dive centers arrange trips to other parts of England's coast as well as overseas. The Devon coast is not too far away and the diving is good. This therefore makes a popular week end outing. However, outings are not restricted to the close coastlines. Anglesey, Falmouth and Pembrokeshire are among some of the popular dive places for longer stays.
