These guides are published only after I have done a number of dives so feel reasonably confident in telling you a little about the sites.

These are meant to act as a guide and not a gospel so please if you don't see octopus in an area don't blame me!!!

So feel free to download and comment as you see fit!

The last shore dive at Beadnell and a nice site with a couple of dive options, one for newbies and one for the slightly more adventurous!

Knacker Hole at Beadnell

A good small stuff dive, with a very short walk and easy access. It can be a bit busy during warm weather with open water training!!!

HMS Scylla

This is a 'deep south' dive that I have done on a regular basis so thought that it was time to add some notes to my expanding list of dive guides. The reef that was HMS Scylla is an excellent dive offering opportunities from easy bimbles over the deck to more technical penetration diving, there really is something for nearly everyone but this does mean it can be busy in the summer.

Cowshill Quarry

!!This is a preliminary guide only and will be updated!!

Sometimes it is necessary to do some freshwater dives to check your kit configuration or carry out some training, travelling to Stoney Cove can be costly from the North East of England so perhaps this alternative undeveloped site in Weardale is an option?

South of the point at Beadnell

A short walk to a nice scenic dive over a series of mini-reefs. Best to dive with minimal swell to make entry and exit easy.....don't forget your cameras!
