Poole Charter Boats Association (PCBA) Diving Charters
Poole and Swanage are excellent dive ports surrounded by wreck, drift, reef and scenic sites to test divers from novices to masters. Poole and Swanage have an excellent selection of coded dive boats for you to choose from, with a board selection of facilities and prices.
Drift and Reef DivingWe are lucky to have some really nice drift dives; on spring tides you can get water in the 12-16m range, ideal for a second dive, moving at up to 3.5kts. It's the nearest to flying underwater you can get, the closer you get you're nose to the bottom the faster is seems you're moving. If this sounds a bit much for you we can always tuck in a bit closer to the cliffs to get out of the main tide and make it a slow leisurely drift dive.
We recommend that you use a red SMB and that it is used from the start of a drift dive; it puts years on a skippers life waiting to see if divers will come up near where he thinks they should be.
Under camera, nr. lighthouse, rock and boulders, quite colourful, very little current. It is ideal for new or novice divers as it is only in 8 metres of water. We dive to wreck such as the Fleur de Lys, Arfon and the following wrecks:
