    Dive-Tech have arranged another wreck expedition.

    This expedition is to Salcombe in South Devon, it's a 3 day trip from Monday 13th June to Wednesday 15th June

    The expeditions are designed to explore some of the best wrecks in a particular area. This isn't just a normal dive trip. Included in the expedition you get:

    - Safety/support diver on every dive
    - Decompression trapeze if required
    - Detailed briefing on each wreck
    - Escorted/guided wreck dives as required
    - Cylinder pick up and fill

    Courses can also be run during the expedition including Introduction to Technical Diving, TDI Basic Nitrox, TDI Advanced Nitrox, TDI Decompression Procedures, TDI Extended Range and Advanced Buoyancy control. One-on-one instructing on any aspect of your diving is also available.

    For more information on diving Salcombe take a look at
    http://www.divernet.com/travel/salc998.htm

    The focus of the expedition is to dive some of the best wrecks in the area. Totnes BSAC have a great site with many of the best wrecks.

    In particlar we will be aiming to dive wrecks like the Maine

    The Riversdale
    http://www.submerged.co.uk/riversdale.php

    and also the Medina (see Totnes BSAC site above).

    The boat we will be using is DIVETIME. DIVETIME is an OFFSHORE 125, huge deck space, plenty of room for kitting up and storage, room for all divers onboard in the wheel house, fridge and microwave on board. DIVETIME is equipped with all modern navigational aids, carries oxygen, has plenty of space for changing and has a toilet onboard. It also has a lift so getting back on board, even with twinsets and stages is easy.

    The cost is £175 per person. This includes all diving, safety/support, briefings and guiding. However it doesn't include travel to/from Salcombe, accomodation or gas. I can provide detals of accomodation.

    There are still a couple of spaces avalable on this trip if anyone wants to do some of the best wrecks along the SW coast of the UK.
