North East Dive est 2003.
From our Moray Firth base in Banff, we offered PADI & BSAC Scuba training and then Rib diving along the Moray Firth Coastline from Rosehearty to Nairn. Including some fabulous wreck & scenic diving.
We then began to specialize in bespoke trips to the West Coast from Kyle of Lochalsh to Oban & the Clyde.
After over 10years Diving all around Scotland we took the decision in 2017 to move our base from North East Scotland to Kinlochberie, North West Scotland. This decision was not taken lightly as it means our 'commute' is nearly 400miles but we felt the diving offered around Kinlochbervie warranted it.
We purchased Keltic Lady in 2017 and undertook a complete refit ready for the 2018 season based at Kinlochbervie. Over the winter of 2018/2019 we installed an Onboard Compressor, along with numerous upgrades & modifications to further tailor her to Diving.
We have amassed a large number of dive sites around Kinlochbervie, but we are well aware due the remote location and general lack of diving in the area we know from experience there are so many more sites to explore and discover. Over the last two seasons we are delighted to see more divers venturing north and enjoying some of the delights Kinlochbervie has to offer.
Listed below are just a few sites and once I have some time over winter I will endeavour to add some more. 2019 saw us diving fewer unexplored sites, we tended to dive alot of the 'regular' sites . My aim this winter is to dive alot of the places we have have travelled over or past many times and just not had chance to 'pop' in for a dive. Also having spent alot of time with Jimmy McIntosh of Cape Wrath Charters and the local Fisherman we still have so many more sites to check out.
You really cant beat that feeling of dropping down into a dive site which has rarely or ever been dived. So many sites to get back to dive yet so many more to explore.
