We are very happy to announce that we have joined forces with local skipper Colin Cooter and will be offering dive boat charters this year. Colin has owned boats since he was 14 years old and has been a skipper working out of Selsey for most of his adult life, add to this the fact that he and most of his family are divers and i can't think of a more qualified person to run a dive boat.
Emma Jayne is a evolution 38 charter boat with an Invco NEF 420hp engine giving her a top speed of 16 knots making her more than capable of reaching all the local dive sites with ease.
Being a general purpose charter boat she doesn't have some of the bells and whistles (large kitting up benches and diver lifts) of some customised boats but that's why we will be restricting the group size to 6 divers per trip, this will give plenty of deck space to each diver.
Prices will be:-
Single Dive (weekday / evenings) - £45
Single Dive (weekend) - £53
Two Dive package (Hot drink / butty inc) - £88
As the skipper knows the tides and conditions we will be letting him plan the itinerary of each trip according to the tides and conditions however if anybody particularly wanted to dive a certain wreck I'm sure Colin can advise the best time and date for that site.
Sites will include (click link for more information):-
There is also a selection of dive sites between 20 and 35m for the more experienced divers.
As we have to book the boat as a whole I will be reserving a date then mail the details to everyone who has expressed an interest and also put them up on our Facebook places will be on a first come first served basis and payment will be required at the time of booking.
