Hey Steve,

Here's you questions:

"YD divers go to Anglesey a lot: what wrecks/sites do you dive? Where do you dive from? And what do you dive off?"

Hopefully the following will give you an idea of what we've got planned. Some of us have dived Anglesey previously in small groups, but this July we intend trying to repeat the 40+ divers who turned out for the last Anglesey dive weekend that was blown out. Any way, hope some of the following answers your questions.

Q: What wrecks/sites do you dive?

A: Well, apart from shore-diving from all around the island, here are some of the wrecks on offer from the following skippers:

In addition to these we also have over 30 offshore wrecks which have still not been positively identified, as well as more than 50 inshore wrecks in depths under 10m.  To give an indication of the vast choice available we have a group from Leeds who have been coming out with us once a month throughout the season for the past 5 years and have only dived the same wreck twice on 2 occasions!

Plus a shed-load of Scenic/Drift Diving from shore, hard-boat or RIB.

Please feel free to hook-up with us on any of our team or individual dive trips as posted in Planned Trips or Need a Buddy on this forum. You will all be welcome - Pennine Divers.

Hope this helps mate.

I am the Expeditions Officer for Ribble Valley SAC and as such I have tried to put all the wrecks I know onto a database, namely Excel, as everyone seems to have it!
It is still up and coming, but you can gladly have it
