Hi, as the university year is about to end, I'm about to return home to Orkney for the summer, is there anyone from Orkney who regularly dives that I could do some diving with, preferably at weekends?
Ping a PM to Helen & Hazel, Deep Baloo, there's plenty of others up that way as well, others will be able to advise or post on here.
There seems to be a group that live/work up there that go out every so often, the odd trip report turns up on here.
Worth passing your name and number to all the charter skippers, you may well find they get last minute dropouts or have spaces left over, many groups missing somebody at the last minute, and if you join the group at £x per day for a couple of days that might save somebody a few quid of lost money.
Welcome to YD
Plenty of divers and diving industry people on here from Orkney
If you want regular dives then there are a couple of options... 1 join the Kirkwall sub aqua club
2 get to know the stromness crowd and ask very nicely for dives from the boats when they arnt full. this sometimes works and other times not depending on how full the boats are.
Come say hello when you get back anyway
