As some of you know, there is a Gig this September which will be spending sometime out of the flow to the Northern Isles.

At the moment, Garf and I are trying to work out gas logistics and would like to know which wrecks you must dive if you are going to the Northern Isles. We are looking at a maximum of 55m but anything in the region of 30-55m will be considered as first dives and upto 30m for second dives. We are looking at 2 days diving, so 4 dives total.

So, if you were going to dive in the Northern Isles, which wrecks must you see?

Regards

Thanks, but we are on OC and are going to be either T1 or TDI Normonxic Trimix qualified. However, with 35m viz I suppose you can see it quite nicely from 50m :)

Isn't it a protected wreck site? Not wanting to get into the poo over this :embarassed:

Thanks

lots of available stuff without putting the MODs nose out of joint

but actually most of the best trimix range stuff is slightly deeper.

I recommend you talk to Ian the Invincibles skipper as he has done many of the dives out there .....

Out of interest, are any of you DIR people doing any decent diving or are you just pissing about in the shallows, I would be interested to know that you are putting all that training and team work to good use.


Cheers
