We are diving the WW1 Cruiser converted to Seaplane Carrier HMS Hermes on Mon 9 July. The wreck is inverted and very intact in a general max depth of 30m with the top at 22m.

A Video of our last dive on her is here:- Diving HMS Hermes

This dive has largely filled up off line following our last blown out attempt :(

Meet at Dover Marina at 0830 for a 0900 departure, we will be doing a 2nd wreck in the afternoon after a return to Dover for lunch. The cost of this top quality 2 wreck dive day is £40

If you would like a subs bench place jump in as we always get late space availability.

Nigel's was possibly up for grabs along with Doversharks if he could not get a fill, but i think Trebor is doing his fill now.

So if one will do i'll call Nigel, if you need the 2 then unless i get a call saying there was a problem at the compressor then its not available.

Dave took another group to the Hermes today (I think it was Low Viz's club) and they had a nice 6m or so of viz, we have better tides as well so maybe even better tomorrow :)

Thanks to all for an ace day! 2 great dives and a roller coaster ride on the way out and back on the 2nd dive! Hopefully see you all again soon.

Cheers,

Si

PS lots of firsts today too...

First dive out of Dover!
First solely YD gig!
First return to shot dive!
First time reeling off in anger!
First proper amount of penetration!
First proper usage of my new Advanced Nitrox and Deco Procedures skills Thanks Mark Powell for those skills! (Also used the bits of reeling technique you showed us too! Must practice more before Adv Wreck end of next month!!!!)
