A perfect weekend for a group of UK divers. Bunkhouse accomodation superb and meals amazing (even catering for complicated dietary requirements with ease). A great, relaxed time out on the boat with Chris, brilliant diving - highlights included the St Chamond (Train wreck) and Syracusa wrecks, both with great viz and loads of life on them. We even had a brief display from dolphins on the surface and a glimpse of a sun fish. Will certainly be back next year!

Booked our trip a week in advance to our visit to newquay, we were kept in touch with by Claire who text us to tell us the sea was too rough for the trip, we rearranged for the next day however this one was also cancelled on Monday the boat trip went ahead and it was fantastic! We had beendown to the harbour a few times during the weekend and saw a few seals in the harbour on our trip we saw some more seals, lots of birds, some fish and the skipper pulled in some crab! It was a brilliant trip and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Would definitely recommend!

Plus points: Informative and friendly skipper. Plenty of bird life but be prepared that you are not guaranteed to see any dolphins or seals. Negatives: Check tides to see whether or not you have to go down or climb a lot of steps to the boat (not good with very young children or if not very mobile) and a fisherman's 'flat calm' can still be a good swell out in the bay! Also the hottest of days can be very cold and windy out at sea.

Thanks again to Chris and Annabelle for great weekends diving. The overall package is hard to beat, with an excellent an knowledgeable skipper.(ex-fisherman), who is always cheerful and upbeat. Nothing is too much trouble either. This guy really know his stuff and put us on some great wreck, even the afternoon drift dives were better than the norm. Good local wreck knowledge and understanding of divers needs. Large powerful boat with extra wide lift for those who carry stages.
B&B accomodation is in swiss style chalets in the garden of Chris's large spacious back garden. Immaculately clean, comfy and plenty of space for all. The communal lounge and breakfast room adjoins similarly excellent and clean bathroom facillities..
Annabelle provides a breakfast to die for, if you can eat that much before a dive! Loads of other facillities including coffee on tap 24-7, nibbles box, cheeseboard in the evenings etc. etc and a proper compressor room so all you need to do is bring your cylinders home every night. No dashing about after diving waiting for fills, they will all be waiting for you in the morning. What service!
And finally the whole place is fascinatingly decorated with all sorts of memorabilia from wrecks, historic books, posters and other articles of interest. What an outstading setup. I'll be back, no doubt about that. RS.

It was my first time to Newquay diving, and I would recommend not only the diving, but also Atlantic Diving.
The boat had a good amount of space for 9 rebreather and twinset divers, the skipper was helpful and knew all the wrecks suitable for us to dive.

Staying with Atlantic Diver I would recommend also,
Clean and tidy accommodation, set up for divers, to dry things! Also you can get air, nitrox and trimix as necessary.

Breakfast was a great choice, and we even got a snack early evening. Cheese & biscuits, Camembert and potatoes a favorite!
You can also get a last minute beer and snacks if needed.
Part of the deal was lunch- great sandwiches- no shortage of fillings, crisps and drink..

I'll be back! just when is my problem!
