Dorset Riviera Dive Trip

Dorset - Lulworth Dive Site

Dorset Riviera Dive Trip

This July we’re off to the simply tropical, Dorset Riviera for a long weekend of fabulous diving in some of the best areas that England’s south coast has to offer!

Friday 1st – Sunday 3rd July 2016

Based in the sunny seaside town of Weymouth, overlooking Portland with the Isle Of Wight somewhere out in the distance, we will be diving all that the area has to offer on Saturday and Sunday.

Dorset - Aerial View Portland

This Dorset trip is ideal for all levels of diver! With varying wreck dives that cater for all abilities and interest, coupled with cosy accommodation and a days shore diving at Lulworth Cove…we are sure there is something for everyone!



The trip will include two boat dives on the Saturday, in and around Portland Harbour, with unlimited Dives on the Sunday in the picturesque Lulworth Cove which, rightly so, sits in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Lulworth Cove is infamous in the diving world as a stunning dive site with a beautiful backdrop! Almost guaranteed visibility due to the narrow entrance to the cove, it makes for a real natural safe haven for marine life which means stunning dives all day long! Maximum depth of 9 meters and as many dives as you can squeeze in, relax in the sun and enjoy the very best diving that the British South Coast has to offer.

Trip total price is £245 per person and includes Accommodation in Weymouth with breakfast each day, Two boat dives in and around Portland and a day’s shore diving at Lulworth Cove (Travel, lunch, dinner and air fills are not included).
