Divers Down Swanage

An introduction to Divers Down


Swanage, on the South Coast in Dorset, has much to offer, with its rolling green hills to one side of the Bay and Peveril Point to the other.

View from the airBut undoubtedly the main attraction for divers is Divers Down, Britain’s oldest dive school, established in 1958.

Swanage has always been a popular dive site for all standards of diver and this year Divers Down celebrates its 56th Anniversary.

Nestling nicely on the pier to the South of the town, Divers Down has an ideal location, with the underwater world of wonder lying
directly beneath it, attracted by the confines of the wooden pier framework.

There are a variety of other dives including many wrecks which lie in deeper water outside the bay. 
These include, Kyarra, Betsy Anna, Valentine Tanks, Aeolian Sky, Carantan, Firth Fisher,
Venezuela, Hazlewood, Aparema, Avanti, Everleigh, Simla, Smyrna and many more.

School & Sightseeing Trips

We run regular educational trips for schools and other groups, during the summer months.  Two of our boats are particularly suited to this and each boat takes a small group of 12 pupils plus one teacher.  We can give informative talks on errosion, local landmarks and features etc.  showing off the beauty of the Jurassic Coast around  Old Harry Rocks and to the Peveril Lighthouse.

We have operated these trips for many years now and they are proving increasingly popular with all trips tailored to suit your requirements.
