An introduction to Divers Down

View from the air

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

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 60th Anniversary.

Nestling nicely on the pier to the South of the town, Divers Down has an ideal location, with parking for cars and vans on the Pier and the underwater world lying directly underneath the Pier with copious amounts of sealife attracted by the confines of the wooden pier framework.

There are a variety of other dives, deep and shallow including many WW1 and WW2 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.

Our Shop on Swanage Pier sells a large variety of equipment including Masks, Fins, Snorkels, Clips, Bags, Bungee, Hoods, Gloves, Boots, Reels, SMB's, Neck Seals, Wrists Seals, Glues and much, much more.

School & Sightseeing Trips

We run regular educational trips for schools and other groups, during the summer months.

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.
