Dive the Firth of Forth
In 2012 we started taking trips to The Isle of May and Bass Rock and these have proved very popular with many divers making return visits. Situated in the mouth of the Firth of Forth, Diving at The Isle of May and Bass Rock is very weather dependent but on a good day, provides some great diving.
The Isle of May has a wide range of dive sites situated below some stunning topside scenery. There are several shallow wrecks, open caves & caverns with swim-through tunnels to explore. It’s also likely that you’ll be joined on your dive by the playful seals.
The diving at Bass Rock has something for everybody with caves and swim-throughs. A sheer wall on the north side drops away to 40m+ and makes an interesting dive. Although the visibility can sometimes be poorer than the Isle of May, the sight and noise of the thousands of Gannets is quite impressive
The isle of May is an excellent wildlife reserve. As an option for lunch we can moor up and enjoy a packed lunch. When the tide suits, another option is to drop into the harbour at Anstruther for some fish and chips at the famous and award winning Anstruther Fish Bar.
These trips are for a full day with 3 dives with the boat leaving Eyemouth at 8.45 and returning around 18.00. We have extra tanks available for those needing them.
The total travel time is around 1.5 hours from Eyemouth and trips can be planned to suit your group, e.g. One dive at Bass Rock and Two at The Isle of May or One at Bass Rock, One at The Isle of May and one elsewhere.
Please discuss your ideas with Gary.
On a clear day, the Isle of May seems to float in the sea like a giant basking shark. This rocky island, with sheer cliffs, caves and gentle slopes, is home to thousands of grey seals and seabirds.
