LSAC club trip to Isle of Man Sept 2017

Last week seven LSAC divers of various grades - Ocean Divers to Advanced Divers took a short four day trip to the Isle of Man.

The weather was changeable but divers managed to dive sites such as Burroo, Sugarloaf Caves and The Puddle. The marine life was amazing with dogfish, conger eels, cuckoo wrasse, pollock and many many seals playing with the divers.

Thanks to Discover Diving in Port St Mary for fills and advice on suitable dives sites. Their local knowledge was a great help. Plans are hopefully in place for a return visit in 2018. Hope you enjoy (thanks to Tony Turley for the videos).
