Divers Down Swanage

An introduction to Divers Down

We would like to reassure divers that although there are repairs being carried out to the Pier at the moment, there will be no work carried out at the weekends.

The work will not affect the dive boat operations and we have been assured that there will still be parking spaces for divers on the Pier.

Diving under the Pier will still be available.

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 and Peveril Point to the other.

But 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 next 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 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.

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.  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.
