Hi All  – I’m organising a trip to the Sound of Mull in Sept 2017 for Sports Divers and above. Accommodation will be at the cosy Movern Dive Lodge in Lochaline and diving is from a hard boat with lift, compressor, and ‘head’!

Itinerary is:

  • Thursday 31st August (Optional)
    • Travel to Dumbarton (early evening) and stay overnight at the Premier Inn (approx £40 pppn)
  • Friday 1st Sept (Optional)
    • Travel to Loch Creran for an optional shore dive (approx 10am) on the only known Serpulid reef in the northern hemisphere!
    • Travel onto Lochaline, Sound of Mull to the Movern dive lodge
  • Saturday 2nd Sept
    • Upto 3 dives from a hard boat (with lift) on the Sound of Mull
    • Evening Meal at the Lochaline Hotel
  • Sunday 3rd Sept
    • Upto 3 dives from a hard boat (with lift) on the Sound of Mull
  • Monday 4th Sept (optional)
    • Option to stay Sunday night if required as its a long journey home. I’d strongly recommend this, but it means an additional day off work!

Boat Charter is £840 divided equally between the group. Accommodation is £25 pppn (3 nights). Optionally, you may wish to add a further night at the Dumbarton Premier Inn on the way up – about £40. Based on 6 divers, your approx cost will be £250 plus additional money for air/travel/food/beer.

If you would like to register, then drop me an email or see me at the club.  I am also asking for £40 deposit to secure your place.


  • This trip is being shared with the Barnsley BSAC club
  • 6 spaces are currently available – first come, first served!!
  • The Sound of Mull is very rarely un-diveable due to its sheltered location
  • The water will be a balmy 14 degrees
  • Marine life, wrecks and reefs are all on offer – if we’re lucky, we may see basking sharks, octopus, dolphins or seals!!!
