    I will be diving in the UK again when we are out of lockdown. Why not have a go at UK diving until travel is a bit easier?

    I've got a week booked in June to Baltimore West Cork.

    Travel by car / ferry so no flights involved and in the common travel area there are less restrictions.

    I just have to work out how to transit Wales.

    Baltimore is good. The Kowloon Bridge (biggest wreck in Europe) and U260 are both dives close to shore.

    As it is on the South Coast, vis is not as good as it gets on the North Coast or West Coast. There are very limited sheltered options from Balimore as well if the weather goes shite but it is a nice part of the world ... even if it is in Cork
    Remember anything you read on the internet was probably written by some guy sitting at home in his underpants! Including this !!

    I spent a whole dive inside the hold of the Kowloon bridge once, thinking I was going along the outside edge. It was a bit short on life.

    Why not aim for some shore dives before then? No need to book anything, so you can go whenever restrictions allow. We'll be doing the South coast in spring.

    Note to self. Avoid the south coast during spring time.

    Kowloon Bridge (294x44m 89,000 GT) is smaller than the Haven (344x51m 234,000 DWT) ... thus not the biggest ship in Europe.

    Funny , I thought it was the biggest. Things you learn. I’ve spent quite a bit of time swimming around a hold as well.
