A couple of years ago Ashbourne Sub Aqua Club launched a web site for divers to help them gather the information that they need when organising dive trips around the UK and Eire. The web site details as many of the dive charters, air stations, recompression chambers, launch and mooring points, tourist information offices etc. as we can find.
The web site is Plan Your Dive Trip
A later development was the inclusion of dive clubs - all agencies are included where I have sufficient information. If you want your club to be included then drop me a line with the following details - club name, contact details (email / website / facebook) where and when you meet (including postcode please), any restrictions to membership, which agency you run under (can be more than one).
If there are other businesses / organisations such as diver friendly bunk houses, B&Bs, launch points etc. that you use with please let us know - the more information there is for an area the better for everyone. These can be added through the website on the right hand side of the home page (Add Missing Entry) or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
The numbers for the site are now as follows:
Air only 185
Air + Nitrox 99
Boat Charters 200
Dive Clubs 533
Launch + Mooring 134
Launch only 172
Recompression chambers 29
Tourist Information 299
As always any errors / omissions please let me know - I am still short of accommodation that is diver friendly (this can include camp sites, bunkhouses, B&B, hotels etc) so please pass the details on.
If you have any comments about the web site and how it can be improved then please let us know - we want this web site to be the first place people go to when they are planning a dive trip.
