We're Diving - Weymouth Hardboat Trip

Updated: Aug 14, 2020

Happy RSAC divers on the boat in Weymouth harbour

Report by David B.

Sun, sea, cruise ships, and dolphins - all in two day's of diving in Weymouth, 18-19 July.

Our first post-lockdown hardboat trip aboard Wey Chieftain IV proved to be a huge success. On Saturday the sun was out (the Jurassic Coast is always subtropical!), diving was tremendous with 5 - 7 m visibility. There were 8 cruise ships parked in Weymouth Bay, including the Queen Mary 2, and the lucky RSAC divers were entertained by two friendly dolphins on the way back to harbour.

Maximum number rules meant that instead of the usual 12 divers on board, capacity was reduced to 4 + 2 crew. The social distancing measures on board were sensible and safe. Everyone on the trip certainly enjoyed their dives and the day out.

Sunday Weather was a lot worse than Saturday. Grey skies and some rain, but that didn't stop us having two great dives, the first on the James Fennel and the second a drift dive on the Aerials.
