In 2014 Monty Halls, Andy Torbet, fourth element and SUUNTO launched five mini-expeditions to access remote dives in the British Isles. Each expedition consisted of a team of divers, weird and wonderful dive site, lots of ropes / trekking / initiative, and a genuine challenge.
Now in 2015, five more expeditions have been set! This time to explore the Great British Wildlife Spectacles. Lead by known wildlife photographers and videographers and marine biologists, these expeditions will be 'diving with a purpose', to capture footage and discover the charasmatic Brtish marine wildlife. Still the adventurous experience with camping and exploring, we'll be using RIBs for boat dives, discovering great shore dives.
There are five expeditions planned at present, each of four to five days duration. They will take place in May to September 2015. Please email us for exact details.
The cost varies from project to project, from a minimum of £695 to maximum of £895.
At present there are two in South West England, one on the Scottish border and two in Ireland. Check out the map to the right to explore the various projects.

Divers must provide their own dive kit and camping gear and travel to the meeting places for the expeditions. Nitrox not included and rebreather divers must bring their own sofnolime.
