Around the coast of Scotland, the water is fantastic!! Scotland's seas are full of many varieties of colourful life. From the delicate, sensitive Fan-worm to colourful Cuckoo Wrasse and Ballan Wrasse to wary lobsters and inquisitive Seals. There are the wrecks of Scapa Flow in the north covered now in marine life, the amazing submarine tunnels and gulleys around St. Abbs and Eyemouth in the south-east, the Moray Firth in the north-east with its whales and dolphins which you might be lucky enough to see, the rugged and fjord-like sea lochs on the west coast where you can nearly always dive regardless of the weather and then there are the Western Isles such as Jura, Skye, Mull, Coll, Tiree, Rhum, Eigg and Muck and finally but by no means least-St.Kilda. Take a look at the photos on the website and see what you have been missing and what you have to look forward to.
You've probably seen amazing underwater documentaries on the TV made by Sir David Attenborough, Paul Rose, Monti Halls, or if you are old enough, Jacques Cousteau and Hans & Lotte Hass films, and thought "I'd like to try that!" Well believe it or not, the waters around Scotland are full of colour and life. Now you have the chance to join in and see this colour and variety under the sea for yourself. Clydebank Sub Aqua Club will teach you to dive in a safe, controlled manner. You will learn all the skills necessary to enjoy exploring the underwater scenery around Scotland. Of course it doesn't end there. Having learned these skills you can explore other great diving areas of the World, such as the Caribbean Sea, the Maldives, the Mediterranean Sea, the Red Sea, the Far East and the Australian Great Barrier Reef plus many other exciting places.
Right, is an example of colourful and abundant life in Scottish waters.
