Pat Spencer and Phil Darlington are running a single boat exploratory RHIB trip to Bridlington to dive a couple of wrecks in the 30-35m region, hopefully Ocean Liner MS Pilsudski. The wreck is around 35 miles from the launch site, a 2 ½ hr motor each way.
We are limiting it to a single boat of 6 divers. Because of the distance we have to travel the weight on board is an important factor trip. Due to the distance from support or assistance the trip is limited to Experienced Sports Dive Leader who have completed their depth progression. These are unconfirmed marks so we can’t guarantee the wreck is where we think it is or that we have slack water correct although we are reasonably confident about both. Time and Tide limit us to a single dive each day, if we make it out to MS Pilsudski it will be a long and busy day, expect early starts to catch the tide and 5:00pm – 6:00pm finishes.
It will be a long day offshore. Rhib toilet facilities will be a bucket with toilet seat fitted. You’ll need to take your own lunch and drinks.
Costs for the tow fees, boat fuel and tractor launch are expected to be circa £70 – £80 per diver for the weekend. If we don’t make it out to the MV Pilsudski the boat fuel costs would reduce. Accommodation will be reserved for an additional cost circa £75:00 (£37:50 per person per night) at The Lobster Pot – Marsden Inn Hotel, Bridlington, 15 miles from the launch site. Arriving Friday Night – Departing Sunday Morning. If the weather forecast or other factors mean we can’t get to MS Pilsudski we’ll choose alternative dive sites. We have marks for 130 wrecks in the Bridlington Bay including two submarines.
