Diving in the UK can be done year round, with the proper thermal protection, and is truly astonishing, as is the diversity of marine life that these islands attract. The Cornish Coast in the south of the UK can provide chance encounters with Basking Sharks, whilst Scapa Flow, in the Orkney Islands off the coast of Scotland, is home to the purposefully sunk German fleet. Can’t get to the coast? Head to one of the many inland scuba destinations to discover the wonder of quarry diving.
