3 Dives per day pledge:

At Lochaline boat charters we know that divers come with us because they want to dive! To ensure that you get the most from your time with us we offer our guests the opportunity to do 3 dives per day at no extra cost (apart from air fills). Obviously not everyone wants to do 3 dives every day so we are happy to arrange with your group a dive profile that suits your group.

Where to dive from:

To give you an idea of the main areas that Lochaline Boat Charters operate from and the type of diving expected we have listed them below.

Lochaline- We believe that Lochaline is the best all round diving centre in the U.K. as well as being only 3 hours drive from Central Scotland it also offers the potential of year round diving in almost any weather, while other diving areas are being blown out the Sound of Mull offers refuge in all but the worst weather. Well known dive sites available from Lochaline which are included in our daily charter rates: Hispania, John Preston, Rondo, Meldon, Breda, Thesis, Shuna, Swan , Falls of Lora, The Garvellach Islands, Ardtornish Point, Pennygown Quarry, Tapti, Nevada, General Consul, Aurania, Ardmore Point, Auliston Point, Calve Island, Bo Fascadale, Danny's Buoy, Elizabeth Rock, Loch Sunart and the diving around the Isle of Muck.

Tobermory/ Salen- The main benefit in diving out of Tobermory is that it enables a slightly shorter journey to reach the dive sites North and West of the Sound of Mull. Well known dive sites available from Tobermory which are included in our daily charter rates: Hispania, John Preston, Rondo, Thesis, Shuna, Swan , Ardtornish Point, Pennygown Quarry, Tapti, Nevada, General Consul, Aurania, Ardmore Point, Auliston Point, Calve Island, Bo Fascadale,Danny's Buoy, Elizabeth Rock, Loch Sunart and the diving around the Isle of Muck. (should you wish to base yourself in Tobermory we are happy to pick up your group and equipment in Lochaline and take you to Tobermory and take you back at the end of your trip, this will provide a major saving as you will not have the expense of ferry fares)

Oban- Oban has long been recognised as one of the main dive centres on the West of Scotland, one of its main benefits is the relatively short distance to Central Scotland, however this is rapidly offset if you choose to dive the sites in the Northern end of the Sound of Mull (North of Lochaline) Well known dive sites available from Oban which are included in our daily charter rates. Hispania, John Preston, Breda,Falls of Lora,Meldon,Rondo, Thesis, Shuna, Swan , Ardtornish Point, Pennygown Quarry, Calve Island,The Garvellach Islands.

In addition to the above locations we are happy to discuss with you other locations and diving requirements.
