Our plans - Based on Dover High water times for Eastbourne Dives

2 wreck dive days

'High and East' (H+E) - 2 wreck dives in the 25-35m range with an approx 2 hour surface interval. Works well if the group keeps the 1st dive to 1 hour.

The same tide can also be used for a single wreck dive in the 25-50m range with a 2nd drift dive if wanted

'East and Low' (E+L) - 2 wreck dives with an approx 3-4 hour surface interval. My personal favourite day as it allows a big choice of wrecks and a reasonable length day.

For the best choce of wrecks your group should be happy to do a 1st dive with a seabed depth of around 40m, if you are limited to 35m or less please contact us and/or consider a High and East day

'Low and High' (L+H) - 2 wreck dives with and approx 4 hour surface interval . Our longest day at sea but plenty of time to relax between dives and maybe do a bit of fishing

Neap Tide low water 1 wreck dive days

'Low' (L) - With low water at midday we can only get 1 wreck dive, these are Neap and gives the chance for mid channel dives in the range 45-65m though it can be used to get a really good one shallower, 2nd dive as a drift usually possible

Spring Tide 1 wreck dive days with 1-2 hours slack

'High' (H) - With high water after midday we can only get 1 wreck dive, these are Springs and we take advantage of wrecks like Carlisle Castle, Wellpark, Skerryvore, Ella Sayer, Hohweg all approx 40m where 1-2 hours of slack can be enjoyed on these tides

 

'East' (E) - During winter months there are days when only the later Eastern area slack is during daylight hours, usually around midday and again typically a long slack, the best wrecks in this area lie in around 40m
