Wild and Temperate Seas : New book, out Nov 25th
Updated: Oct 20
From highlands to islands, wrecks to reefs and caves, this new-style guide will whet your appetite for UK diving. These are over 50 personal favourites at some of the UK’s most popular underwater destinations. Dorset Dives author Will Appleyard and his team of experienced collaborators share their picks as they showcase our beautiful coastal locations.
Many of the dive sites featured in this new guide already appear regularly in avid UK divers’ log books. Others are visited by only those with local knowledge and some rarely see divers at all. All are special in some way to those who have contributed and evidence for those to whom the UK underwater is still a mystery that once you tame these wild and temperate seas there really are some magnificent experiences to be had.
As a wise man once said ‘There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong thermal protection’ (paraphrased). So, demist your mask and embrace the emerald, don your drysuit and conquer the cold... this book shows what incredible quality is waiting to be found if you just scratch the surface of UK diving.
