The Pier, High Street, Swanage, Dorset, UK
More InformationSwanage, on the South Coast in Dorset, has much to offer, with its rolling green hills and Old Harry Rocks to one side of the Bay and Peveril Point and Ledges to the other.
Undoubtedly the main attraction for divers is Divers Down, Britain’s oldest dive school, established in 1958.
Swanage has always been a popular dive site for all standards of diver and this year Divers Down celebrates its 60th Anniversary.
Situated on the pier to the South of the town, Divers Down has an ideal location, with car and van parking, an air & nitrox filling station, dive boats and the underwater world directly beneath the Pier, with copious amounts of sealife attracted by the confines of the wooden pier framework.
There are a variety of other dives, shallow and deep, including many WW1 and WW2 wrecks which lie in deeper water outside the bay.
These include, Kyarra, Betsy Anna, Valentine Tanks, Aeolian Sky, Carantan, Firth Fisher, Venezuela, Hazlewood, Aparema, Avanti, Everleigh, Simla, Smyrna and many more.
Our Shop on Swanage Pier sells a large variety of equipment including Masks, Fins, Snorkels, Clips, Bags, Bungee, Hoods, Gloves, Boots, Reels, SMB's, Neck Seals, Wrists Seals, Glues and much, much more.
We carry out Commercial work for TV, film companies, the police, MOD and local authorities.
We also run regular educational trips for schools and other groups, during the summer months. Two of our boats are particularly suited to this and each boat takes a small group of 12 pupils plus one teacher. We can give informative talks on erosion, local landmarks and features etc. showing off the beauty of the Jurassic Coast around Old Harry Rocks and to the Peveril Lighthouse.
