Diving

Lundy is recognised as a top UK diving destination. The island has a wide variety of dive sites from natural reefs and sea caves, submerged rocky pinnacles and shipwrecks, as well as fantastic seal diving.

Due to the physical situation of the island lying on a north-south orientation, generally one side of the island is more sheltered from the prevailing wind.  This means that many sites remain accessible despite moderate or inclement sea conditions. The “Guide to Lundy Marine Conservation Zone” specifically offers more detailed information on dive sites, marine life on Lundy and the islands tidal streams

Lundy is not a dive centre however there are a number of highly recommendable charter boat operators which travel to Lundy from the nearest ports and for those who stay overnight luggage transport can be arranged prior to your visit.  Due to Lundy’s location off shore, planning a diving holiday on Lundy requires good organisation and the island warden is available to offer advice on booking your dive trip.

It is essential that you complete and return a booking form at least a month prior to arriving at Lundy as it helps us accommodate your needs and also arrange for your cylinders to be filled.

To find out more about arranging dive holidays on Lundy please check out the Lundy Dive Information and Booking Form.
