Trip Reports

Home  About  FAQ  Training  UK Diver  Dives  Reports  Links

We have a little 'tradition' on the UKRS group - when somebody has been diving it is customary to post a Trip Report giving a brief outline of their trip to the group. On these pages you will find a selection of the trip reports that have been posted in the past.

All of the reports here were originally posted to the uk.rec.scuba news group and are also available via the Google archives. My thanks to the original authors of these reports, I know I've asked most of you for permission to include them here, I will of course remove any report if asked to do so by the author.

Don't consider the reports here to be exhaustive - if you posted a report that you want included then email it to me as I've probably just forgotten that you posted it. If you post a report to the group please add a footnote as to whether you mind if we include it here as well. My intention is that these pages will grow to become a major source of information for UK divers, please contribute to make it become just that.
