If you've got a lust for rust, the Farne Islands is a perfect place to go wreck diving! It's a tricky area for shipping and unfortunately for their captains (but brilliant for us!) there's lots of wrecks littered around the islands.

The most popular wreck is the Somali. The 459ft, 6810 tonne passenger/cargo steamer was headed for Hong Kong in 1941. It was bombed by a German Heinkel 111 just off Blyth and continued north under tow as the crew struggled to contain the fire on board.  As the fire got worse, the trawler towing it rescued all the crew and set the Somali to drift. A salvage crew came aboard with the idea to save the boat by breaching it, but a huge explosion broke the boat in two. Red hot coins from it's cargo landed on Beadnell Beach and the Somali went down. It now lies off Beadnell, upright, in 30m of water.

 

Most of the Farne's wrecks lie in water deeper than 18m. To join our wreck dives, you need to be at least Advanced Open Water (30m) qualified with experience of deep UK diving.

If you've never dived in the UK before, we'll need to you to jump in our training tank for an Intro To UK Diving Workshop and then join us on a shore dive.

Intro To UK Diving Workshop

If cold water diving is something new to you, this is the perfect way to experience the colder temperatures of the North Sea - we keep our training tank cold for a reason! You'll wear all the exposure gear that you would in the sea including hoods, gloves and a thick semi dry wet suit. You'll also learn how this gear can slightly change the way you approach your skills compared to warmer waters.

Shore Diving

We're regularly out and about diving all over the Northumberland Coast. Join us for a dive to experience the North Sea from the shore before jumping in off a boat. You can more easily perfect your weighting and buoyancy plus you'll get used to the visibility. Our shore dives are teeming with life.

If you don't yet have all your diving equipment, you can rent a full set or individual items as you require.

The Fifth Point Equipment Rental

Full Kit Hire: £60.00 per day or £30.00 per dive

Extra Tank: £10.00

Other Individual Items: POA - please get in touch!

Get 2 days FREE equipment hire each month (plus many more benefits) with our Diver Subscription.

All our rental gear is wing and long hose configuration. If this is something new to you, we'll need you to jump in our training tank for an orientation before heading out to open water.

We don't hire equipment to divers who are doing their own thing. They must be joining us on one of our planned trips. 

We want you to have the best experience while you're diving with us, so let our experienced DM's and Instructors take care of you! You'll be diving in small groups, led by our fantastic team. They'll make sure you're happy, comfortable and having fun while showing you the best our dive sites have to offer.

 

If you are a Tech Diver, Divemaster or Instructor who'd like to explore in your own little buddy teams, let us know and we'll take care of all the logistics for you.

Join our Diver Subscription to get the best value diving - your equipment rental and guiding fees are included, so on trips like these, you only need to pay for your boat fee!

Check out all the benefits our members receive each month.
