Loch Fyne Dive Charters are based in Tarbert on the west coast of Scotland. Loch Fyne has stunning and unspoilt dive sites suitable for all interests and experience levels, including pinnacles, wrecks and reefs, in a range of depths from ~10m to 50m+
There is abundant marine life, giving plenty of scope for keen underwater photographers.
The sheltered waters of Loch Fyne mean there are usually good diving conditions and visibility all year round.
Seals are often found lazing around the rocks. Dolphins and basking sharks visit the area.
MV “Big Blue” is a 33' Bosscat, custom built dive boat, owned and skippered by Malcolm Goodchild. Malcolm is a qualified diver with many years of experience.
The boat is MCA category 2 licensed to carry 12 passengers and 2 crew and carries up to date electronics, navigational aids and medical oxygen.
The twin 250hp Ford engines give the boat speed, manoeuvrability and a good cruising range. The twin hulls make the boat very stable as well as providing ample deck space for kitting up. The specially designed seating provides plenty of storage for cylinders and personal equipment as well as having space to seat all 12 divers.
There is stern gate giving a simple step into the water and a dive lift, also at the stern, gives an easy way to return to the boat after your dive. There is also a toilet for added comfort.
