Gemma and Ian chat to Rob Spray. Rob Spray and his partner Dawn Watson are coordinators of the Marine Conservation Society’s Seasearch project in East Anglia. Seasearch is a project for scuba divers and snorkellers who want to learn more and want to help protect the marine environment around the coasts of Britain and Ireland. All the courses are listed here; http://www.seasearch.org.uk/
Have a listen and be inspired to try some UK diving. Don’t forget to listen to Episode 72 when we talk to another Seasearch Volunteer, Kat Gerasimova, she now is running a course via a local dive centre, Christal Seas Scuba about shore diving.
Norfolk’s Twin Wreck Challenge – Seasearch East
By odd coincidence the 5 mile stretch of coast between Cley-next-the-sea and Weybourne, in North Norfolk, hosts two wrecks from the Great War within swimming distance of the shore.
North Norfolk’s chalk reef – 20 miles of dives!
Diving in Norfolk revolves around the tides. It’s the difference between a nice dive and horror stories of being carried off down the coast. You may find that your threshold for current is higher or lower, most divers prefer to dive at dead slack.
We have a fair few videos online too, some are scenic and there are lots of talks, site guides and snippets. You can browse through all of them… https://www.youtube.com/user/reallymadrob/videos
