Add a Link
If you are a UK based individual, club or commercial organisation that
has a website related to UK diving or provides diving services, then
you are welcome to request a link on my link pages. Simply contact me
with your URL and some background information about your website. I
would point out that I favour website's dedicated to the UK diving
fraternity, that said I will consider some international website's as
they may still be of interest to British divers. I try to verify the
links on on a regular basis, however with so many links it is not always
so easy. I would ask that once your website is accepted that if you
change your website address or if it become unavailable that you let
me know so I can change it. Links which fail verification will be marked
as such and removed shortly thereafter.
Please follow the text links below to access the
remaining diver orientated website link pages.

source of information to both residents and visitors alike",

The most recent link I have is for a very informative
one covering shipwrecks in and around Robin Hoods Bay just to
the south of Whitby. I was surprised to find this website which
I did find by accident as it definitely complements my website,
I only wish I had found the website Shipwrecks of Robin Hood's
Rowan Cottage is a very well furnished holiday cottage,
one that might not be seen as a divers first choice. However for
those divers like myself that travel with family members this
is an ideal cottage situated just outside Whitby, it is a quiet
and pleasing retreat from the hustle and bustle of overcrowded
