Vobster Quay , Somerset ~ 10th May

Nine divers attended the Vobster day out and a good day was had by all. We managed a grand total of 3 dives at this well maintained dive site. The purpose of the visit was mainly for a check out dive for the guy`s that had new kit, ie ponies, dry suit`s, new reg`s and others that had recently passed their open water. The vis was very good at the start of the day[10m+] and to be fair still wasn`t bad at the end of the day after the hoardes of training divers had finished. We managed to get round all the submerged attraction`s.

The new air fill station was flat out all day with no probs giving very quick turn around, the shop was well stocked with essentials one diver bought a brand new set of fins £25 bargin! Food OK not brill, better to take own food and stop for a bite on the way home. On the whole a very enjoyable day`s diving.

Having been a muddy puddler last week, Vobster, NDAC and Wraysbury. I would put Vobster as number one, but you are right with the fry-ups, third place. The cheeseburger was still well received though and it did get feeling back into my hands.
Did you manage to find the tunnel? It took us two attempts, doh!
