Diving in Beautiful Dorset
From our Portland base in Dorset we look after divers from all over the world who want to experience the wonders of diving the Dorset coastline. We have a wealth of local knowledge and a fleet of three dedicated dive boats available for divers of all levels either through private charter or taking part on a fully maintained schedule that operates year round.
Dorset benefits from miles of coastline with a variety of different habitats from reefs to an abundance of historic shipwrecks. This variety and accessibility makes Dorset a paradise for divers at all levels and from our Portland base Scimitar diving is in the perfect location to exploit this natural bounty.
The area is probably most famous for the extensive variety of wreckage scattered around the coast. There are wrecks suitable for all levels of diving from the beginner to the most experienced technical divers and the wrecks represent every historic watercraft. Old sailing vessels with precious cargos to relics of the two World Wars there really is something for everyone.
