 Seal Dive Trips to Lundy Island  

For a bucket-list wildlife adventure, jump on-board a seal encounter dive trip to Lundy Island off the North Devon coast. Shallow and sheltered dive sites suitable for novice and experienced divers. We offer full equipment hire if required and trips are available for qualified and un-qualified divers.  
 
Our Lundy trips are perfect for a close encounter with the Grey Seals and the chance to spot Dolphins and Porpoise on the journey to and from. You may even see Sunfish and Basking Sharks during the summer months. 
Resident year-round the Grey Seals are inquisitive and playful and often choose to interact with divers. Whilst an encounter can never be guaranteed, we are yet to be disappointed! Pups are born between September and November, so later season trips can be a great time to go. Our Skippers are Lundy experts and know the best places to dive with the Seals and the seal sites are shallow (max depth 8-9m) and sheltered so suitable for all experience levels. If you are a diver and this isn’t on your bucket-list, it should be! 
 
New for 2019 for PADI AOW/Experienced Open Water Divers,  
Spider Crab Migration & Seals!  
Witness the spider crab migration and dive with Seals at Lundy Island.  
Between July and end of August, Spider Crabs can be seen in huge numbers moving across the ocean floor, as they visit the waters of North Devon to moult and mate. On this trip you get to do a drfit dive to see the Crabs and then a dive closer to shore to see the Seals. See Dates section below for trip dates. 
 
Lundy is a Marine Conservation Zone and ‘No Take’ zone so is a protected area and home to an aquarium’s worth of other stunning marine life. Have fun spotting the residents as you swim through atmospheric kelp forests and canyons. Depending on the time of year, you are likely to see Spider Crabs (July & August), Ballan Wrasse, Blennies, Gobies, plus Comb Jellies with their distinctive light display and Moon, Compass and Purple Jellyfish (Jelly season is June & early July). Lundy is also the most northerly home of cold water coral including the Pink Sea Fan and 5 species of Cup Coral.

Safety is Key  

Our trips take place on board Lundy Diving’s Obsession or Hi Ho Charter’s Shelly N. Both boats offer a passage to Lundy in around an hour and a quarter and are designed with divers in mind. Tanks can be tied down securely during the crossing and there’s space to stow kit directly under. A side door offers the perfect spot for a giant stride entry, and there’s a purpose built lift at the Stern to help you out of the water at the end of the dive. The Skipper and dive staff are first aid trained and there is O² and trained administrator on-board. 

Lundy Diver Testimonial  

 
“ I had an amazing day with Easy Divers- a smooth and fast ride over to Lundy, great kit, amazing to be in with the seals, in with these huge wild animals in their own home. They were as fascinated with us as we were with them. Beautiful black, grey, and white seals with huge black eyes, very playful, swimming up to us. Can't recommend this trip enough, a bucket list item! Great company, luxury boat, even got a beer on the boat home. Thanks Simon and Cath for a mind blowing day”. Lotte Lindenbaum, 19th July 2017
