 Seal Dive Trips to Lundy Island  

COVID-19 UPDATE:  
We are delighted to say that we can run our 2020 Lundy trips from 10th July, with new hygiene and social distancing measures in place. Information on all of this will be available before you book, so please contact us with any queries or to make a booking 
 
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 are suitable for novice and experienced divers. We offer guided diving and full equipment hire. See below for prices, trip dates and availability. 
 
Our Lundy dive 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 the Island. You may even see Sunfish and Basking Sharks during the summer months. We are the only operator to offer professional dive guides for your peace of mind and safety in the water, plus the option of full or partial equipment hire if required. 
 
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! 
 
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 (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.

 Dive Boats 

Our trips take place on-board Lundy Diving’s Obsession or Hi Ho Charter’s Shelly N. Both boats are designed with divers in mind. Obsession makes the crossing to Lundy in around 1 hour 15 minutes and Shelly N in around 1 hour 45 minutes, journey times vary depending on wind conditions and the tides. Tanks are tied down securely during the crossing and there’s space to stow kit directly under the benches. 
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 administrators 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.

Lundy Seals On Rocks North Devon
Easy Divers Lundy Seal Dive Trip
Easy Divers Group On Boat to Lundy

Qualified Diver Package Terms & Conditions For your own safety and enjoyment, the following terms and conditions apply to Lundy Dive Trips:-  

The Seal encounter dive trips are suitable for all experience levels and the minimum qualification is PADI Open Water or equivalent 
 
The Lundy crossing can be rough even on a good day, so this trip is not suitable for people who suffer from sea sickness 
 
The trip may be cancelled due to dangerous sea conditions in which case a full refund will be paid, but otherwise the trip will take place in all weathers 
 
Due to Covid 19 precautions, customers will not be able to seek shelter in the boat Wheelhouse during trips, so if rain is forecast you are advised to bring waterproof clothing 
 
We try whenever possible to give a minimum of 48 hours notice of cancellation, so please check guest house cancellation/refund policy when booking your accommodation 
 
We observe the Lundy Seals Code of Conduct and expect our customers to do the same or they will need to return to the boat (this will be covered in the dive briefing) 
 
If you have not dived in the last 12 months, a minimum of a pool refresher session is compulsory or an open water check dive (we can arrange this) 
 
If you have dived in the last 12 months and have less than 5 logged Open Water Dives, a minimum of a pool refresher session is compulsory unless your last open water dive was within 3 months of the trip date. We recommend an open water check dive if possible 
 
If you are joining us on a guided trip and wish to dive independently in a buddy pair, then please let us know. We will need to see evidence of your dive experience before we agree to your request 
 
If the dive staff are concerned about your safety in the water, we reserve the right to ask you to return to the boat at any time during the dives and you will not receive a refund 
 
If the main guided dive party is delayed by more than 10 minutes due to an issue you are experiencing, the Dive Supervisor will make every effort to help you, but after 10 minutes will surface with you and send you back to the boat. You will have the option to snorkel instead and will not receive a refund 
 
We use DIN tanks, so if you are using your own equipment and purely require tank hire, please check for compatibility or reserve 1 of our 2 DIN to Yoke Adaptors if necessary 
 
Maximum dive time is 1 hour per dive 
 
No diver will be able to take part without bringing a recognised Divers License evidencing a minimum qualification of PADI Open Water or equivalent and Log Book/Dive Computer showing evidence of date of last dive. If you have lost your Log Book and don't have a Dive Computer, a minimum of a pool refresher session is compulsory regardless of date of last dive or experience level 
 
You will be asked to complete a PADI Medical Form before you book, unless one has been completed with us in the last 12 months and nothing has changed. You will also need to complete and sign liability waivers before you join one of our trips 
 
If you need to answer yes to any of the questions on the PADI Medical Form, a doctor will need to sign you off as fit to dive. If this is the case please do not book yourself a place until you have received your sign-off and you must bring the signed off medical form on the day 
 
If you need to cancel, we can only offer you a refund (less a £15 admin fee) if we can fill the space. It is very likely that we can fill the space, but just so you are aware! We will be making an execption to this if you have Covid 19 symtoms, are self isolating due to exposure to the virus or if lockdown measures prevent you from joining us 
 
A 50% deposit is payable at the time of booking and the balance of payment is due one calendar month prior to departure. If we do not receive payment by then we reserve the right to offer your place to another customer 
 
The trip is for over 18s only unless accompanied by a parent/guardian (NB parent/guardian does not have to dive) in which case open to 12yrs + 
 
We offer dive equipment for hire in standard small, medium, large and extra large sizes. If you think you are of a non-standard size it is worth discussing this with us before you book your trip, so that we can make sure we have equipment that will fit 
 
You are welcome to use your own gear, but it is your responsibility to make sure that it is serviced in line with manufacturer's safety recommendations 
 
We offer 5mm full wetsuits with a 5mm shorty over the top, so a core warmth of 10mm, plus hood and gloves which is sufficient for UK waters in the summer season. Dry Suits are not available to hire but you are welcome to use your own if you wish, as long as you have logged a recognised Dry Suit Orientation and completed a minimum of 20 sea dives with 1 dry suit sea dive logged in the last 12 months 
 
If you loose or damage our rental equipment we will need to ask you for reimbursement for the replacement cost
