North Norfolk Divers Club was formed in 1980 by a group of divers including Rowley Nurse, our late chairman, with the aim of a group of divers going out to sea in North Norfolk to explore what was there. This has continued to be our aim, to explore and to enjoy the area, with a group of like-minded friends.
We aim to continue to train and explore and have found some new sites to enjoy. We are a small club presently, but always looking to grow and welcome new members into the fold. We have a range of ages, and skills from ocean diver to advanced and are happy to train and advance skills (members are from BSAC and PADI training backgrounds), and like every diver, we want to get out diving and enjoy the sites and see what is out there.
We have our own 6 metre rhib which is based at Wells-next-the-sea which allows us to go out for both short one tide trips and to opt for complete day trips across two tides, weather permitting. The rhib ‘Norfolk Hero’, is kitted out to take a maximum of 6 divers and a coxswain, we are sometimes split into two/three waves, but also can have a dedicated cox so we can have full slack dives, which is a real luxury. We have a range of dive sites from submarine Umpire to fishing boats and larger coasters and other sites, which are within range of one tide trips. The viz can be limited in this area, but can also be amazing on a good day, we can certainly expect a variety of conditions!
At Wells we have the luxury of parking, with toilets and a café nearby at the beach, this makes meeting up and the loading of the gear and changing ready to go easier, there is also an outdoor shower available to wash kit down before leaving.
