DIVING IN SALCOMBE ON ATLANTIS
Phoenix Charters is a well-established charter business running trips out of the Salcombe Estuary, in the beautiful South Hams area in Devon.
Set in some of the most breath taking scenery in England, this friendly seaside town welcomes visitors from around the world. More often recognised as a yachting destination, the fabulous diving around the Salcombe coastline has wrecks ranging from 10-60m to suit all levels of diving.
Atlantis was our new boat in 2009; she is an Off Shore 105, 36? boat with a 400hp engine and is a fast and efficient boat for up to 10 people.
Facilities on board include: – large deck area, WC, seating for 4/5 in the wheel house, cooker and all important tea making facilities! O2 is also kept on board for any emergences.
On shore, The Phoenix Charters shop has a compressor providing air fills for your dives.
(nitrox is not available but if your club has a qualified blender we are able to provide O2 at an additional cost and have O2 clean air for your nitrox bottles).
Also the shop will be stocking basic dive kit for the summer (mask, fins, straps etc).
