Jump right in and explore another world

Become an underwater explorer with Skin Deep and Scimitar Diving

Diving hero for Portland

There’s so much more to Portland Harbour and the adjacent coastline than what you see on the surface. Below the waves there’s a whole new world to explore, rich with shipwrecks and sea life. The Jurassic coastline has a wealth of vessels littering the seabed who were wrecked trying to round the infamous Portland Bill or driven ashore along Chesil Beach. Great Galleons and imposing warships lie in the depths and now provide habitats for fish and other marine life.  

Skin Deep Diving is our resident dive charter specialist with two dive charter boats in the marina, ‘Skin Deep’ and ‘Skin Deeper’, and a dedicated Dive Centre on-site to top up your tanks. Run by Ian Taylor, Skin Deep has everything you need for commercial and leisure diving. Visit Skin Deep Diving.

Scimitar Diving is based out of the marina on their dive charter boat, ‘Scimitar’. The perfect solution for dive clubs wanting somewhere different to explore or individual bookings, Nick Bentall and his team offer a safe, fun and comfortable diving experience. Choose from wreck or drift dives in a huge variety of locations around the Dorset coast. Visit Scimitar Diving.
