Heard it on the radio - I think a rapid ascent by a diver ....

They dont muck about in those situations...

Nice pics of a nice day - obviously not for the diver

Our crew heard this too, dive boat Skua and diver had a possible bent, as Pete said.

As for motley crew(!) I will tell them to get there act together!

Another great day out on the water and lots of passengers on all of our trips (including Mat H and Miche), over the whole weekend. Hoping it continues tomorrow
Steve

It was an amazing trip!! thoroughly recommended if anyone is heading down to poole!!
Thanks to Steve, and crew made it informative as well.

Love the sound of those engines... 500 horses screaming, "give me mercy"

Saw 2 enormous dolphins playing 10 ft from our bow, we were sat stationary and up they came!!
