Hello all.

I'm Jamie, from the south Lakes, Cumbria, England. I've been freediving on and off for a few years due to struggling to find people to dive with. But after my girlfriend recently passed her AIDA 2, we've been getting out a bit more. She lives in Glasgow though, so we don't get to dive all that often.

I'm lucky enough to live only 15 minutes from Capernwray Dive Centre, which is great, and am aware that Steve Millard runs sessions there, however I'm yet to work out when they are. I sometimes dive in the lakes, but conditions can be very hit and miss.

I've seen there are other posts on here from people in my local area, but most are a few years old now. But if there's anyone still about, please get in touch!

Cheers, Jamie :)

Hi mate, i’m doing my AIDA 2 with Steve. I’m based in Barrow. Do you still dive?
Hi Goldie,

sorry, I've not been on here in a while. Saw you'd replied when I googled something this morning and this thread popped up.

Yes I'm still diving. There's a few of us dive fairly often in Capernwray Diving Centre near Carnforth. And as the season goes on we'll start diving a few of the Lakes. When is/was your AIDA 2?

Speaking of Barrow, I've recently started looking at spearfishing spots in Cumbria, there's a few spots around Walney island look like they might have potential.
