About This Boat

Our Dive Centre based just outside Oban is a perfect gateway and a logical start point for diving trips.

THE URCHIN is a twin jet powered catamaran capable of speeds of up to 20 knots and cruising at around 8 knots. Jet propulsion virtually eliminates the risk of propeller injury to divers. The Urchin employs two powerful BMW engines, ensuring redundancy in the unlikely event of failure.

Managed from the bridge, THE URCHIN is equipped with GPS, radar, VHF, echo sounder and phone. Full MSA and DOT certification with independent inspection ensure full compliance with our registration and insurance for 12 divers and 4 crew. Category 3 allows the Urchin to operate up to 20 miles from safe heaven and for night operations.

For passengers comfort seating in the enclosed saloon area with ample space in the under seat wet dive lockers. All your diving equipment has a wet and dry storage area.

The "head" or toilet system is to a good standard including a shower etc in the domestic style rather than marine. 

Boat crew usually start at around 0630hrs and prep the vessel for the dive trip. Food, fuel, water etc is preloaded in the clean down period the previous day with newspapers, milk etc loaded in the morning.
