Local dive chartering with a difference; in 2023 our partners and friends over at the Community of Arran Seabed Trust (COAST) enabled dive chartering around Arran for a limited period outside of their normal research work.


For all charter enquires contact COAST directly - check out the citizen science days which can be booked online along with current availability: Find out more and make enquiry (

Dive Arran charter days will be announced on our social media channels.


While you're on Arran be sure to pop into the COAST Discovery centre in Lamlash and meet the team. Check out their website for more information:

Partner working

At Dive Arran we believe in the bigger picture - one that supports our local island community for the benefit of all and not just our own commercial gain. Together with our partners at COAST and Arran Active we're able to offer the opportunity for locals and visitors alike to scuba dive around Arran. Something that until now hasn't been possible! Visit our About page to find out how we all work together to provide diving here on the Isle of Arran.
