About Us

  “British Diving At It’s Best” 
 Set up by divers, for divers. 
At St Abbs Charters we pride ourselves on giving the best service we can. We believe safety and fun can work hand in hand and hope this comes across to our customers. We will always try to give our customers their  choice of dive sites (weather and tide permitting). And if the weather and conditions are just not going to enable us to get out then we do not charge the customer and will rebook or refund as appropriate.  
The Skipper
Barry as well as skippering the boat is also a keen diver. Diving since 1987 and instructing since 1993, Barry has completed thousands of dives in both the recreational and technical dive spheres. When not taking out or training divers, Barry tries to get in diving as much himself as possible to keep updated on the dive sites and marine life. This allows us to give an accurate and up to date briefing to those that want/ require it. 
Barry is an ASSET trained dive technician and has worked offshore and in the renewables sector with both diving and ROVs, he is also a member of the St Abbs Lifeboat crew.
Our Aim


Our aim is for every customer to leave us happy, whilst this is sometimes difficult due to weather, tides etc etc. we will endeavour to make every trip as enjoyable as possible. If the conditions are just not playing ball, then we would just rather reschedule the trip (whenever possible) and not take people out in a less than enjoyable or possibly unsafe environment.
