Now I am back in Germany, the weather is better - but no more diving. I will drive diving in october for a weekend to the lake constance. I really enjoyed the week in Scapa flow - especially the friendlyness from both of you and once again thank you for the help. It has been a wonderful week.
Hi Leigh and Dougie|
Thank-you for a fantastic week up in Scapa. We all came back thoroughly exhausted which is always a sign of a good holiday! We had a really good snorkel with the seals in Farne aswell which really topped the week off nicely.
Thanks once again

Following our very successful dive trip with yourselves at Easter I am being inundated with requests for a return trip, however they want it to be a little warmer. It will be for a week again. Hope you are having a good season, look forward to hearing from you.
Just a quick email to thank you and Dougie for a great week, and to let you know that Nikki retrieved my regulator bag OK!
We thoroughly enjoyed the diving - particularly the Tabarka, and having the minibus to travel around in meant we had a great time exploring island - I'm waiting to see what my photos of Yesnaby are like!
Thanks again for a great week,
Hi Leigh & Dougie.|
Just a quick note to let you know we all had a great time on the recent trip. We think you have a great set up and wish you both continued success.
In the words of Arnold Swartzenigger.
I'll be back.
Dear Leigh & Dougie|
A short note to say thanks for last week. We had a most memorable time with our new Irish amigos. What a great bunch they were. I was sorry to leave and I look forward to returning in the future. It's a great setup you have there and enjoyed my time ashore as well as diving.
Regards to Robert, James & Marlene

After a real hard trip across scotland and England, Hagen and I arrived at 15.00 o’clock in Germany. We are totaly exhausted and and cannot stand anymore.
Ferry crossing was very hard, because we had to show a dutch group, that we are much better in drinking and making a good party.
Later more funny stuff, Greetings to Dougie, Robert, Marleen and of course James Brown, the godfather of soul.
well we all got home safely I finally got in at 04.00 Sunday morning. thank you for a brilliant week we hope to see you in 2 years time. ta for now ian|

Dear Leigh, Maureen (=Marlene?) and Dougie,|
thank you very much for the nice (diving) holidays in Stromness :-)))
For Marion and me it was a wonderful time!
I (Joerg) told Dougie that I will send the link of the report from Harald: http://www.taucher.net/redaktion/10/show.html?topic=7
We hope that we can stay again with you next year. Maybe again with the great Irish people.
Best wishes from Germany

Thanks for a wonderful week last week I was with the Swindon BSAC bunch
I think every body enjoyed themselves I know I did for the second time.
I am trying to get in touch with James he gave me his mobile no but after Friday night at the Ferrymen's I lost it and wondered if you could let me have it
Regards Bob ( ponytail)
We finally made it back to the Midlands after 14 hours of travelling. I think we'll fly next time !
Many thanks for making our week a good one, you even managed to organise the weather for us !
Please pass on our thanks to Robert and James for making the diving run smoothly. The John L is a great dive boat and I think Dougie made a good choice there !
Also thanks to Marlene for the big breakfasts every morning.
We look forward to coming up to see you all again.
Hi Leigh, hope you and the gang are well, thank everyone up there for making the holiday so fantastic, everything was so much better than we had expected, the accommodation was spotless and the breakfast bang on!!!! well done that woman. the boat is one of the best hard boats we have dived on and the crew really new their stuff. Dare i say we were proud to be on the John L.|
What dates are avaiable for next year?
Hope to here from you soon, Brian M....
Dear Leigh and Dougie,|
Many thanks for a most enjoyable trip last week! We all had a great time, and the diving was excellent.
I believe we're all home safely--haven't heard of any disasters, although Rupert, Matthew and a couple of others and I ended up travelling by land and sea to Inverness instead of taking a plane, which meant I got home at 11.30 p.m instead of 2.30 in the afternoon....
Please give our fond regards to Robert, James and Marlene, and we'll hope to see you all again in a couple of years!
All best wishes,
I just wanted to thank you, Dougie, Robert, James and Marlene for the brilliant week's holiday we had.
We all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Robert is a great skipper - gets that boat positioned exactly right!!
James was magic too, taking the weight of the tanks off our backs as we climbed the ladder. We've got too used to that - we'll be looking for it every time we're on a boat now, but we're probably living in dreamland!!
Please tell Marlene we really appreciated her company in the mornings, and her breakfasts!
The use of the minibus was also brilliant. We had some great sight-seeing, and it was so handy.
All in all, we had a great time and we hope to be back in another couple of years!
Helen & Gavin MacLean, and on behalf of Darren, John and Dave Leckie.
Just a quick note to say A BIG THANKS from Sara and myself for all the origanising that you had to do get the boats and accom organised for the 20 of us this year.
Every one enjoyed themselves and we had a great weeks diving.
We are putting together a small video and will probably send you a copy when it's done
I shall be pushing some new faces to organise the next Scapa run about time I had a rest
