Wonderful day, I was new to fishing and Keith and Slim looked after me brilliantly! They made it a totally relaxed and chilled experience, not to mention great fun and a good laugh for all. Thank you both so very much, we will be back….beware!!! 😉


Don’t listen to just what we say, you can see for yourself what the Divers think of their experience on the Ruby J.

This wasn’t the first time my buddy and I have dived with the guys and hopefully will be far from the last.
We had a few challenges such as low vis and strong currents combined with the fact that I get seasick if I’m as much as shown a picture of a boat, but as always we were dropped exactly on the wreck and had a great first dive.
Our second dive, looking for scallops was in even worse vis but again we couldn’t have asked to be dropped in a better location – everyone had bags of the things.
It’s always a pleasure to be on the boat with Keith and Slim. They know their stuff, are always willing to answer questions about the boat, it’s gear or the general areas and it makes for a truly enjoyable time.
If you get the chance to, I can only recommend you do.
Oh and you get hotdogs between dives, too, if you can face them 😉


Despite diving in really challenging conditions with the late season plankton bloom and a bit of unfavourable wind on saturday, myself and the divers of Divers Online had a cracking weekend.

Slim really made the weekend as the diving wasn’t that great, but kept us all amused with his anecdotes and knowledge of the local sites. Having only ever dived West Bay out of Weymouth for the last 12 years, West Bay is a hidden gem and I am very much looking forward to our return trip in November.

Great time as usual only made possible by Slim. Shot right in the bow of the Moidart, even on springs timed to perfection no current at all! He even filleted my mackerel, cheers Slim.

Kelly Gibson – Polar Bear Diving

What a fantastic day!! I’m sure I speak on behalf of the rest of my group and send send a big tank you to Keith and Slim. This was my first time I have dived in British waters and thoroughly enjoyed it. Well organised, great company, fantastic boat and facilities. I would recommend West Bay Diving to anyone. Once again thanks guys for a great day.

Steve Hawkins

A thoroughly enjoyable weekend diving for our clubs first (and sure not to be last) trip with Keith and Slim. The weather was unbeatable – clear blue sky and glassy flat seas. The diving was great and the boat well equipped and spacious. A first class service.

Andy Thomas Rolls-Royce SAC

Awesome two days !!! Thank you Keith and Slim – you guys are not so bad as the people say:-D First time diving UK waters and was pleasantly surprised with it all. Loved being challenged and felt very safe. You know your tides, your sites and your business with the added bonus of being divers yourself. Will most certainly come again with the added perks of getting in with the locals with best places to get cobs at good prices. Us SAFFAS had a great time. Just need to win the world cup now. Love you two loads.

Tania and David Malan

Great couple of days guys and happy to recommend you to everyone looking for a great boat to dive from operated by good guys with excellent sense of humour – 2 days wasn’t enough and will be back. Thanks for looking after us.

Nigel, Swindon BSAC 46

Deep Thoughts Dive Club had a truly fantastic weekend diving with West Bay Divers. Keith& ‘Slim’ could not have done enough for us. Well equipped boat, great advise on dive sites – they genuinely want you to have a great time and don’t just take you out – but give you expert advise on where to dive & where. We all had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend and will not hesitate to book West Bay Divers again for future weekends be it as a club or individually. Thanks lads – & look forward to seeing you soon!

Emma Fellows (Deep Thoughts Dive Club)

An excellent day on Ruby J. Lovely well equip boat. They really want you to have a good days diving, give excellent advise on anticipated dive conditions & help dive planning, bang on the dive sites, & are keen to help with kiting up/dekitting without interfering – we’ll be back even though we’ve got a RIB!!!!!!!!

Keith and Neil, Fantastic weekends diving. Looking forward to seeing you again in 2010.
First class service from you all.

SAA Dive Master-Glos Tek SAC 1098

I was using Keith and Neil for the first time, they ensured my reputation would remain untarnished, maybe even improved slightly! From the onset nothing was to much trouble. They do “What it says on the can”, the shot was bang on the conning tower of the M2 and the Sawtooth Ledges didn’t disappoint either. Everyone agreed (Cheltenham Sub Aqua Club SAA 303) West Bay was a refreshing change to going out of Lyme Regis. A memorable days diving.

Garrath and the Cheltenham Sub Aqua Club

We have been diving with the boys since they used flyboy, then onto xtreme and now Ruby J. They are a great team and have become very good friends, who look after all our divers from novice to tech. Looking forward to another great year with you…..
So long as Keith remembers the pasties!!!

JK and the boyos from the valleys

Again, the Robin Hood Independent Dive Club had a brilliant weekend on the Ruby J in the very capable hands of Keith and Neil. A combination of wreck diving on the M2 and St.Dunstan, with a couple of scenic dives which enabled us to collect some scallops, made a very enjoyable weekend. Food and drink were provided as usual between dives and we were even presented with some freshly caught mackerel to take back to our caravans. The proximity of the caravan park to the harbour, fresh water equipment rinsing tank on the harbour side, nearby eating and drinking establishments also contributed to our annual trip.


Congratulations Keith on passing your RYA Yacht Master ®!
We all knew you would pass, Well Done!

Friends and Family

On behalf of my partner Clark and myself can I convey my thanks and for the way we were treated and looked after by the crew. Clark was not well during the dive and sat out …he was well looked after and provided with drinks. In light of the way he was treated and the fact we were well catered for I can only convey my thanks and I will be recommending you to all my dive buddies. I have made a reference to you via face book and recommended you as a dive charter to my own club –BSAC STROUD VALLEY and Mid week Divers.
Thank you once again for a really good day. (Part of Dive 90)

Andrea TT and Clark.

Cracking days diving yesterday. Huge thanks to Slim and Tony. See you again soon.
