Christchurch Dive Boat Charters
Welcome to our Dive Boat Charter site, we are based and run out of Christchurch Harbour on the south coast.
The village of Mudeford has an intriguing history of smuggling over the centuries; the picturesque quay is still the focal point of the local fishing industry.
Its spectacular location with Christchurch Harbour on one side the open sea on the other makes it a very popular destination for Diving sailing and windsurfing.
Mudeford has a good range of accommodation places to eat and drink. There are quayside beachside cafes, restaurants pubs also bistros and traditional pubs specialising in seafood and local produce.
From Mudeford Quay you can catch a ferry for foot passengers and cyclists over to the Sandbank on the other side of the mouth of Christchurch Harbour. The glorious golden sandy beach feeling like you are on the continent.
