Ho Ho Ho! The biggest and best Scuba Santa diving event is back for another festive helping of charity fundraising and belly laughs! Once again we'll be strapping on our fluffy white beards and squeezing into poorly-fitting Santa suits to hit the water en masse in an effort to raise money for two very deserving charities!
Ho Ho Ho! We're delighted to announce that Vobster Santas is back for another bumper bag of festive diving fun! To start your festive season in style, we'll be hosting a very special yuletide dive session open to all - members and non-members alike. Grab your fluffy beards, folks - things are gonna get jolly!

Vobster Santas is all about getting together for some festive diving fun and - of course - raising some serious cash for charity! Once again, we're aiming to raise money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance by encouraging each and every one of you to get sponsored. Both charities are very close to our hearts here at Vobster Quay so let's show them both just how much we value everything they do!

This year we'll be returning to our familiar mass dive format with all Santa divers hitting the water at 10:00am in one very large - and very festive - group! Gates will open at 7:30am followed by a dive brief at 09:30am so there will be plenty of time to get parked up, kitted up and ready to hit the water! Will we beat our record of 185 Santa divers all in the water at once? With your help, we know we can!

PLEASE NOTE: Full event information including a schedule of the day will be emailed to all participants shortly before the event.

Vobster Santas is all about having fun but it's important to remember why we're doing it - to raise bags of cash for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) and the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance.

We actively encourage each and every participant to get themselves sponsored for this worthy event. Through JustGiving donations, divers can invite their friends, family and work colleagues to sponsor them to take to the balmy waters of Vobster Quay dressed in their finest festive gear.

Since the events’ inception, Vobster’s Santa divers have helped to raise over £40,000 for these very worthy charities. Let's get that total even higher!

We're pleased to announce that our ever-popular Vobster Santas prize draw raffle is back! Once again we'll be raffling off a bumper selection of amazing prizes donated by some of the biggest names in diving!

All proceeds will be donated to the two very worthy charities that we're supporting this year - the RNLI and the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. So spread a little festive cheer and buy a sack-full of tickets! The more tickets you buy, the more chances you've got of bagging an amazing prize - and keep those fingers crossed that you're a winner!
