No. 15 Divers Lodge

No 15 Divers Lodge is a hostel located in the heart of Stromness. The hostel is only about 50 meters from the harbor where the M/V Huskyan is moored, making it the perfect base for your Scapa Flow adventure. Here you cook your own food in the fine kitchen, or alternatively go out and eat at one of the restaurants in Stromness. 

No. 15 has six bedrooms (and also a "snoring room" if needed) and four bathrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped, and there is also a washing machine and dryer (detergent provided on site). Wifi is available throughout the house, and also the most important thing for divers: a charging station for cameras and lights. Each guest receives sheets and two bath towels. There is also a large living room with TV/DVD player where you can relax with the rest of the group after the day's diving.

Diving boat – M/Y Huskyan

M/Y Huskyan was built by and for divers in 2014 and 2015. It took 10 months to build and is the only boat in Orkney built specifically for diving. There is room for 16 divers to stay overnight, but mostly the boat is used for day trips out to the local wrecks. However, the beds are very much appreciated by tired divers who need a little nap between dives. 

Pre-ordered lunch is served in the boat's dining room, and all the food served is made from scratch with local ingredients and is usually very much appreciated by the diving guests.

The boat also has plenty of comfortable seating where you as a diver can rest between dives, look through the pictures from the previous dive or just hang out.
