Halton Charters offers day-boat or live aboard charters to divers in Scapa Flow and beyond, mainly operating from Stromness. Built to withstand the worst of the weather for her former life as a trawler, the Halton is now a sturdy, capable dive boat. She is just short of 70ft in length and 17ft in width, so there is plenty of space for 12 divers to kit up and then to relax after the dive.
She was originally built in Denmark in 1973 in the distinctive Danish style. In the winter of 2002/3 she underwent a major conversion, moving the wheelhouse forward so as to allow space for a galley/saloon above deck whilst six twin berth cabins were fitted out below deck. Halton Charters is now able to offer full live-aboard charters in the Flow and further afield. Over the years the Halton has been as far south as Cairnryan, as west as Faroe, as far North as Trondheim and passed through Malin Head, the Hebrides, Moray Firth, Norway, Shetland and beyond.
