I've only just started in this underwater photography malarky and haven't yet had any slide film developed.

Obviously I've very concerned about ruining my potential masterpieces - can anyone recommend a good place to get the slide developed and mounted in the UK?

I'm not sure I trust Snappy Snaps!! :lol:

If you dare send them through the post then Fuji processing labs do and excellent, clean job.

You can buy books of processing vouchers which equate to 3.95 per 36 exp roll for process and mount. Turn around is about 4-6 days.

I send all my Kodak film to Fuji :lol:

I agree with Paul - Fuji are excellent. Kodak on the other hand cannot be trusted in UK. On 2 occasions they have ruined critical assignment work of mine.

Just go to a quality lab near you, hopefully professional, or at least dedicated, not a drugstore or CostCo. I wouldn't be mailing film unless I had no alternative, it can sit in a hot mailbox for some time. Slide film is more sensitive than print film to temperature. Expect to pay around $8/roll, but sometimes they give quantity discounts.
