We run three boat dives per day from May 1st till the middle of August and then two dives per day till the end of September. There are also regular boat night dives each month or by group request. We specialise in taking out complete beginners and offer daily, our three hour try-a-dive program which consists of a short diving theory lesson followed by a boat trip to a lagoon and your first shallow water dive accompanied by your instructor.

 

For inexperienced divers and newly qualified divers we have many sheltered, colourful and fun dive sites in the 10 - 15 meter depth range, all within a ten minute boat ride. The scuba refresher course is also a great way to spend a day out diving from the boat with an instructor while brushing up on your diving skills.

 

Discover Scuba Special:

 

Scuba Diving in IrelandWe run three hour discover scuba sessions from the dive boat. After a short briefing from your instructor, you board the high speed dive boat and enjoy an exhilarating boat ride to an offshore island.  The boat ties up in an enclosed sheltered lagoon. Here you begin your dive in standing depth water by learning a few basic skills with the instructor.  Once these initial skills are learnt you spend approx. forty minutes diving in the lagoon.  There is an abundance of marine life in the lagoon for you to see such as hermit crabs, scallops, sea anemones, wrasse, dogfish, pipefish and much more.

 

After the dive you re-board the dive boat for the return trip,  the entire session lasts approx. three hours and is an ideal way to spend a morning, afternoon or evening.
