If you’ve dipped your feet into the world of ocean swimming during the lockdown and are looking to take it a step further, this could be the open house for you.
Dalkey Scuba Divers is hosting a “Try A Dive Night” on Sunday 5th December, which sounds perfect for anyone who has ever been curious about what lies beneath.
According to Stephen Frawley, member of Dalkey Scuba Diver,
Scuba diving in Ireland is very diverse, from playing in the shallows with seals on Dalkey Island to the remains of massive WWI and WWII battle cruisers off Donegal. With every form of rocky natural feature reflecting our rugged coastline beneath the waves.
By the way, he’s not kidding about playful seals.
Diving in Ireland is mainly done through a club system where each club has its own equipment, including boats and compressors to fill the tanks. Now that the restrictions allow, the divers at Dalkey Scuba are hosting an open house where potential divers can learn all there is to enjoy in the diving environment.
All equipment will be provided by the club, and diving practice sessions will take place in the swimming pools. You can learn about the world of diving from friendly and very experienced people in the controlled setting of a swimming pool, then you have the option of signing up for courses all winter that cover pool work, snorkels in the bay for fitness and lectures to learn all about diving.
Dalkey Scuba Divers offers courses for beginners as well as experienced divers looking to hone their skills, and encourages newbies to come and try. It is an accessible activity with members of a wide age range and ability working together. And in general, it looks like a nice club to join:
