Scuba diving is an exciting adventure sport that can literally open up a whole new world to you. Whether it’s observing the diverse underwater life, floating weightlessly through spectacular underwater landscapes of cliffs and ravines or exploring sunken shipwrecks, there really is something for everyone to enjoy.
While many people associate diving with tropical locations, Ireland is renowned for some of the most spectacular diving in the world. During the dive season we go on regular trips around Ireland that will give you the opportunity to experience everything Irish waters have to offer.
Internationally Recognized Diving Qualifications
The DCU Sub-Aqua Club was founded in 2001 and is part of the National Diving Federation “Comhairle Fó-Thuinn” (CFT or the Irish Underwater Council). This in turn is affiliated with, and operates under the guidelines of, the International Diving association “Confederation Mondiale Des Activities Subaquatiques” (CMAS). As such the diving qualifications you gain with us are internationally recognized and will enable you to dive anywhere in the world.
What Do We Offer
The DCU Sub Aqua Club provides a relaxed and supportive environment in which you can learn to Scuba dive. We provide training for all skill levels and abilities and you can learn at a relaxed pace with qualified CFT instructors. We provide a complete training package to both snorkelers and divers. You will train for your first diving qualification (CMAS 1 star qualification - Trainee Diver) over the autumn and winter months. This is done primarily in the pool, giving you the opportunity to build your skill and confidence in the water. You will also attend a series of lectures that will teach you diving theory. Come March you will be ready to take the plunge into the sea. As to how far you go beyond that.... well that is up to you!
Please Note: for the academic year of 2020/2021 we cannot guarantee completion of scuba dive training due to government guidelines and restrictions related to Covid-19. We are very much open to new members and hope to introduce you to the world of scuba diving if possible. As the year progresses we will try to analyse all options available to use to give you as much time in the sea as possible.
