With visibility improving all the time the Wednesday evening dives are a great way to spend an evening midweek. The water temperatures are starting to rise and marine life is getting more plentiful with even some very patient octopus appearing on dives off the south side of Dalkey Island.

No Image Found!

Diving Malinbeg the 2015 June bank holiday was something of an uncertainty in the previous week with horrendous weather forecast but having booked accommodation we were travelling and willing to take whatever the prevailing weather allowed. We were therefore pleasantly surprised to get two great dives off Carrigan Head on the Saturday before having to retreat to Malinbeg Bay to dive the stack on the Sunday. It was a relaxing weekends diving and thanks to Paul O’Hare, Aras Ghleann Cholm […]

Saltee Scuba Diving!

No Image Found!

Last weekend brought the first real taste of summer and Naas SAC took full advantage of it, diving the Saltee Islands off Kilmore Quay. Sun shine, great visibility and some very inquisitive seal pups made for very interesting dives. We dived the Lennox wreck on the south east side of the Great Saltee and after a relaxing lunch on the Great Saltee we dived the Conningmore Rock in the afternoon.

While weather and visibility have not been kind, we are managing to get mid week diving in Dublin Bay. Last evening was our third consecutive mid week dive and it gives us a great opportunity to get dived up and the new members invaluable training and experience. Last night we had the Queen Mary 2 cruise ship in town so we had a good look at her lines prior to the mid week dive.

Diving Castletownbere May 2015

No Image Found!

In the preceding days the 2015 May bank holiday diving was looking very bleak with high winds and monsoon rains forecast but Castletownbere proved a good choice for early season diving. It did not fail to deliver great diving in sheltered dive sites which allowed us to get the full 5 x dives planned for the weekend. Carrigavaddra, Lonehort Pt. and inside Ardnakinna Pt. supplied some great diving in a range of depths to 30m. While sea life may have […]

Oysterhaven is a location that NSAC have never visited previously and proved to be an excellent choice for the early season shallow dives. The three days of glorious sunshine certainly did not take from the weekend making it a memorable Easter Bank Holiday for the club.  Alice O’Sullivan at the helm of Naas 4 as we head out of Oysterhaven to dive the Sovereign Islands.
