Dalkey Scubadivers is a sports diving club with a long track record (nearly 40 years!) of safe and enjoyable diving. If you have a sense of fun and adventure, come join us! We have our own boat, an impressive high speed RIB, and we dive in Dublin Bay at least twice a week during the summer, though we have been known to dive every day of the week when the weather is good!

DSD is an active diving club, with approximately 50 members. Despite stiff competition from professional diving school businesses the club has, over the past 10 years, trained on average 30 people p.a. to scubadive. (Since its inception over 1000 people have been taught to dive by Dalkey Scubadivers, thanks in no small part to its founders Shane and Ollie Gray, now of Scubadive West, Galway). Club members have also given their time to help novice divers advance their diving, rescue and boat handling skills.
