Dalkey Scubadivers is a sports diving club with a long track record (over 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!
