The weekend of 14 & 15th November will see Scubadive West transformed into a knowledge mecca.

Michael Gibbons, renowned archaeologist and expert on Connemara’s history, will run a complementary Maritime Archaeology workshop for those on Saturday 14th’s 10am and 2pm boat dives. Divers will be brought to local, historic sites of interest; including Bronze Age relics and a famine village.  These historic landmarks are on the islands you know and love for diving, Inis Deigil and Inis Barna included.  You will be placed ashore these islands, where Michael will deliver an interactive field trip of the historic treasures contained within. Following each field trip, a dive will take place on a nearby underwater site. This is an opportunity to open your mind to the wonders and secrets of our stunning coastline, plus avail of some excellent winter diving.

The evening of Saturday 14th November will see Cillian Gray sharing his expertise during a complementary “Dive Gear Care and Maintenance” workshop at the dive centre. 

Join us afterwards in The Bard’s Den pub in Letterfrack, where the day’s activities can be mulled over with some really great food and diving friends.

The excitement continues on Sunday 15th November with our Streamstown Drift Dive. A relatively early high tide will accommodate those of you with long trips back.  The dive will commence at 2pm, with a pre-dive briefing in the dive centre at midday.
