Crump Island, located approximately six miles west of the dive centre, was the location for an al fresco lunch on Saturday as part of our Day Trip. This unique surface interval provided the perfect opportunity to compare notes on the morning dive to Llachog Prahan, and to admire the panoramic views of Connemara. Crump Island is renowned for its historical significance, in particular as an early Christian site. After an hour exploring the island, divers travelled to our newly discovered site for their second dive. This dive site is in close proximity to Crump Island, and consists of a long wall running northwest. The ‘offshore’ nature of this site ensures a quantity and quality of marine life similar to that of Inis Turk, and Inis Boffin. Some species spotted were squat lobster, conger eel, bearded rockling, cuckoo wrasse and bib.
Rest assured that we will offer trips to this new dive site throughout the season, so do plan your trip out West!
