Happy Easter from the West!

      No Comments on Happy Easter from the West!

We hope you had a Happy Easter wherever you were over the holiday weekend.

At Scubadive West our visitors enjoyed superb diving conditions and blue skies in a cold Easterly wind.

Our first PADI Open Water Diver Course of 2013 got underway on Saturday morning with a brief orientation, module 1 classroom session and then straight into the our sheltered private cove for their first confined water scuba session.


The incredibly clear ocean combined with sunshine and a golden sandy seabed provided the ideal learning environment for these aquatic apprentices, all the while under the supervision of our Instructors Cillian and Colin, and our Divemaster trainees Martin and Sean.


For the more experienced divers we had a busy schedule of boat dives, exploring some great dive sites including Thany Beg,  Leacog Preacan, Doonee Beacon and the shipwreck ‘Julia T’.

With underwater visibility of 15 to 20 metres on the boat dives it was crystal clear that the West was the place to be over the weekend.

Welcome all

Whether recently qualified or the most experienced of divers we had something for everyone. Qualified but less experienced divers paired up and enjoyed our sheltered shore dive and explored the ’60 footer’ wreck, or took a guided boat dive with one of our Divemasters. Experienced deep divers explored the wall dives and wrecks.  The photograpers were happy too, with great natural light under water there were opportunities to stalk the shoaling pollock and Bib hoping to capture them on film,…. well, capture them on memory card really!
