Sunday 10am dive Friar Island. Spectacular 35 metre deep wall dive, …..”excellent visibility with walls covered in life”… ” best dive this year”…
Sunday 2pm dive Streamstown Drift Dive. ….”wow”…”great fun” …”exhilerating!”
Driving through the spectacular Malthoa gap at Friar Island after a lovely 35 metre wall dive on Sunday morning. As we idled through at low tide, we observed the high water mark on the walls on each side of us, at almost 5 metres above sea level, it was a clear indication of the big tidal range and that our Streamstown Drift Dive in the afternoon would be a good one!
The stunning High Island came into view through the gap just after I took this photo, but I had to stop being a tourist and instead give full attention to to helming the boat through.
The Streamstown Drift dive on Sunday afternoon was as popular as ever with all 10 thrill seekers opting for the second dive.
Our next big event is the Equipment Test Weekend on 8th & 9th June with O’Three, SUUNTO, Fourth Element, Analox and Freedive Ireland.
