Adventure Day Trips

Where do these boat diving trips take place?

Throughout the months of 2017 Scubadive West will run scuba diving day trips departing from Cleggan Pier and from Scubadive West. These day trips take place off our high speed dive boat, and travel to rarely visited, world-class dive sites off High & Friar Island, Inis Boffin, Caher Island and Crump Island. The day consists of two dives, with a stop for lunch in between; weather permitting this is often a picnic lunch on one of the islands.

Dive Sites we visit

Dive sites we visit on Cleggan departures include the renowned Spotted Rock off Inis Boffin; a sheer drop off to 47 metres and wall dives off both High & Friar Island with depths of 40+ metres attainable. Departures from Scubadive West will visit recently discovered dive sites off Crump Island at the edge of the Renvyle Peninsula, also the spectacular Caher Island which is dotted with early Christian crosses, a 7th Century Church and spectacular views of the Mayo and Connemara coastline.

A Little Bit of History

For each island visited, we will share some local history with divers. The islands off Connemara are renowned for their historical significance. Some sheltered the indomitable Granuaile, the original 'Pirate Queen', while others featured prominently in pre-Christian Ireland. We are often acompanied by Professor Michael Gibbons, Connemara's very own field archaeologist and keen scubadiver, (pictured above). He interprets the landscape and artefacts in his unique, entertaining and highly informative style!
