WOMEN’S DIVE DAY 21st JULY
GIRL DIVE POWER! Further to our successful participation in this event last year we’ll be doing it again! We’ve always been a particularly girl friendly dive centre and we’re quite rightly proud of that. So ladies get a €15 discount per dive plus a complementary aperitif and gift from us and PADI. Please reserve in advance!
Further to the popularity of the end of season night dive programme last year we’re initially proposing four dates, there will be more if demand dictates! There is also the possibility to sign up for the PADI Night Diver Specialty meaning you make three of the four of these dives.
September 6th and 20th October 4th and 18th
END OF SEASON SOCIAL AND DIVE AGAINST DEBRIS 21st OCTOBER
An opportunity to come and protect the marine environment through a free clean up dive followed by a set menu at Gigi’s to mark the end of another season. Good fun guaranteed for all!
