KILKENNY SUB AQUA CLUB is a recreational Diving and Snorkeling Club. We are affiliated to the Irish National Diving Organization, CFT, The Irish Underwater Council. CFT are under the umbrella of CMAS the world federation of SCUBA Diving. We have a membership of over 40 divers from those in basic Training to advanced Instructors.
Because we have our own Instructors we can do all our SCUBA training in house, lectures in our own clubhouse in Hebron Ind. Estate and in water training in Watershed pool. Then on the ocean or one of the inland lakes. Some of our experienced divers then join the Search and Recovery unit.
We dive all the year round in Irish waters. Local diving from shore is Hook Head, Club has 3 ocean going dive boats. Launch the boats in Dunmore East or Kilmore Quay and dive the reefs and wrecks off the South East Coast. Bank Holidays will find us in Cork/Kerry or up the west coast where there are many excellent dive locations staying in local B&B’s or Holiday Homes.
