Facilities & Equipment
UCD Sub Aqua Club has an impressive range of facilities and equipment available to its members.
Boats The club has two Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs) which allow us to comfortably bring 16-18 divers to a dive site near to shore or 10-14 divers to sites up to 12 miles offshore. ‘Ad Astra‘ is our 6.5m Tornado RIB and ‘Barramundi’ is our 5.5m Ribcraft RIB.
The club uses the UCD 50m swimming pool for training and underwater hockey.
Weekly club dives are run from Dún Laoghiare Marina, where the club holds a year-round berth. This offers us an easily accessible location near to campus from where we can access many of the fantastic dive sites available in Dublin Bay. It also offers club members the added comfort of access to hot showers after diving and a warm changing room for changing out of wet wetgear.
