1   Dublin bay diving fee and weekends trip dive fee are only optional and applies to you if you attend the weekends away trip.

2  FREE diving (No dive fee) applies to you once you have paid the maximum dive fee (Combination of Dublin Bay dive fee and Weekends away dive fee) in your category.
For Example: if you are an under-grad student and have been to 3 club weekends away (3 x €20) and have paid your Dublin Bay diving fee of €40, then you have reach your maximum dive fee of€100 for the under-graduates. This means on your 4th weekend away you don’t have to pay any diving fee.
