The 2017 Dive Rally season has begun. The IUC are delighted and proud to announce the beginning of the 2017 Dive Rally season. This year we have 5 rallies planned. Dive Rallies provide great opportunities for new and old divers and snorkelers to meet people from other clubs, share new experiences, see new dive sites and celebrate what’s great about our organisation…. the people in it!
We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Inbher Sceine Kerry SAC, Donegal Bay SAC, Hooks SAC , Grainne Uaile SAC and Co Longford Scubadivers for hosting this years set of rallies. These clubs put an enormous effort into organising people, boats and events to cater for every type of diver and snorkel diver. We hope you will support them by putting these dates into your diary and joining them on what’s sure to be great weekend of diving and craic!
Dive rallies are open to divers from other organisations once they can provide evidence of insurance and qualification.
