This year the Grainne Uaile Sub Aqua Club (GUSAC) will be hosting the Western Regional Dive Weekend on Friday 18th July– Sunday 20th July centred in Killala, Co Mayo.
If you have not experienced diving in the crystal clear waters of Mayo before, then you’re in for a real treat. The spectacular rock formations, ship wrecks and the huge variety of marine life that exists ensures that there is something for everyone.
The reef walls from Killala to Downpatrick Head are numerous & are practically wallpapered with multicoloured patches of the different anemones that can be found here. From the daisy to the dahlia to the green snake locks anemone with its characteristics beautiful purple tips and the spectacular luscious plumose anemones with their extravagant white orange and green feeding plumes. But don’t take our word for it, come along and experience it for yourselves.
To ensure you get the most out of diving in Mayo, the Grainne Uaile club are willing and able to show and share our fabulous underwater terrain with clubs from around the country.
Killala will be the designated hub for the weekend activities as most dive excursions can go directly from Killala Pier or from proximities close by, depending on the weather reports for the weekend.
There will be boat spaces for individuals who can’t persuade their less enlightened club mates to come along for the weekend and we have several volunteers ready to go for a pint with any solo travellers so don’t be afraid of being excluded from the social activities either!
For clubs travelling with Boats, mooring and trailer parking facilities will be arranged close by.
An accommodation list is available whether you want to camp, book a B&B or rent a house for the weekend for the whole club.
