DIVE IN THE AQUARIUM TANK Let's Try A New Experience

If you want to show your family or friends how it feels to be underwater. If you are a qualified diver or even never tried scuba before...this is the chance for you.

Our aquarium tank is located at the Dive Academy Dive Centre "Seaworld Complex"  Lahinch, Co. Clare. There is only one aquarium tank in Ireland where divers can experience "the ocean environment" indoors. No waves, currents, wind or rain... Just quiet and peaceful so why not to try it?
