Explore the blue planet.
On a planet that is covered by the seas, why limit yourself to just the remaining 30%?
Diving since 2001.
Explore DCU's Sub-Aqua Club!
Created in 2001 by a handful of lecturers and students, our club has opened the world of diving to DCU students every year since.
The diving skills taught are to internationally recognized standards. All members can not only be taught to SCUBA dive safely but to plan, lead and rescue dives and divers.
The club goes on dive trips both in the Dublin area and across the country, year round. Whether it is a day trip to Lambay or a weekend at St Johns Point, it is always good craic.
All efforts made by DCU Sub-Aqua are driven by its members and their passion for diving in the sea.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I scuba dive straight away?
Nearly! It'd be totally unsafe and irresponsible of us to get you underwater straight away, so you'll undergo training first, and become qualified as a 1* Diver! This qualification translates globally too!
Do you guys snorkel too?
Definitely, we love snorkeling - In fact, you can solely snorkel in the club if you'd like! Additionally you can snorkel straight away!
What is underwater hockey?
Imagine regular hockey but with a splashy twist! Underwater hockey (UWH for the cool kids) is played at the bottom of a swimming pool with snorkels, fins, and a weighted puck. Teams of aquatic adventurers zoom around, trying to score goals in underwater trays. It's like combining snorkeling with a fun game of chase! Dive in, hold your breath, and join the splash-tastic action!
Additionally, see our page on the subject in the navigation bar above!
Can I organize a Snorkel?
You certainly can! Everyone is allowed to organize a snorkel, however we do require that you have some experience beforehand! Additionally, all organized water activities have to be ran through the Committee's Dive Officer too!
