Scuba Diving in Kerry
Kerry has some of the finest diving in the world and beneath the Atlantic waves. There are such a lot of locations and so many ship wrecks, to go and discover. Scuba diving is a type of underwater diving by which a diver makes use of a scuba set to breathe underwater. Not like early diving, which relied exclusively on air pumped from the floor, scuba divers carry their own supply of respiration gasoline (normally compressed air), permitting them higher freedom than with an airline.
Located approximately 800m southwest of the Dingle Harbour entrance the Crow Rock provides a comprehensive range of diving in calm southwesterlies or strong northerlies. It is generally clearly visible being awash through all but the highest spring tides.

In the winter of 1989,while Colm O Sullivan,from Killarney, and I were on their way to a pool training night in Tralee, a journey they did most Wednesday nights to help out ,as they were both members of Tralee SAC at the time. I suggested to Colm that it was time to set up their own club as they had plenty of spectacular diving on their own doorstep in South Kerry.
