It’s a weird and wonderful world folks!
In what has become a fantastic Christmas tradition, Sandycove in Dun Laoghaire will see around 100 scuba divers from all over the country gather for the annual Santa Scuba dive this Saturday.
Making this an especially unique event is that all divers will be kitted out in santa suits as they venture into the chilly winter water, all part of their excellent fundraising efforts for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), the charity that saves lives at sea.
For scuba divers this is the perfect opportunity to chalk off this now essential bucket list activity while raising money for a good cause.
This unique event has raised over €5000 for the RNLI since 2014
For those just curious to see the what 100 scuba diving santas actually looks like you’re very much invited to come along, this is most definitely a spectator sport, particularly with all the mulled wine, mince pies and craic that will be had on the day!
What’s happening? A sledload of santas are going scuba diving
Where & When? Sandycove, Dun Laoghaire at 12 pm Saturday 16th December
Why? In aid of the RNLI, and scuba divers are just a bit of a mad bunch as well!
