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, the culminating event of their 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 all while raising money for a good cause.
This Santa scuba dive has raised over €8000 for the RNLI since 2014.
If your dive club wants to get involved, you can contact the organisers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those just curious to see the what 100 scuba diving Santas actually looks like, you’re very much invited to along, this is most definitely also a spectator sport, particularly with all the mulled wine, mince pies and craic that will be had on the day!
What Happening? A ton of Santas are going scuba diving in Sandycove, in aid of the RNLI. Visit their Facebook page here
Where & When? Sandycove, Dun Laoghaire from 11 am, Saturday 22nd December.
