Diving from a RIB in the Magharee Islands.  This is cold water diving, a
bit more adventurous than what the Red Sea or Caribbean have to offer. 
Poor viz, no coral reefs and no wrecks mean working a bit harder to find
sealife.  Divers should possess strong diving skills, including use of a
compass, ability to deal with the occasional fast current and willingness
to seek out critters among the rocks, kelp and grass.  This is a good place
for novice divers to learn, lots of sandy patches to practice drills. 
Unless requested or on a PADI course, diving here is done with your buddy
only, not with a guide.  Lots of crabs and lobsters (but leave the many
lobster pots alone!).  Other fishes: dogfish, pollack and blennies for the
most part; conger eels.  Dive centre staff are very service-oriented, solid
divemaster procedures on the boat; accommodations and meals are good; lots
to see during surface interval time.  Plenty of pubs and resturants. 
Waterworld Dive Centre (www.waterworld.ie) is a bit remote; north of
Castlegregory on the Dingle Peninsula.  Divers not in the British Isles
should fly to Kerry International Airport and hire a car.
