The home of Irelands best Dive site and the ferry to the UNESCO heritage site Skellig Michael.

Ballinskelligs Watersports was the first Irish dive centre to operate totally independently and offer hardboat diving daily at affordable prices with no hidden extras. We operate the largest fleet of diving boats in Ireland.

We specialize in bringing visitiors to two of Irelands best Tourist attractions, the World class diving sites at Skellig Michael and the Island itself, which is a UNESCO world Heritage site.

The photos on the site are from the Skellig Michael and from our dives. Skellig Michael offers a wide variety of marine life and excellent visibility. The water temperature ranges from about 10°C in March to about 16°C in September when the water is at its warmest. Visibility is about 8 meters on bad days, about 15 meters on normal days and up to 40 meteres on good days You can expect sheer drop offs and walls encrusted with anemones together with copious quantities of life.

Hard and soft coral is plentiful but the most startling underwater experience is the sheer volume of life and the acres of every type of anenome resulting in spectacularly colourful diving.
