As you can read from our club history page here, our Club has been founded way back in 1970. Last month, 46 years later, two of the founder members actually got in touch with us!

We will let their correspondence speak for itself...

Kindly note Proposed Legal Reform for Tourist Industry Consultation process (click here).

Pages 199 -218 of the Consultation Document refer to the the Recreational Diving Services Industry. The Club Committee will be discussing the implications for Calypso Sub-Aqua Club at the next committee meeting next Tuesday 8th March 2016.

Notable changes from current legislation include:

- A dive centre definition includes Police registered diving clubs (and thus all rules apply to them as well)
- Emphasis on Dive Centres Quality in Staff and Infrastructure, prohibition on unlicensed dive centres from advertising
- Reduction on definitions of technical equipment 
- Change in Structure of Fines (almost tenfold increase in maximum fine to almost €25k)
- Anyone over 60years old has to be medically certified to be fit to dive

 

Current Legislation and Relative pages of the consultation document are attached below.
