Diving in Ireland, cold water
Diving is an extraordinary experience. It always brings a smile on my face when I go diving. Although in cold water it is COLDER! You can still enjoy it a lot if you prepare well. Experiencing cold water areas and diving in is not very different than warm water. However there are few points we need to be aware of.
In cold water we can find different life and other types of animals. Which is making it even more exciting. But also dangerous. We should be respectful in water and if we do not know the animal, better to stay on reasonable distance.
We need a different suits whether we go for dry suit, wet or semi wet suit, we might need warmer suits, a special warmers under or another suit with few more mm, that will give us this extra warm. Ask local divers what are their recommendations or ask friends what were they diving in and how was it. If you stay comfortable you will enjoy it more and for sure see more.
It is also important to know the deeper we go the easier and more dangerous it is to catch a free flow. We should practice this situations and know how to deal with them before we go.
Remember diving is fun, but it is even more fun if you stay safe, and be respectful.
