Welcome to fireflys.org

At last the weather has settled, the wind has dropped and the visibility has improved making last weekends dives a real pleasure.

As and when we manage to get new pictures they will be added to the gallery's so check in every so often to see the new images.



The picture above shows the clarity of water in Dunmanus Bay Ireland as it was last weekend, all we need now is for the water temperature to rise a few degrees.

The ‘Green Water’ pages show pictures taken from our local area around the peninsulars of S/W Ireland in an area known as the 'Wild Atlantic Way' where much of our diving is done in Kenmare Bay, Bantry Bay and Dunmanus Bay. Here the topography changes from kelp lined valleys, walls covered with beautiful jewel anemones and sandy sea beds where rays etc can be found, the conditions are generally fairly cool with around 7 degrees C in April up to about 16 degrees C late summer, we consider anything above 5 meters visibility as good.


The ‘Blue Water’ pages contain pictures taken during our travels to ‘warmer’ seas where the visibility is generally far superior.

Where possible we have tried to ID the fish and critters, if you see we have any wrong or can identify any please drop us a line on the contacts page.

The ‘Other Pictures’ pages show a selection of pictures taken outside the world of diving, some can be seen as weird take a look and make your own mind up.
