Chartistic – Art from Charts…

Nautical charts, that is! Chartistic’s mission is to capture your favourite piece of coastline and transform it into a stunning and unique piece of art just for you.

The sea and coastline evokes special memories and emotions in people, especially in those who make their living from it or use it for pleasure. Chartistic captures those memories and emotions by faithfully recreating the nautical chart of the area and presenting what lies above and beneath the waves in an innovative 3D form on wood. Any chart from any coast, anywhere, can be created just for you.

Each commission is carefully designed to capture all of the important features of your chosen section of coast. It is also possible to customise your chart with an inscription or to mark your special places such as your favourite dive site. Charts are created with laser-precision to faithfully reproduce the original paper chart with incredible detail. The final piece is then assembled by hand and professionally framed to produce a truly unique and stunning personalised piece of art that you just won’t find anywhere else.

Photographs do not do the charts justice and they have to be seen to be believed.

Don’t miss the chance to see for yourself at Dive Ireland International Expo 2019. Any orders arising out of the show will get the benefit of a 10% discount.

Emerald Diving Ireland to exhibit at the show

Learn to scuba dive at the National Aquatic Centre with Emerald Diving Ireland, Ireland’s first Scubapro Educational Association Member.

Emerald Diving Ireland is proud to announce its award as Ireland’s first Scubapro Educational Association Dive Centre – after passing the scuba manufacturing giant’s strict qualifications and standards for safety and equipment. SEA is Scubapro’s dive centre programme, in which each centre is “committed to providing quality diving experiences and is engaged in a partnership with Scubapro to ensure high-quality standards are constantly met”.

All SEA diving centres qualify for the status by offering a variety of choices and opportunities accessible to all prospective and current divers, enabling underwater enthusiasts to learn how to dive or discover new diving spots… or to just perfect those already top diving skills.

“The goal of each SEA centre and Instructor is that you are completely confident underwater and enjoy each dive, resurfacing with a smile”, says Scubapro.

SEA centres must fulfill specific safety qualifications, organisation and equipment standards set by Scubapro. They are committed and required to offer very recent Scubapro equipment, serviced at least annually, in order to maintain Scubapro’s high level of performance for relics and enjoyable diving experiences and time of the year.

Brian Herron, Emerald Diving Ireland Master scuba diver trainer, said: “The care of our diving equipment and being able to offer the best dive kit to our divers and students have always been a top priority. Becoming a Scubapro SEA centre is a great achievement and is just the next step as we try and make Emerald Diving Ireland the best centre to come scuba diving with in Ireland.”
