 Marine Dimensions  

Welcome to Marine Dimensions, a social enterprise dedicated to marine environmental education, research and conservation.


Our mission is to enhance understanding and appreciation of marine biodiversity through education, research and community based participation.


We run an active environmental education programme, including school tours, marine biology courses and activities for kids. Our biologists (and sea creatures!) regularly visit schools and attend public events. We also run summer camps, wildlife tours and community based conservation projects.

The great Search for Mermaid's Purses is now in its seventh year! Click on Jay the Ray to find out more about our hunt for shark and ray eggcases!

This website has received kind support from the Heritage Council (local heritage grant) and Dunlaoghaire Rathdown Enterprise Board (Empower Scheme grant).
