Exploring the USS Saratoga

If you are not a tec-diver I kindly suggest to stop here and move to more interesting stuff. You will only see dead boring 20 minutes of: endless, dark, narrow, radioactive, rusty gangways full of slit. If you are a […]

Carcharhinus amblyrhynchos in great masses. The term: “have you also seen the grey reef shark?” after the dive is now somehow spoiled. Enjoyable at the shark pass of the Bikini Atoll, but see for yourself!

Red Sea Wrecks

Yes! Wreck diving is one of the last somehow achievable activities on earth that may bring you into an Indiana Jones feeling. You travel through time and even on heavy dived wrecks as the Thistledorm you are allowed to kill […]
