Being able to freedive down to a wreck and explore it is a great feeling and will certainly impress your non diving friends. Wrecks are not always the most accessible dive sites, with many requiring a boat to get to. There are however some wrecks located mere meters from the shore which are easily accessible to freedivers. Shore diving has the advantage of being able to rock up and dive when you want and for as long as you want. This article lists 15 wrecks that we ourselves have freedived or dived (in some cases both) which can be accessed from shore and are suitable for freediving.
Wrecks are eerie, mysterious and fascinating and being able to explore them is one of the best aspects of scuba diving. A great wreck to dive normally has at least one of the following features (if not all of them). Size, history, marine life and visibility. Huge wrecks with a significant historical background, abundant and diverse marine life in crystal clear water make the most memorable wreck dives. In this article we list ten incredible wrecks to dive in 2020.
A buoyancy control device (BCD) is an essential piece of equipment for scuba diving. They allow us to control our buoyancy in order to become neutrally buoyant in the water (not sinking and not floating up). This is an essential skill in scuba diving, not only from a safety perspective but also from an enjoyment point of view. The better you are at controlling your buoyancy, the less you will fin, resulting in you being more relaxed and consuming less air. It will also most likely improve you interactions underwater, as fish are easily scared by divers fining a lot. This article will look at the features that will help you to determine if a BCD is right for you.
A good diving mask is one of the most important factors that will determine your enjoyment in the water. Whether you are scuba diving, freediving or snorkeling, it is essential to have a mask that is comfortable and does not leak. Nothing is worse on a dive or snorkel than having water constantly leaking inside your mask, or a mask that causes pain. This article will look at the features that will help you to determine if a mask is right for you.
