A Clear-Eyed Look at Inland SCUBA Diving Participation in the U.S.A. A Clear-Eyed Look at Inland SCUBA Diving Participation in the U.S.A.
Airworks - 26 days 5 hours ago.
Several months ago, I received an email from a dive acquaintance who is a dive master and instructor, in response to one I previously sent, asking if she was still living in the area and had participated in any recent inland diving. Her response surprised me: “Hi Al, I am still in the area, but no, I have not been diving locally. I’m afraid that the local appeal is just no longer there for me. Stacey K.” Her response echoes an all too common attitude among many people when it comes to diving at ...

Marlies-Diveoclock - 12/07/2017 1:25 PM
Exactly one year after my intro to tech I finally took the chance to officially enter the world of technical diving with TDI. As I never had the interest of diving deep or with a lot of gear it was a different and wonderful experience. Doing a dive course with another dive organization as well as being the student instead of the instructor was even more exhilarating... diveoclock.com/blog/TDI_Advanced_Nitrox/...

ToiletsImagine you are enjoying a walk around Paris and find yourself needing a restroom. You do not really see anywhere nearby and a quick check on your map program shows the nearest fast food place is 2 kilometers or a mile away. The few places serving food and drinks near you look crowded and while there has to be one you do not spot a restroom. You keep walking and soon it becomes a little more important to find something. Across the street you spot a directional sign with “WC” on it. A wate...
