Diving the Way Captain Nemo Used to do It Diving the Way Captain Nemo Used to do It
Juha - 13 days 5 hours ago.
Diving is a great sport, no question about it. A way to exercise as well as relax. Sometimes though, the sport of it can get a bit too… sporty. Exhausting. Sometimes you might want the beauty and the relaxation of underwater without of the carrying of gear, getting the wet suit on and then off again, ear squeeze. All the hassle that comes with this great activity of diving that we all love so much. Without even getting your hair wet. Or maybe I’m just getting old. On Lanzarote, one of the Canary...

Aqwary Dive UpdateWOW, can you believe that 4% of 2016 is gone already? Like everyone, I made New Year’s Resolutions, well no mine are goals. A few are writing related. Looking over my writing for the last year, I saw a few shocking items. I wrote 4 ebooks but they were all ghost written. My own lifestyle book only had one new chapter completed. Only a few articles that I wrote are with my byline. So in 2016, I will “hire” myself to write. I will add me into my work schedule. A couple are ...

This holiday season is getting to me. I have gained so much fucking weight – four pounds – that I really wanted to go diving to at least get some exercise. Saturday was rough for me; I tried to get some things done and ended up helping a hot chick friend move. Why, I have […]...

Australian Cave Diving
PSD - 11/30/2015 6:24 AM
I came across an interesting and extremely macho article about Australian cave diving on Vice News. These caves are quite unique; as the article states: “Most caves elsewhere in the world were formed when streams carved holes into ancient fault lines, but South Australia was a little weirder. Photo By Vice News “The middle Australian […]...

So, last pier clean-up, I met this really hot chick who had just moved her from Boston; she had expressed interest about getting back into diving now that she had moved to Southern California. She has been certified since 2005. I gave her my phone and pager number and told her to call me when […]...

I am really low on cash; lobster season may not happen for me, so you may not want to hang out here for lobster reports.

History of the Spanish Armed Transport San Quintin History of the Spanish Armed Transport San Quintin
scubadivingnomad - 9/21/2015 5:31 AM
History of the Spanish Armed Transport San Quintin ex S/S AndesA BOILER OF THE SAN QUINTIN © 2015 CHARLES W. DAVIS JR. For decades, we have called the San Quintîn wreck a gun boat. Recently I started to try to find a better description of the San Quintîn to improve what we know and possibly find a photograph or one of a similar vessel. In the process, I found some items that did not fit with this wreck being a gun boat. Over time, I decided to start researching based just on the name and the rea...

Dive N Surf handled cleaning underneath the pier – they closed the pier to fishermen and provided support to […]...
