Concrete Ship Wreck of Subic Bay Concrete Ship Wreck of Subic Bay
scubadivingnomad - 7 days 4 hours ago.
A Concrete ship of the same class as YON-146 The Concrete Ship Wreck of Subic Bay YON-146World War II saw many interesting ship building activities, Concrete Ship building being one of them. Since the large ship yards were turning out capital ships, the corn field ship yards created the LST. These ships yards got that nick name because many of them had been farms before the war. Far inland, they used the nations waterways to get the ships to the coast. All this ship building put a strain on the ...

Why I love Diving Subic Bay Philippines Why I love Diving Subic Bay Philippines
scubadivingnomad - 16 days 6 hours ago.
Why I love Diving Subic Bay Philippines I have been a scuba diver for about 18 years and for around 11 of those years, I have been living in Olongapo on the shores of Subic Bay Philippines. While I will admit it is not the best dive destination in the world, it is a outstanding place to come dive. Let me get out the negatives first, the visibility is not that great. It is however, good enough to explore the wrecks. The natural reefs are there but not heavily covered in coral. The biggest draw fo...
Diving the Way Captain Nemo Used to do It Diving the Way Captain Nemo Used to do It
Juha - 16 days 21 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...
Hey it is 2016 Hey it is 2016
scubadivingnomad - 1/13/2016 12:17 PM
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 ...

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.
