During those long days at work, when I just want to slip away and go diving, I found the next best thing!

Give this Google Earth site a try, it’s VERY cool:

https://www.google.com/maps/views/streetview/oceans?gl=us&hl=en-us

...Enjoy!

...The funniest thing happened while I was ’navigating’ through one of these Google Earth dives, I actually caught myself subconsciously controlling my breathing pattern, taking long slow breaths and long exhalations to get more bottom time out of my tank! ...then it hit, I’m sitting here at my desk!!! ...this is a cool & relaxing experience!

Pretty neat. Soon we’ll have live feeds on all major reefs!
