Scuba Videos

This video takes place in the Pacific on a VERY deep dive. The divers sound so strange because they have helium in their mix which does what we all know it to do - distort your voice. Under pressure this only increases. Helium is a less dense gas, and also less narcotic than nitrogen, making it ideal (and eventually required) for dives deeper than about 190 feet. Why is the water so cold? Well they were very deep, and may have hit some upwelling area along the island were very cold water (as cold as the mid to low 40s I would guess) was found. Now granted these guys were probably messing around, if they were really that cold, they would have probably left.

This video, by contrast, is a dive in one of the Finger Lakes of western NY. It seems that there were two dead bodies, but I do not have the history of this dive so I do not know if they expected to find dead people or were just on a survey and ran into them. One of the divers has CEC on his fins, which might be the name of an environmental consultant company.

    I always thought I would enjoy scuba diving, if not for:

    a) the dead bodies

    b) the clautrophobia of depth

    c) the fish, espcially if they touch me

    Actually for the most part, fish are great fun to watch. You are lucky if you see them. They are wild little animals, and obviously can be pretty. Sure the larger fish can be creepy as well, since they are not so timid and are curious - but fish do not eat people and I cant think of any fish that wont just get away from you if you strike out at them.

    Sharks, fish to some people (big argument), are a different story and I personally dont have much interest in large sharks. I like them, but dont want to be near them. Small sharks are very cute though.

    Since I was a child, I have wanted to wrestle a giant squid. Can scuba diving help me accomplish this goal?
