Bermuda is number one in the Caribbean and Atlantic for wreck
diving according to Scuba Diving Magazine's Reader's Choice Awards.
To quote writer Peter Benchley, "the entire history of
Bermuda can be documented by the hundreds of shipwrecks that lie in
the coral reefs that ring the islands."
We're not too shabby when it comes to snorkeling and beginners'
diving either. Scuba Diving Magazine's 5,000 readers say Bermuda is
number three in those two categories as well. Discover
Bermuda's underwater pleasures with one of the several dive
companies who provide single or double-tank dives at locations
throughout Bermuda's waters. Diving at night adds yet more
excitement to the thrills awaiting you below.
Helmet Diving is another way to see Bermuda's underwater world.
It has been an exciting part of Bermuda's water sports
activities for almost 60 years. The undersea walk has been imitated
in other islands, but it is best here in Bermuda. The helmet works
like a glass turned upside down and lead holds the open end down.
The air is cupped underneath as it simply rests on ones shoulders.
Your head stays dry and you can wear glasses or contacts while you
view the fascinating marine life in less than 15 feet of water. The
ability to walk and breathe are the only requirements to experience
our unique tropical reef ecosystem.
