Sport Diver | 50 Ways to Challenge Yourself


We’ve all had that moment . . . sitting around . . . we hear another diver tell a story that sparks something  . . . call it inspiration. Call it envy. Whatever it is, there’s no going back. Once this seed of a new adventure has been planned, we start connecting dots. Finding a good instructor for an advanced course. Looking for a buddy to share in an exotic expedition. Shopping for gear or airline ticket or both. Just as it should be. Because we didn’t come this far in our underwater journey to quit. The only way to go is forward. No matter how many dives you’ve logged or miles you’ve travelled, there’s always a way to improve your craft and fall in love with the sport all over again. We’ve chosen 50 wrecks, animal encounters, unique dives and training courses to reignite your passion.  (Brooke Morton, Sport Diver, January/February 2017)
