Swimming With Sharks

Updated on February 13, 2015

Wreck Divers Without Fear

Here's to the people who strive to recover that which the ocean had swallowed. These brave souls are the wreck divers and investors who work hard to recover shipwrecks for historical reference and personal reward. They risk their lives within the deep dark cold shark infested waters to recover that which was considered lost to share their finds with the world.

Wreck Divers, Ghost Liners, and Sharks

Swimming With The SS Andrea Doria

"Scuba diving at a depth of 250 feet requires a certificate, and $7000 worth of training for five years is required just to be eligible to risk your life. Even so, plenty of people have lost their lives playing this game, whose central thrill seems to be that you have to get dozens of maneuvers right, every single time, or you've had it.

The Martini effect is probably a big part of it, too. Every fifty feet of depth gives a degree of narcosis equal to drinking one Martini, so a diver to the Andrea Doria operates as if he had drunk five Martinis.

Philadelphia Reflections is a blog written by a physician who has served his community for more than 'sixty years.' When you click on his blog link, you will find yourself on a musing about an acquaintance who conducts clinical trials of medical instruments at Boston Scientific and spends his time scuba diving on weekends. .

The Complete Guide To Wreck Diving

Swimming With Land Sharks

Wreck divers are usually hired by people interested in funding an adventure for both personal and historical purposes. When governments become involved, wreck diving ends up being a tax funded fiasco while artifacts and history corrode in the deep blue sea. What do you think about the situation?

Does history really just belong to a handful of bureaucrats, or is it a heritage that belongs to all of us?

      Don't like sharks - not the deep sea type or the land sharks!

      I only wish I were brave enough to do deep diving. I'm afraid I am a wimp in that regard, and only snorkel.... but I would LOVE to explore the depths and the treasures there - both natural and otherwise - one day.

      Ship wrecks and sharks fascinate me but I sure would not want to run into a shark. Super lens.
