I don't think I need to explain why I prefer diving in warm water... do I?
|Diving on the Sligo Shipwreck in Lake Ontario|
The lake bottom is muddy and the ship is encased with zebra mussels and sediment Scuba diving on wrecks requires good buoyancy control and the ability to use the appropriate finning technique to avoid raising of the sediment which can reduce visibility to zero.
Seen in the photo above are 3 divers, one of which is maintaining an inverted position while examining the wheel. Which diver am I?
A Shipwreck is considered an archaeological site and must not be disturbed by divers. A lot can be learned from these historically significant shipwrecks. They represent a time when goods were moved primarily by these vessels locally and from great distances.
Have a wonderful today and tomorrow!
