The ocean covers 71% of the Earth’s surface. This means that if you are keen on adventure travel, you really have to dive every now and then. All jokes aside, there is a whole world with various kinds of animals, plants and amazingly beautiful colors, a whole new way of life waiting for you to discover it. Check out these incredible scuba diving blogs if you would like to learn more about it, fall in love with it or if you are already a professional who wants to stay in touch with people who love diving and share their under water experience with the world.
Photography-based scuba blogs
I personally agree that a photo is worth a thousand words. I prefer photography-based blogs, as seeing the flora, fauna, the general atmosphere, colors and the scenery are the very best triggers for me when I am deciding on my next diving location. I would recommend the Dive Photo Guide with their amazing high-quality photos. They constantly bring something new and surprising. My second favorite photo-blog is the Cold Water Diver. This is not the typical photo blog, but they have some great, well-organized galleries which helped me pick some of the best diving destinations I’ve been to. You will simply love the ease of their blogging and the often updated gallery.
Story-based scuba blogs
Even though I prefer the photo-based ones, every once in a while I get the urge to read some good diving stories. I often come across incredible testimonials and facts important for every diver. One of my favorite story-based blogs is the Underwater Times. They have two sections: Breaking News and Top Stories. I enjoy reading both of them as quality writers share updated information daily. Another good story-based blog I recommend is Deeper Blue. I love it because they are science-oriented. You can learn everything you need to know on the health benefits of diving, decompression sickness, avoiding tragedies while diving etc. They often recommend the best books on scuba diving as well. My third choice when it comes to the story-based ones is The Diving Blog. Their posts are not too long, I never get tired reading them and the concept resembles the tips and tricks, problem-solving blog format.
There are a few more blogs I sometimes visit, including the Bierman’s, Diver Daily and Divedozzi. You can read always interesting personal experience stories, funny stories, warnings, as well as tips on high-quality equipment.
