Tell us about your strangest dive!

Do you have a dive that stands out in your memory for its sheer weirdness?

We’re not necessarily talking ghost or horror stories here (though we’re certainly open to offers), but perhaps a dive that was carried out in unusual circumstances or weather conditions, or with unusual people behaving oddly. 

Your story might concern what you saw under water, something that went wrong or a totally unexpected occurrence. We reckon we all have at least one dive that sticks out not so much for its brilliance as for its bizarre nature. 

Dig back through your logbooks and let us know about your most peculiar dive in anything up to 250 words. Hi-res photos are welcome if applicable. Your tale could be featured in Diver magazine and, if it is particularly strange, you stand to win one of these Seac R2 torches!

With a recommended retail price of £77, the R2 is a compact 100m depth-rated dive-light in an aluminum housing. It is 143 mm long, weighs 256g, has an electro-magnetic switch and gives out 282 lumens. Four AAA rechargeable alkaline batteries give it a claimed 22-hour life. The prize is supplied by Seac’s UK distributor NeverRest.

Please email your story to Divernet at [email protected]. We can’t wait to read it!

Do you need to be fit to dive?

Adventurer, technical diver, stuntman, climber and all-round Action Man Andy Torbet knows a thing or two about keeping fit. Here he gives some basic advice to help us all get back into shape for when we can hit the water again.

Ship shape

The skipper promised me a wreck, so it must be down here somewhere. If the vis was better, I might even be able to see it.

Things fall apart

I can’t quite understand it. How did that happen? Every item of my scuba kit was fine when I put it away.

Free and squeezy

Freediving – it’s basically snorkelling with good PR. It involves holding your breath, often to the point of semi-suffocation. What’s so free about that?
