Eric Terrill, an oceanographer at Scripps, explained that the remains of the aircraft are resting under 85 feet of water within a lagoon in the Pacific nation of Palau. It wasn’t until his team dove the wreck this April and May that they identified it as the Avenger they had been looking for. Read more

The Andrea Doria sunk almost exactly 60 years ago. This month, underwater exploration company OceanGate captured underwater images that show the ship’s decay.
Since the Andrea Doria sank off the coast of Nantucket in 1956, generations of divers have made the dangerous dive to the wreck, leading to the Andrea Doria’s moniker, the “Mount Everest of shipwrecks.” New underwater sonar imaging of the wreck, however, shows that it has deteriorated far more than previously imagined.

Fashion with Function For Divers
Like many who start scuba diving, I was lured in by the sirens of the sea, not knowing my life would forever change. I left my “Home” and became a very small fish in the enormous ocean.
While a designer in real life, I developed CoCoCheznaynay® SecretAgent of Truth & Style™ as a branding vehicle and a truth-seeking character who disperses CoCoCourage, wit and wisdom.

A chance discovery by two divers uncovered Israel’s biggest find of underwater Roman-era artifacts in three decades Roman ship with bronze statues, coins and other artifacts probably sank in a storm in the ancient Mediterranean harbor off Caesarea shoreline.
Divers have been unearthing some rare archaeological treasures on the bottom of the sea, off Israel’s coast in Caesarea, during the past few weeks. The artifacts, apparently part of the cargo of a Roman merchant ship that sunk some 1,600 years ago, include coins, bronze statues, equipment used in running the ship, such as anchors, and numerous decorative items.

Almost a month has passed since Quinio El Guardian Citizen’s Science Dive Expedition set sail to the Revillagigedo Archipelago, (Socorro Islands), from San Jose del Cabo, Mexico. Each day I think of some part of that trip. I live in La Paz, BCS, Mexico.
I remember everyone was finally aboard on November 7th and we set sail. The seas were calm, the crossing was gentle.
