A Huge Wreck Artificial Reefs diving

The Oriskany Reef is an artificial reef made from and old air craft carrier its quite a huge "wreck" I use the term loosely as it was deliberately sunk to produce a new reef environment. A look at Oriskany an artificial reef a sunken aircraft carrier off the coast of Florida.

The Oriskany reef lies off the coast of Florida and is not recommended for novice divers as by US Marine Law it has to be a minimum of 55 feet navigational clearance from the surface to allow shipping to pass comfortably over it. Having said that it is that far down you do not have to go down very far to get a good view of it.

Explore the Wondrous Underwater World With Scuba Diving

The word scuba diving drives thoughts in our mind that change our definition of normal. It is an out of the world experience. Most of the people of this world might have never seen the underwater world in reality. It is truly a world by itself, but only those who take up the challenge of scuba diving can see for themselves how glorifying it seems. This sport, however, is not as tough as getting floatplane rating or float rating, but it is definitely a mind boggling experience. At times, it seems to be a link between life and reality.

It is an amazing experience to browse through the rocky coral reefs, and watch the sea's creatures blend into their surrounding. This makes them appear as part of scenery rather than actual living creatures. It is not less than a fantasy world. Many people just fancy the amazing world present underwater, while very few muster up the courage to go for scuba diving, and watch the beautiful scenery come to life. If you never took the chance to go for scuba diving, you might have missed on the exuberant display of colors by the lively creatures present underwater. If you fancy that world, then trust your instincts, as there is no better adventure than that in the underwater world.
