Scuba Diving Bucket List

Everyone should have a bucket list because life is to short and you have to make sure you experience life and create memories because who know how much time on earth we have right?  Do not let life happen to you.  So why not have a SCUBA bucket list?

We have put together 10 obtainable locations that are on our bucket list and we will try to make at least one per year a reality.

 Georgia Aquarium

There are not many opportunities to dive in a aquarium.  At the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta you can dive with whale sharks, manta rays and much more, while onlookers peek through the glass. There is an additional advantage is you do not even have to bring your gear, the Georgia Aquarium provides all of the gear you will need.

Mermet Springs

Mermet Springs is an 8.5 acre spring fed stone quarry, in southern Illinois. The quarry has 100 foot walls and wooded hills encompassing nearly half of its perimeter. The sheer walls are not only on the top but can be followed to depths of 120 ft. This quarry is devoted to diving and dive training. There are items of interest for all divers. A Boeing 727 jet used in the movie “U.S. Marshals” is just one of the many sunken treasures. Snorkeling, kayaking, and on-site camping for divers and their guests are available.

Nemo 33

Nemo 33 is the deepest indoor swimming pool in the world. The pool is located in Brussels, Belgium. Its maximum depth is 113 ft. It contains 660,000 gal of non-chlorinated, highly filtered spring water maintained at 86 °F and holds several simulated underwater caves at the 33 ft depth level. Due to the warm temperature in the pool, divers can dive for extended periods without a wet suit. There are numerous underwater windows that allow outside visitors to look into the pools at various depths. The complex was designed by Belgian diving expert John Beernaerts as a multi-purpose diving instruction, recreational, and film production facility in 2004
