Hallvik – Dive site

This is Hallvik in Iceland, not too far from the Silfra fissure and just as stunning, the photos do not do the viability and blues justice, the best things is the water was quite warm rangeing from 3 – 9 degrees.

We where guided by Dave from http://magmadive.is a guide that I could not recommend highly enough so if you are looking to go over then look them up.

Silfra – Dive 2

After the first dive my wife being the sensible woman she is decided to get out of her diving kit and get warm me on the other hand could not help but go back in, this is the second dive.

We where able to dive the Silfra fissure crack between the North American and Eurasian continents where the continental plates meet, one truly unique place.

Diving at Holbrough Lakes

Went for a little dive over at Holbrough lakes this afternoon / this evening trying out a Liquid Image video camera mask, pleasantly surprised with the video.

We found the bus that was sunk at Holbrough lakes a couple of weeks ago.

 

 

One of my favorite dives

I have wanted to dive all of my life and not too long ago I finally took the plunge and went for it, I have loved every moment of it but one dive stands out for me.

So while I was more than happy to make bubbles my other half was not quite so keen, in fact her exact words where “who in their right mind would want to do that”, after a couple of months of me having fun she decided that she would give it a try in the pool, a few weeks later she did her open water and we where booking a holiday to Egypt together.

This dive happened in Holbrough Lake in May 2014, it was the first dive we did together after my other half qualified as an Open Water diver and was just fantastic.

Holbrough lakes dive map

Unfortunately for me my underwater navigation is not the best so in an attempt to get better I have decided to map out Holbrough Lakes and then use a custom Google map to show my work.

Lets hope it go’s well.

I am going to use different layers in the map so you can see the guide ropes  & places of interest but not necessary all at once its your choice.

Each of the pins in the map will have some textual information, photos and video if needed.

To see a bigger version of the map just click on the top right icon next to the sign in link inside the map and it will pop out into a new window.
