Dry Diving in Hyperbaric Chamber Überlingen

We’ve been here with Scubado and we did a 50m simulated dive for 65 min: It was an interesting adventure.Here are some interesting points: At the beginning, during compression phase, it was very cold (18°  and it was foggy), soon after it became warmer During the compression phase, even if it was 10 m / minute, we had to compensate all the time the pressure with equalization of our ears. While it is normal to equalize, we usually don’t do that so often in a normal dive under water. At 50m our voices sounded like those who breathe Helium We had our diving computers, but we were asked to put them in a bucket of water all the time, otherwise they could get damaged.   More pictures to come…     Pictures from the Hyperbaric chamber:

Diving in Crete, Greece – August 2023 – First photos with nudibranchs

Between 23.08 and 2.09 we’ve been in Crete, Greece. We stayed in Petousis hotel and I went diving with Eco Diving Crete. With them I’ve been to the following locations: 2 times 2 x Mononaftis 2 xMades “Minnewaska Wreck”  and “Elephant Cave” – 2.5h drive to Chania. Byron Wreck I did 9 dives in total. I have to say that the trip to Chania was very tough (7 AM to 9.30 AM).   I tested properly my Olympus TG-6 with the lights, which I now enhanced even more. More about this later …
