The greatest unexplored facet of our beautiful planet is the open waters. That’s no big surprise since 71% of the surface of the entire planet is covered by water. And the depth of the seas are more hostile to life – at least, to human life – than any other region on earth. Undersea terrain is made up of zones with deep sea volcanoes and deep valleys with creatures that call these zones their homes. It is quite fascinating that life exists in these extreme conditions – despite the high water pressure, total darkness, and low or high temperatures.
No wonder that human divers tend to focus on more shallow waters in the epipelagic zones of the sea. Here is where deep sea-diving and extreme sports come alive.
There is something breathtaking about the clear deep blue waters of our seas along with their repertoire of colorful creatures. Diving provides an exciting dimension in exploring the magnificent orifices of the rich underwater world. Excitement doesn’t quite describe the feeling when the diver is in their zone, meandering through dark caves, swimming with sharks, exploring the ecosystem and occasionally coming across ship wrecks (and possibly some lost pirate treasures). The rush of adrenaline that goes through extreme sports lovers as they set forth on an adventure is unforgettable, thanks to HD GoPro cameras they can record and relive those awesome moments.
