    Now that looks cool. Makes me want to jump in

    Definitely thinking it would be nice to finish my open water somewhere I don't need all the thermal gear. Diving for pleasure in lots of kit is one thing, but trying to manoeuvre to remove & replace mask & BCD etc isn't easy in the cold.

    If you want to do your deep dive and don't want to do it in some god forsaken quarry in Cumbria which is only accessible via a long walk in full gear and climb down a ladder then try this Nemo 33 in Brussels. Weekend away with your other half and a deep dive to boot....

    Not quite. He was charged with murdering her by turning her air off but he was acquitted.

    Did someone Photoshop out the underwater motorcycle?

    Having done my first two open water dives in the sea last weekend I'm very tempted to finish my Open Water certificate abroad! I had two wetsuits, gloves, hood and the usual kit and it wasn't the easiest way to practice skills underwater (or walk, come to that). Very difficult to put a mask on and off when you can't feel your fingers.

    I did see a few nice fish (blenny, pollack, pipefish, little white ones), a medium sized crab and lots of plant life, and it was very pretty looking up through the water as the sun shone down illuminating a herd of little fish. But also quite cold, and vis of only about 2m by dive 2.

    One of the guys on the course came back up from 6m with a mask full of blood due to his nose bleeding on the way down. Quite freaky to see when you come back up.

    You sure you were both on the same conversation?

    Water temp was a steady 22C. I have a 2-piece 5mm dungarees and jacket and other than on the Malkakov, I was fine in the dungarees and a rash vest ...
