Hello all ! please only post one favorite dive site per reply, and do not forget the location so that others if ever nearby may try it out if the occasion comes up.

This one is one of my first dives ever. Was in Cayman Island, did a beginner/tourist cave dive one day and a hard helm+hose as well to meet waldo the fish. This was with Bob Soto's if I remember correctly.

Awesome !!! Once we have a longer list I will save and print them for the future.

Another dive I did in thousand islands area (east of mallorytown-ontario-canada), access by boat, skill is advanced because of visibility with current (1-10 feet). Sunk in 1912 carrying coal. She lies in 30-100 feet of water. I would go once more with a smaller group and better lighting next time around. This was my first advanced dive so I did not enter the hull :-( .

In my first post, I mentioned a fun drift dive of a wreck. Was 2 miles southwest of Brockville-Ontario-Canada. From sparrow island using the anchor chain. The Lillie parsons sank in 1868 carrying 500 tons of coal. Impressive centerboard schooner (2masted). Intermediate or advanced skills required as current and large vessels nearby also making huge waves on the island.

In my next posts, will be caribean ocean dives.

Last time is visited Belize, or the island of Ambergris Caye, I did the Hol Chan sanctuary. Its a any skill level dive, 10-50 feet of the barrier reef. Nice place to take photos as there is a good variety of sea life there. Saw some small turtles, stingrays, nurse sharks and about 2 dozens types of fish.
It is a short boat ride from the island.

Blue Lagoon in Huntsville, Texas is an outstanding dive. It is an old limestone quarry. The water is acidic due to limestone. It is so clear it's like diving in a giant swimming pool. The average depth is about 20 feet.

The place was called Jurassic Park by the local dive shop. It was a reef in southern Cozumel.

Baltic Sea, you will not find wrecks like this any wher in the world thanks to the nature of the water and no wood eating organism.

Cueva de las Gambas. It is not so far from where I live and a perfect site for some micro life. Every time I find new species on the site. https://www.scubacrowd.com/dive-site/lanzarote/cueva-de-las-gambas/36

Just keep diving
