I’ve never been diving.
When I was really young, I was really focused on not getting the bends. It was something I actively avoided (but never encountered) in day-to-day life. I probably still wouldn’t go diving now that I’m an adult because of this lingering fear, but hey, you never know.
My friend got a underwater exploration book for Christmas, and we’ve been perusing that for a while, so I thought I would continue my dryland ventures into the Ocean.
Original Diving is really a travel service that’s focused on providing divers with the best vacation and diving experiences. The organization is made up of a team of diving experts who have traveled all over the world and strive to provide the best diving experiences for clients. The blog portion of the site provides a bunch of different snapshots of interesting diving locations in easy to digest articles.

Viktoria began this blog with one big mantra in mind: “Do more of what makes you happy!”
This blog is more of a lifestyle travel blog, but I always love blogs with personality (and Viktoria has a fun one – always bringing a Dirndl with her to all of the locations that she visits). The way this blog is segmented also makes it easy to look at other topics, if you need a break from diving.

Spotmydive is a scuba touring agency based in France.
The main purpose of this blog was to show visitors the best locations to dive in, but it’s since progressed.
One of the reasons I like this blog is because it shows the nitty gritty of diving (with an article about my personal fave, the bends), and also features information about some new diving gear releases.

Scuba Diver Life covers all aspects of underwater life, from preservation to tools and tips for dives. The site is run by diver Nadia Aly, and features easy navigation (it also provides a link to her diving vlogs, which are cool to check out if you’re interested in underwater photography). This blog showcases different parts of the ecosystem and leans a little more on the educational side, which is why it’s of particular interest to me.
