Summer Diving Adventures – Fascinating Underwater Sculpture Gardens

Brooks Range Diving Adventurers

Brooks Range Mountaineering was founded by explorer Matt Brooks in 1995. Matt is a mountaineer, rescuer, entrepreneur and, he is also a diver. In fact, did you know he helped discover several species of fish off the coast of Indonesia?

If you’ve got the explorer bug too, you no doubt understand the magnetism of outdoor adventure, whether by land or by sea. While some explorers traverse mountains all year long, many of us trade in our snow tools for diving gear during the summer months. Where do we go?

The Current Diving Hotspots

While there is clearly no shortage of intriguing diving destinations, there is a commonality among many diving enthusiasts this year –– Underwater Sculpture Gardens. These captivating underwater gardens have come about for varied reasons. Some of the gardens were created somewhat naturally, when the area they were originally built in became submerged. Like, for example, Baia Archeological Park in Pozzuoli, Italy. Other gardens were put in place to promote a local ecosystem (Musa Mexico – Underwater Museum of Art) and some are the result of a determined artist.

"Laut bukan pemisah daratan tapi menyatukan pulau-pulau." -Sebuah tulisan di Bandara Hussein Sastranegara, Bandung . . . Aku gak tau kenapa ada tulisan kek gitu di bandara, tapi yang ku tau laut itu memang gak memisahkan siapapun. Contohnya aja hiu di laut bisa ngegigit manusia yang hidupnya di darat. . . . Lalu, kalau merasa terpisahkan karena laut gimana? Ya itu urusanmu sama dia. Coba hubungi dia, kali aja merindu huhehehe….. . . . Gear?
