Diving in Ushuaia: a foretaste of Antarctica in Argentina

I have many scuba diving books at home, but few of them deal with what I’m looking for the most… unique scuba diving experiences in special inspirational places.

Diving in Marseille & the Calanques National Park

Of all the places I’ve dived in, few offered the possibility of gathering a vibrant city life with scuba diving adventures.

For my first trip to Indonesia, I initially only had in mind a road trip to scuba dive and get around Bali.
