Technical diving changed our perception of scuba diving, moving out of common contexts to deep unexplored wrecks and caves.

 

Surprisingly, we can observe this in crowded recreational dive sites, where technical diving has changed or redesigned the map of dive sites.

 

Trimix, scooters and rebreathers allow to regularly dive these sites at depths well beyond recreational limits, sometimes diving two or more spots at once. These tools allowed the discovery of new dive trails and sites which have become common knowledge. Often these explorations involve long scooter rides on  the lunar-like seabed, possibly holding unexpected surprises.

 

Out there, a few hundreds of meters apart from mooring buoys, nearby walls, reefs and wrecks there is a unknown world waiting to be (re) discovered.

 

 

 

Poor viz and a lot of backscatter... I know but this is our winter sea :)

As nortoda1 says, I'd take that vis any day.  Also, I really liked your outro titling with the 50% gray overlay title.  I might have to steal that idea for a project that I'm working on right now.

I've been using that titling for quite some time. Just look at the last part of my previous video "Valsavoia" e "La Foce" to see how it looks in a longer version.

 

Thanksss

Great video and well-put - technical diving certainly has changed the map on more than a few dive sites!
