I’ve often wondered what it is about diving that makes it so addictive. Is it the smell of the neoprene and silicone? The lifestyle? Or maybe we all get a bit hooked on the little hits of narcosis that most of us don’t even notice?

But perhaps it’s simply the bliss of communing with our planet’s huge bodies of water. Does anything ever come close to that special silence that hits as you sink below the surface? That quiet and creeping sense of wonder as you immerse yourself in another world, with the chance of magical encounters with all sorts of denizens of the deep? Probably.
