Unusual Ideas

If you are looking for something a little more extreme than ironing underwater you can also join an underwater hockey team.

Or, for the extra brave, you can join an underwater ice hockey team. According to Wikipedia, underwater hockey is also known as Octopush and consists of two teams competing to move a puck across the bottom of a swimming pool into the opposing team’s goal with a hockey stick.

It is usually played underneath an ice rink or frozen pond. Traditional underwater ice hockey is reserved for freedivers (diving without equipment) but scuba diving lessons would definitely help with training for such an extreme activity.

EXTREME SCUBA DIVE DESTINATIONS

Papua New Guinea

Head to Papua New Guinea where the waters are home to rich in coral gardens and an abundance of marine life. To top it off, you can also dive amongst sunken relics from World War II, viewing everything from missiles to bomber planes.

Cocos Island, Costa Rica

Cocos Island is like something straight out of National Geographic. This diver’s paradise boasts a virtually untouched eco-system. With more than 20 dive sites, divers can view the extreme side of the ocean, like schools of hammerheads swimming all around you.

Truk Lagoon

Located in a sheltered body of water 1,800 kilometers northeast of New Guinea, this adventurous dive destination is ideal for wreck divers. There are nearly 50 sites to explore where shipwrecks, sunken tanks, and airplanes fill the ocean floor, all waiting to be explored.
