Diving in the Netherlands
The Netherlands, a country full of dykes, dams and waters, is not necessarily the traditional dive destination. However, in the old and murky waters, where it is recommended to use a torch and wear thicker wetsuit, wonderful underwater parks full of ancient wrecks will amaze you. The mecca of diving in this country is Zeeland with lake Oosterschelde as the most attractive dive spot. Lakes and rivers and the North Sea coast with interesting marine species make it worth diving here in both freshwater and saltwater.
Discover the world’s most fascinating aquatic life
Aquatic life under our oceans, lakes, rivers, and streams is amazing! From microscopic zooplankton to the largest animal on earth, the blue whale, underwater life comes in all possible shapes and sizes. With 71% of the earth being covered with water, it is no wonder we are so fascinated with what lies beneath the surface. In fact, scientists estimate that there are nearly 1 million different species of aquatic animals. Freshwater ecosystems are home mainly to fish, invertebrates, and reptiles, whereas the ocean contains a wide array of marine life including fish, mollusks, crustaceans, reptiles, sharks, and marine mammals like whales, dolphins, seals, and manatees.
