Diving in USA

The United States of America sits in the middle of North America with Canada to the north and Mexico to the south. People migrating from all over the world for over 200 years have made the U.S.A. a multiculturally diverse country. The U.S.A. is a country with one of the most diverse landscapes in the world. Visit the majestic Rocky Mountains in the west, the dry deserts of the Southwest, or the rolling plains of middle America. The East Coast is filled with lively and history-rich cities, which include Washington D.C., New York City, and Boston. You can also explore the warmer region of Florida and get astonished with the breathtaking islands of Hawaii.

Diving in the United States of America (U.S.A.) means submerging in one of the most diverse places in the world. Every type of diver will find a perfect adventure in the U.S.A. You can go ice diving in Alaska, do some cold water diving in the majestic kelp forests of the West Coast or explore the deep haunting wrecks of the East Coast. Between your adventures in the East and West coast, you can expect plenty of freshwater locations within the lakes, quarries, and springs in the interior of the country. Some of the best dive spots in the U.S.A. are located in Florida, where you can enjoy the world-famous tropical diving.
