Cold Water

It takes a special kind of diver to gear up in layers upon layers of heavy, bulky equipment and make the plunge into cold water.

Being a cold water diver is not for everyone, but it allows you to explore above and beyond what most divers get to see. Productive waters and untouched expanses of ocean are a few things that come to mind when we think of cold water diving, but there are many more reasons to brave bone chilling waters.

Suit up and dive in to some of our favorite cold water diving articles, after all, a little cold never hurt anyone.
