The tenth annual Day of Diving on 30th of May is a historical diving event. The public can make diving bell dives in the lovely river Aura. This unique experience alone mandates a visit. It is also possible to dive in an aquarium (a waterproofed telephone booth of glass) in Standard Diving Dress, equipped with a 12 bolt helmet and all that comes with it. Wooden helmets can also be tried. Address: Forum Marinum yard. Time: 9.00-15.00. Welcome!
Diving is a splendid hobby. It caters wonderfull views under the ice on a sunny winter's day and on other days one can venture into exciting submerged mines. Search and recovery diving and historical diving both add to the diversity of the hobby. And abroad there are warm waters and major adventures, although these seldom coincide. Add some publishing and web maintenance and you'll end up with a varied hobby that I can only recommended! I am most proficient in search and recovery diving and in sump diving (a form of cave diving).
At the moment I am maintaining two websites besides this one and am editor-in-chief of Luola, the journal of Finnish caving society. Other associations that I hold dear include my dive base Sukellusjaosto of Turku YMCA and the information security society TurkuSec.
