The Estonian maritime museum is located on two sites. Part of the collection is on display in Thick Margareta, a tower in the city wall encircling the old town, while the rest can be found in Lennusadam (an old water plane hangar). Both sites are a walking distance apart. This museum does not really offer much in diving history, but a few very interesting artifacts can be found in Thick Margareta. These alone warrant a visit.
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.
