Silhouette of scuba diver under pier. Homo sapiens. Caracas Baai, Curacao, Netherlands Antilles. Unaltered/Uncontrolled N/AToday I have a little window into a very crazy, very spooky world that few divers get to experience, mainly because it’s overlooked or one needs to be an advanced diver to play here. Diving under these massive piers is nothing less than a pure adrenaline rush! You have to constantly watch your depth and all the dangers that surround you like fishing string, jagged metal objects poking out everywhere, snags of every shape and size, loose objects ready to fall, and a million things to hit you head on. The upside is all the cool stuff that is either attached to the pilings or living under them, it’s kind of like a giant man-made cave. Because of all the human junk like tires and iron objects of every shape and size, there are millions of little places for things to hide in. So, if you get over the fear that something is watching you and just relax you will find amazing stuff.  MORE
