Ok - I am Bermudian and have always heard about this Helmet Dive. I was apprehensive about this activity at first because #1 I'm terrified of being underwater and quite frankly I don't like the unknown. To be comfortable I need to be quite informed...More

One of the most amazing and unique experiences we've ever had. I took 4 children (10 to 16) and they all loved it. Greg is a great host and guide - informative, educational and entertaining (and loves an oxymoron:)). But the dive is sensational. Easy...More

My mother and aunt did this back in the 60's. Had to follow in her footsteps and glad that I did. Capt Greg is a unique individual. A humerous/wacky/off the wall but wholly informative and educational pre-dive talk added to the experience.More

The morning slot often has less people, because folks are not sure where we are, or if the ship will really be on time. A desire is a motivator, only while it is not totally met. I feed the fish in the morning, only so much... More

This is science 101. The air, which is lighter than water, goes up. It is cupped inside the helmet. It is opposite to how a glass of water works. If you have a hole in the bottom of your glass, or a hole in the top of your... More
