After Work Dive – Life on land is just a surface interval

This is not just a word – it is a philosophy: After work dive. Would you think it is worth creating a brevet for it? How could an education plan look like?
From Time Management via preparation techniques of your equipment until night diving skills – a comprehensive framework of skills are to be trained ūüėČ




Scuba Diving in the Echinger Weiher (Munich, Germany)

What can make a small lake with a maximum depth of 8 meters, a length of little over 200 Meters and a width of 100 meters so attractive for scuba divers?

Well, the¬†Echinger Weiher¬†is a (well known) and very beautiful place¬†for scuba divers in the north of Munich, Germany. Furthermore you have to do a reservation and the water is always cold – even in hottest summer time rarely above 13¬į Celcius – but it is worth it!


Deepest man made lake in southwest of Germany – Matschelsee

It is both – famous and notorious. One of the deepest man made lake in the southwest of Germany. Very often it is offering very good visibility which makes it a well known diving site not only in this region. And especially technical divers like it: Matschelsee. Unfortunately this lake is highly frequented by scuba divers – und thus is is very useful that you have to sign in from the following web site to get a permission to do so: Tauchclub Offenburg.

In this first video we are just at the head:

Scuba Diving in the Black Forest – it can be done

Scuba Diving in the Black Forest, Germany. In the video “Tauchen in der Nagoldtalsperre – … und es geht doch!!” we prove that it is possible to dive there.

This was our first thought when we submerged in the Nagoldtalsperre- “… it can be done!”. In 10 years of scuba diving we tried it multiple times but every time we wanted to do it never again. This was because of the bad visibility in this reservoir in the middle of the¬†Black Forest. But this time it was different…


Scuba Diving in the Lake Constance – Kressbronn, Gohren


The first Dive this year Рalso our first dive in the eastern part of Lake Constance which has a quite different character compared to the area next to Überlingen -> soft heaps instead of a drop off.

This was a quest for a not very well known wreck at a depth of approx. 35 meters… near the city of Kressbronn / Gohren.

At a depth of 5 meters we felt like inside of a¬†soft drink bottle -> a lot of bubbles comming out of the ground …
