I found this article on Antarctica, and was blown away - what an awesome place!! ... plunge.php

Has anyone else dived there? What did you think? I have always dreamed of going down there, but can't imagine ever achieving it!!

(Mods, wasn't sure where to put this - feel free to move it if needed).

That really does look like a great dive! I love the shot of the penguins!

It gets better. I remember a Doco (or was it a holiday lifestyle prog?) where they do dives in these giant Antarctic Lakes. The viz is so clear that the other diver was so far away, they were but a dot. The Lakes are a lot brighter too.
Just drifting along with whatever is current.
