Antarctic Diving 12 - Just Left the Water

Emerging from a dive in Antarctica is like emerging from a dive anywhere else except more so. The underwater world of rocky faces and ledges is as vividly coloured as anywhere in the world, brightly coloured encrusting invertebrates with shells and fish. It's also not too cold thanks to what you're wearing, and under the ice it is of course all perfectly still, no waves, no swell.

Back on the surface the world becomes black white and blue again and all your diving gear weighs more than ever as you've extra weights to keep you down against the extra buoyancy of your suit, a result of it's extra insulating abilities.
