SITE MAINTENANCE Our old server was limiting and slow. In order to accommodate our changing needs, we have decided to move to a new address. Welcome to it! Unfortunately, the move has interfered with certain of the site's features, including the most popular feature (the forums). Please bear with us for the next few days as we work out some kinks and reenable these features.
It's easy to silt out yourself and your buddy in Alaska's muddy conditions. Avoid it by staying off the bottom (five feet is good,) improving your kicks (if you are pushing the water backward to propel you forward then you aren't pushing it down to stir up the muck,) and changing your finning techniques. Proven techniques to avoid silting out include the modified flutter and the frog kick.
Welcome to the Alaska SCUBA page. At the moment, this is a purely volunteer effort. The goal of the Alaska SCUBA site is to collect and disseminate useful information about diving all around the State. The owner's dive experience is limited - I dive South Central, so I know very little about the conditions and adventures elsewhere. I would love to have your input to grow the site and add more tools and information.
