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.
While there are some great boat dives that are not to be missed up here, most people who start diving in Alaska will start with shore entries. Take advantage of the fact by swimming along the bottom all the way out of the water, instead of ascending vertically along a line. It's a good way to guarantee a gradual ascent, and to automatically build a safety stop into your dive plan without having to stay in one place for 3 minutes.
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.
