Tobermory Dive Chamber

Tobermory Hyperbaric Facility Needs Our Help

The dive chamber is undergoing a refurbishment and it needs aid to complete the work.  The Dive Team fully supports this project and urges you to do the same!

The Tobermory Facility exists for divers and those with medical issues who gain some relief when using the chamber.  It is an important resource that helps us feel at ease when we are diving in Tobermory.  I learned from Dr. George Harpur that at least one diver has been brought to the chamber with vital signs absent and they were able to walk out of the chamber.  It saves lives!

Please take a moment to visit the website and consider making any donation to help out such a valuable safety facility.

Scuba Diving in Cienfuegos Cuba

Cienfuegos means a hundred fires in Spanish.  There were five shipwrecks from 165 ft to 55ft.  This spot covers all types of diving potential.  I stayed at the Rancho Luna hotel near the dive sites.cienfuegos 2015 042
