The underwater world is an oasis for adrenaline junkies. There are few things more exciting than strapping on your oxygen tank, plunging off the side of a dive boat, and sinking into the ocean’s deep blue depths. It's a total rush to swim inside the eye of a school of menacing barracudas or to float by a turtle that is even bigger than you.
