Who remembers “Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea” or “Sea Hunt”? There is more to scuba diving nostalgia than just vintage equipment.
As we all know, scuba diving has drastically changed over a relatively short period of time. We have gone from the very crude to highly technical gear and diving techniques.
Believe it or not, but there are divers that still enjoy vintage scuba diving. The Vintage Scuba Museum may peak your interest if you are into vintage scuba diving. They have all sorts of vintage scuba equipment and offer a wealth of information about vintage diving.
In the following video the Vintage Scuba Museum presents and demos vintage equipment as well as TV shows of the 60`s that inspired many of our divers today.
Watch the Vintage Scuba Museum`s video below and take a walk down the memory lane of scuba diving for a bit.
When doing this post I went back to previous episodes of my favorite childhood show, “Voyage To The Bottom of The Sea”. Granted, it was made in the 60`s, but the ideas and concepts behind the show as far as their futuristic outlook on underwater technology is still impressive. Especially having been created in the 1960’s. However, I found it physically and mentally exhausting to watch them actually trying to “scuba dive” in certain episodes …. I mean I was in tears due to laughter. They were actually grabbing at the water and swimming with their arms… My-oh-my things have changed. You have to see it to believe it.
Even the Caped Crusaders ( batman & Robin) had a run-in with a shark… LOL
Yes, we often forget the fact that not long ago scuba diving was more of a fascination than a sport which you could readily participate in. An article in Sport Diver.com titled ” 6 Classic Movies and Shows That Inspired a Generation Of Scuba Divers” mentions shows such as “Sea Hunt”
