Extreme Drift Divers Tossed In “The Washing Machine”
A group of extreme divers experience the rocks in a very fast moving rip current that can only be described as a “washing machine” .
There is an area between two islands in Exuma Cays that is known for its extremely fast and turbulent current. It is affectionately known as the”washing machine”
It is a favorite spot for extreme drift divers. This type of diving is only for experienced divers.. so dont go down there without the proper training.
It gives youth exhilarating rush of a roller-coaster. In fact its like a natural roller-coaster underwater where there are no tracks and you must do all you can to control your dive and avoid the rocks.
Unfortunately in this video a few of the divers do hit the rocks and keeping the dive group together proved to be challenging … watch below.
Watch the video below to see what the “washing machine” experience is like.
This spot is loved and enjoyed by experienced drift divers, and understandably so. However, It can be a treacherous dive for the inexperienced drift diver… so if you want to do this dive, get the training and go with an experienced group.Drift Diving
