That is right, the US offers some of the best dive sites … everything from aquarium diving, to the large kelp forests of California, underwater museums of the Great Lakes, the quarries of the Midwest, the coral gardens of the Florida Keys as well as the Outer Banks of North Carolina for wreck-diving.

Lets not forget the volcanic lava flows of Hawaii and the crystal springs of Florida. We didn’t even mention the more than 60 national marine sanctuaries that are scattered along the coast and islands of US and its territories. There are just too many to mention.

This post presents only four of them and the article referenced below covers quite a few more.  If you have any favorites, share them with us in the comments section below.
