Since I was a kid as a son of the sea captain my dreams were about the adventures related to the oceans. I was dreaming about pirates and the treasure hidden beneath the sea. I was dreaming about ocean exploration. This is one of the things which made me become a diver.
Yesterday we decided to start exploring some of the farther divesites while we are not busy with our diving clients. To speed up the search and to cover more spots we were utilizing just mask fins and snorkel doing periodic check of different parts of the coast line. As we jumped in the water and formed a line to get a better coverage of the bottom within few minutes we stopped to examine two objects laying on the bottom in less then 16 feet of water. You cannot even imagine our excitement when we realised those were two ancient cannons lying within few feet apart of each other. I could not sleep all night wondering how did they end up in such a shallow water and what ship they belong to. My dive partner Ernesto Manzanares already start looking for any information they might have in Cuban archives. Cuba has lots of diving treasure only waiting for you to discover.
I will keep you posted !!!
