On a Sunday in February, the five of us drove early in the morning to Belgium and saw a beautiful sunrise. The low sun did his best to dazzle the eyes. It was quiet on the road.
After a coffee stop we were in the reception hall of the diving school just before nine o’clock. After showing the dive passes the straps were provided and the wet adventure for four of us could begin. One saw the whole experience from dry land.
As a non-diver you can watch the activities of the divers, snorkelers and of course the many fish from behind a few windows on the second floor. The water is clear so you can see a large part of the tank.
Divers can enjoy all kinds of fish and underwater furniture in the basin up to 10 meters deep. In water of a pleasant temperature, you will find car wrecks, columns, a bar and a mine tunnel. Dimfie has compiled this nice video of the images we recorded with a GoPro underwater and an iPhone from behind the glass.
The diving school is located in a former mining area. All around, the remains can still be seen. A number of old buildings have been reused or are to be be renovated.
