The Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium
by. Dolvin ≈ October 21, 2010
This is a very big aquarium.. coz this is whale aquarium.. and very amazing.. ^^
The Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium
(沖縄美ら海水族館, Okinawa Churaumi Suizokan?), located within the Ocean Expo Commemorative National Government Park in Okinawa, Japan. It is the world's second largest aquarium, behind the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, and welcomed its 20 millionth visitor on 30 March 2010.

The aquarium is a member of the Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums (JAZA).

In 1975, the World's Exposition or World's Fair was held in Okinawa, Japan at the Ocean Expo Park. Afterward, the park began to lose tourism and it was believed that a new aquarium would help revive the area and celebrate Okinawa's Marine tradition. The aquarium was designed by Yukifusa Kokuba and was opened on 1 November 2002.

"Churaumi" was selected as the name of the aquarium by public vote amongst Japanese people. "Chura" means "beautiful" or "graceful" in the Okinawan dialect, and "umi" means "ocean".

Lithuania Underwater Art
by. Dolvin ≈ August 25, 2010
Few days ago, I heard news from morning radio.
They talked about underwater art.. its amazing unique art in Lithuania, Northern Europe.

The underwater sculpture park creates a whole new perspective on the world. The underwater gallery is sited in the shallow waters at Moliniere Bay in Grenada, which is renowned for its diving experience. Its creator is the artist Jason de Caire Taylor. He is a fully qualified dive instructor with over 14 years of diving experience.

His love of the underwater world provokes the idea to explore the relationships between art and the environment. Currently there are 65 sculptures, covering the area of 75 sq. m. with all weigh around 20 tons. By using sculptures to create artificial reefs, the artist’s intervention underlines the need to protect the natural world. The sculptures are in 2-8 meters underwater allowing easy access by scuba divers and snorkelers.

Cenote Angelita an Amazing Underwater River
by. Dolvin ≈ February 27, 2010
A friend of mine.. gave me this article bout few days ago...
Cenote Angelita.. an underwater river? so amazing.. this river is in Cenote Angelita, Mexico..

Underwater River

If you are an expert diver you can dive towards the floor of the water-filled cave. As you get deeper the water turns from pure to salty; and the bottom, it’s a river. Deeper than 30 meters the water is pure, and deeper than 60 meters it becomes saline.

Some meters away before you get to the bottom of the cave, you see a river underneath, with trees and leaves floating on some liquid level. However it may seem like a river, it’s not a real river. It’s just a layer of hydrogen sulphide beneath. All in all, it looks startling and unforgettable when you get there and see it with your own eyes.

According to Anatoly Beloshchin, a professional photographer, the underwater scenery is amazing. He describes, “We are 30 meters deep, fresh water, then 60 meters deep – salty water and under me I see a river, island and fallen leaves… Actually, the river, which you can see, is a layer of hydrogen sulphide.”

On your way down you can see spectacular layers of rocks formed during the last ice age. However, as a visitor, cave and cavern divers, you need to learn to be safe and careful. You got to become part of this unique and stunning cave setting to appreciate these amazing archaeological discoveries.
