Take a Quick Dive Beneath Your Keel Without Getting Wet!
Our friend Max Fletcher is taking a Christmas “holiday” aboard a Garcia 50 under sail in Antarctica. One of the fun facts from the sail is the fact that the Antarctic shag is the deepest-swimming flying bird. It can dive to depths of 371 feet.
It reminded us of a clever online tool we ran a few years ago, and that is always fun to revisit. It shows sea creatures and how deep they can dive below the surface. How deep can a polar bear dive? The answer is almost 90 feet!
Did you know that emperor penguins can dive 1,700-ish feet? Do you know how deep a human being has dived (and when)? What’s the largest type of crab? Who were the first people to take a submarine into the Mariana Trench?
These are some of the many cool facts we found when scrolling down, down… down on The Deep Sea. We highly recommend taking a deep dive, by clicking here.
That was a wonderful presentation !
Fantastico! Thanks for sharing – whodathunk?
