Exploring the Bikini Atoll’s USS Saratoga

With so many penetration possibilities and an abundance of details inside and outside, you could easily go to Bikini Atoll and spend a whole week just diving the USS Saratoga. In fact, if the aircraft carrier was the only wreck here, it would still be worth the long travel.

Diving projects, or expeditions—think Bill Stone’s Wakulla Springs 1987 project, or the original explorations of the Woodville Karst Plain’s Project (WKPP)—helped give birth to technical diving, and today continue as an important focal point and organizing principle for communities like Global Underwater Explorers (GUE). The organization this year unveiled a new Project Diver program, intended to elevate “community-led project dives to an entirely new level of sophistication.” Here, authors Guy Shockey and Francesco Cameli discuss the power of projects and take us behind the scenes of the new program.
