We really enjoyed our stop on the way down the Florida Keys the History of Diving Museum in Islamorada, Florida.
These metal suits were used to protect the diver from the high levels of pressure at depths near a thousand feet, greatly reducing the decompression times. They look more like robots to me.
Helmets were used way into the 1960s!
There is an impressive collection of real diving helmets from every country in the world that has made them.
We’ve always just driven past this amazing sculpture of a spiny lobster.
This time, we just had to share this cool photo opportunity!
