Diving sites and scuba centers in Brazil
At more than 1000 feet below sea level, the Dead Sea is the deepest lake in the world. Located between Israel, Jordan and theWest Bank, its salty water comes from the connection to the sea.
The lake is also dry and loses water quickly, more than three feet per year. Today the salt concentration in the water is about 33%, which causes it to crystallize on the shore.
To take a scuba diving in this environment, you will need a full-frame mask and a lots of extra weight, because the great amount of salt makes you float. There is not difficulty when swimming, but a drop of water near your eyes is not very comfortable in this situation.
