Expedition Dive Ascension



There are no tourists, the land is barren and volcanic, it’s almost impossible to reach, and it’s waters are filled with sharks. This is Ascension Island.

Ascension Island is an oceanic relic of volcanic activity; a lone island almost mid-way between South America and Africa and only a few degrees south of the equator. With no permanent or indigenous population, it is a communications relay base and staging post for flights to the South Atlantic.

Its harsh lava flow and cinder cone landscape is dotted with green foliage and the surrounding waters are warm and clear. But the coast can be buffeted by strong winds and powerful surges, which makes diving here challenging. The attraction is that its remoteness makes it a remarkable place for marine life.
