Into the Blue

For a trip, an escape from all the trivialities in life, where do you want to go? A crowded, bustling city or an endless blue world?

There is nothing like diving into the deep blue ocean, beholding colorful corals and all kind of fishes, swimming with bizarre sea creatures. Nearly 71% of the earth is covered by ocean. And diving enables you to discover a whole new world of your own. If surfing is a combat with the force of the ocean, diving is an intimate romance with the gentle deep ocean. Among all different types of diving, scuba diving and free diving are the most popular. Scuba diving requires professional training and certification, while free diving is basically about diving into water by holding your breath for as long as you can with no need for breathing apparatus. Among all extreme sports currently known, free diving was ranked the second most dangerous by Forbes right after sky diving.

Although diving can be somewhat dangerous, it never stopped adventurous diving lovers. Because life is never complete without diving, without immersing yourself in the tranquility of the depths of the ocean and having a sober conversation with yourself. When it comes to diving, people invariably think of Indonesia’s Raja Ampat and Manado, Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands and Egypt’s Red Sea, but these places all seem far way. For those who desire for a diving trip without travelling out of China, where can they go?

Dapeng, hidden in the southern Chinese city, Shenzhen, with a sea area of 305 square kilometers, is indeed a world-class beach resort. It is the most beautiful in summer. With abundant sunlight, weaves and golden beaches, it’s the best natural harbor in southern China. There are all types of fishes and corals in all four seasons. As fishes migrate in April and May, you can even get a chance to see spectacular sights of sharks, turtles and sea wolf packs etc.

Some boat on the sea to contemplate the breathtakingly beautiful scenery, while others dive deep down to explore a totally different new world. Recently, diving in Shenzhen has become more and more popular. Yangmeiken, with water so clear that rocks in it can be clearly seen, accredited to be the most beautiful vale in Shenzhen, was a filming site of The Mermaid directed by Stephen Chow. In the presence of such clear ocean water, all you can think of is diving into the very bottom of it to have a date with flocks of fishes hidden in the corals.

Lover’s Island at Xichong is also a romantic destination, especially for lovers. When you are at Xichong, the best preserved and the most beautiful beach in Shenzhen, you can miss on everywhere else but you can’t miss on diving here. Xichong has the best water quality and corals in the whole China, and Lover’s Island is only 5 minutes away by speed boat. Endless white beach surrounds the entire island. It’s said that, it is also home to the largest number of clownfish in Shenzhen, giving you a great chance to encounter Nemo in the movie Finding Nemo, allowing the entire ocean to witness your jump of joy.

Big Sanmen Island & Small Sanmen Island Diving Base is one of the best preserved islands currently in China, only 1.5 sea miles from Dapeng Peninsula, renounced as a diving resort in the Pearl River Delta. Without any river flowing in within 2000 square kilometers, the sea water is extremely clear with 12-meter visibility, and indeed is naturally a diving resort. Sanmen Islands, with the most beautiful corals in Shenzhen, more than 400 species of sea creatures, has everything you can ever expect for.

Many people say, diving gives them a sense of tranquility they rarely had. While in Shenzhen, you just need a bit of courage to have your dream diving experience. When you are indeed in the blue world, you will find out it’s not just a trip to the ocean, but more of a discovery trip to your heart.

如果想去遨游,想痛快地腾空生活的琐屑,你会选择去哪里。是去繁华拥挤的城市穿梭,还是去一‘蓝’无余的世界放空呢。

纵深潜入蔚蓝的海底,尽揽绚丽珊瑚和多彩的鱼类,与奇特的海洋生物畅快共游,大概是再惬意不过的事情。地球表面近71%都是海洋,热爱潜水,等于开拓了自己的世界。如果说冲浪是与海洋力量的自由搏击,那潜水则是与静谧深海的温柔缠绵。在众多潜水方式之中,水肺潜水和自由潜水深受人们喜爱。水肺潜水需要专业培训和认证才能完成潜水,而自由潜水基本上不需要带任何水肺设备的潜水,而是一口气潜得尽可能深或保持水下的时间尽可能地长。在目前已知的极限运动中,自由潜水被美国《福布斯》杂志评为世界第二大危险运动,仅次于高楼跳伞。

尽管潜水也有一定的危险系数,但仍有众多富有冒险精神的潜水爱好者趋之若鹜。因为,没有尝试过潜水,没有尝试过沉入宁静的深海之中,与自己来一次清醒的对话,生命似乎总是不够完整。而谈及潜水,人们总会想到印度尼西亚的四王群岛和美娜多、厄瓜多尔的加拉帕戈斯群岛还有埃及的红海等。但这些潜水地,似乎都太遥远了。如果想要足不出“国”就来一趟潜水之旅,目的地可以选择哪里呢。

其实,私藏在中国南方的深圳大鹏,拥有305平方公里海域,锐意打造成为世界级滨海旅游度假区。夏季是它一年之中的最美季节。阳光、海浪、金色的沙滩,这里是中国南方最佳的天然港湾。每年四季更迭,均能看到各种各样的鱼类和珊瑚,四五月份随着鱼类的洄游更能看到鲸鲨、海龟和海狼群等壮观景象。

有人泛舟海上贪恋这里的美景,也有人潜入深海探寻无尽的风光。近年来,深圳潜水运动越来越多的受到人们的热捧。而号称是深圳最美溪谷的杨梅坑,还曾是周星驰的《美人鱼》拍摄取景地,水质清晰,从山腰上往下看,海里的石头还可以清楚地数出来。对于如此清澈的海水,让人禁不住一头扎进去一探究竟,跃入海底约会礁石里藏着的自在遨游的鱼群。

西冲情人岛,也是一个浪漫的好去处,和伴侣牵手同游情人岛,才是真正的浪漫。西冲可谓深圳最原始漂亮的海滩,如果身到西冲,可以不去其他地方,但潜水绝不能错过。西冲有着国内其他任何海域都不具备的水质和水下珊瑚资源,乘快艇5分钟就可以到达目的地情人岛,一望无垠的白色沙滩环绕在海岸。据说,这里也是深圳小丑鱼最多的地方,让你邂逅《海底总动员》里的尼莫,让整个海洋,都能见证你雀跃的幸福。

大、小三门岛潜水基地,是中国目前保存最完好的自然生态海岛之一,距深圳大鹏半岛1.5海里,堪称珠三角潜水胜地,周边2000平方公里无任何江河入海口,海水清澈见底,能见度可达12米,可谓是一方与生俱来便为潜水而准备的圣地。三门岛拥有深圳最美的珊瑚区,400多种海洋生物繁衍生长,你所期待的水下世界,在这里都能一览无余。

很多人都说,潜水总能带给他们一种久违的宁静。而在南方的深圳,想要打开想象中的潜水之旅,只需要一次勇气。当你置身于一片蔚蓝中,会发现,它不仅仅是一次海洋之旅,更是一场内心探索之旅。
