Unusual diving sites – nuclear missile silo – video

At the moment, we all have a forced break from diving and a lot of free time to devote to, among other things, searching for new and interesting underwater sites that are worth visiting. If you are a fan of extremely unusual dives, then you should definitely check out what a flooded silo used to store nuclear missiles has to offer!

This very unique dive site is waiting for everyone near Royal City in Washington State, USA. There is a flooded complex of silos that once served the Titan I nuclear missiles, where commercial dives are organised for daredevils looking for new experiences.

The maximum depth we can reach during the dive is about 33-35 meters, and the cost of the dive (including 2 cylinders) oscillates around $150. If our qualification does not allow us to dive in a similar environment, for an additional $60 we can arrange to be trained and certified as a PADI Missile Silo Diver Specialty.

The dive in the complex itself includes three silos and a network of tunnels connecting them. Dangers are posed by remnants of metal floor panels left by the “cleaning crew”, protruding pieces of metal, pipes or dangling electrical cables. Crossing through the partially flooded tunnels also requires cooperation of the whole team, so the site is more suitable for groups of well-trained divers.
