If you build it they will come - well sort of - if the 'they' is divers that would be the positive outcome! And so - about fifteen years ago Undersea Adventures started bringing divers - a select group - to a Titan 1 Missile Silo located in Washington. The Silo was installed in a known dried up river bed. Apparently military management were unwilling to take heed of the advice of Engineers and determined a known riverbed posed no issue with underground water! While the Silo was in commission, pumps kept the underground environment dry. When the site was decommissioned - voila! Dive Site! Thank you Dave Bruns for a fantastic weekend. Thank you to Darryl Jensen for thinking up such a great dive trip and hopefully we will get to see some of your quality videos soon. In the interim - my iPhotos will have to do! These are some shots from the entrance to our dive site access for Silos 2 and 3 as well as the surface (underground) tour of the powerhouse and personnel accommodations. Pretty neat experience. And Now - we are certified Missile Silo Divers!
Darryl Jensen has completed his video of this exciting dive! He did a fantastic job - check it out!
