Danish sport divers in action

The diving boat Aquanaut on its way to the Swedish side of Øresund. The bulk carrier Newcastle Max
 and Kronborg castle in the background.

When I first saw this small boat approach the fishing nets close to the Laröd bathing pier, I thought somebody was coming to check the catch.

Aquanaut and the fishing nets close to Laröd.

Preparing for a dive.

However, soon I realised that the people on board the boat where not sport fishermen, but divers from the Helsingør sport diving club Aquanaut, who arrived for a nice late afternoon diving session on the Swedish side of the Sound.

The first diver is already in the water.

The second diver jumps into the water.

A diving flag is installed.

Where are the divers?

The Helsingør diving club's boat is also called Aquanaut. It is a 40 feet former British pilot boat, which since 1987 has been used by sport divers.

The oil product tanker SKS Demini and the Aquanaut.
