Why are sailing and diving made for each other? The first reason — a shared spirit of adventure. It puffs up the sails and drives the boat to new places. It also forces you to plunge deep into unknown areas. The second reason — a small boat won't take you far, and a big cruise liner won't come close to most locations. RUNNING ON WAVES is ready to lower a diving ramp that lies right on the surface of the water
