The Falkland Islands are an archipelago of 778 islands in South Atlantic Ocean. These islands are heaving with diverse and beautiful wildlife. Falklands is a nature’s wonder. Islands have an untouched environment and stunning vistas all around. There are beautiful sandy beaches all along the coastline. The archipelago caters for laid back vacationers and adrenaline junkies, both. While the landscape and wildlife of Falklands is well known, its scuba diving potential is not very popular. Carriage of heavy diving equipment is an issue with the visitors. Royal Air Force is the only airline that offers a direct flight to the islands and charges 25£ for every extra kilo over 27 kilos per person. This discourages many from taking up diving in Falklands. The waters off the islands are specially known for presence of Kelp Forests. These gigantic algae formations can grow to a height of 30 meters and are kept extended by gas filled bubbles. These forests are a perfect hideout of fish and other pelagic species. The commonly seen species in these waters are jellyfish, isopods, crabs, lobster krill, marine snails and small fish. The absence of more colorful and diverse fish and marine life deters divers from diving in these waters.
