Helicopter scuba diving

If the Caribbean Island of Curacao didn't have enough to tempt scuba divers, it has just added the ultimate thrill - “helidives”.

Niels Jorissen, owner of Dive Charter Curacao, has been taking adventurous divers to their dive site on his helicopter.

Jorissen said the experience is unique with the divers dropped into the water from about ten feet. After the dive they jump on the dive boat waiting to pick them up.

But at $250 a go, it's quite expensive.
