    Hong Kong divers take heed: the ocean is dark and full of terrors. Before you plunge in, know your enemy! For nothing would make these five beasts of the briny deep happier than to see you in a watery grave. 1. The Urchins of Death These urchins appear to be waving their long spines around gently in an elegant ballet with the Chinese demoiselles. But don’t be fooled. In reality, they think evilly, they crawl evilly and they cluster together in evil packs to plan world domination. Dive in Hong Kong and see for yourself. 2.

    Dear Critters, As promised, here’s a video my dive buddy Mark ‘LP’ Jones and I filmed recently of him dancing with an octopus (literally moments after we got the chance to play with a beautiful big cuddlefish at Flinders Pier). Lately we have had some truly special underwater encounters with some absolutely gorgeous, playful creatures. At first I wondered whether this octopus was falling in love with its own reflection in LP’s big round camera dome. But the more I study the footage, the more I suspect that this fabulous occy mistook the lens dome for a tunnel and was…

    Oaten Pipe hydroids Sending up the shot On the bottom Waiting on the line I greatly enjoyed a trip to Devon last weekend and, though the water was cold, the visibility was surprisingly good. I managed four dives- two reefs and a wreck (twice). The reef, East Rutts was a very pleasant place to spend an hour and this early in the season is covered in Oaten Pipe (Tubularia indivisa) hydroids. Those hydroids won’t be around for very much longer, as they are the food for nudibranchs (sea slugs). We saw many spiral swirls of eggs, but no slugs yet, but I would expect that by May the hydroids…

  • Freediving and Deaths in Competitions

    20 Mar 2015 | 8:05 am
    Many divers are adventurous souls. We like to eat some fish fillets after our long day on the water, trade some tall tails and plan the next outing. Sometimes we are frustrated when we can’t find anyone to dive with; sometimes we plan an outing and it seems like we have too many people on the boat, or that we invited just 1-2 too many divers. Some of us are very social when it comes to our dive time; we use scuba or freediving as a way to meet people and spend quality time with our friends. At times, going diving is the only thing we do with our buddies, which makes the time all that more…
  • Lake Rawlings in VA is Closing

    8 Mar 2015 | 5:18 am
    Lake Rawlings in Rawlings, Virginia is closing. Here is an excerpt from their website: "It is with sadness that I must tell you our company is on the losing end of negotiations for the continued use of the Rawlings Quarry properties after March 31, 2015. Negotiations to purchase the properties were tilted too far to the side of the landowner, and the family owners would not give us a long term lease or sell their properties to us." Every Fri - Sun in March, 2015...they are have a liquidation sale of new and used scuba equipment. This is a big loss to the diving community on the east coast.

    I’m an underwater photographer born in Venezuela and photography is my greatest passion. I have had the chance to dive in wonderful and different places, such as Galapagos, Bahamas, Yucatan Peninsula, Coiba, Bonaire, the Canary Islands and most recently – Indonesia. In the latter I visited the amazing underwater world. For me, Lembeh Strait (Indonesia) is the best place for underwater macro photography in the whole world. The diversity of tiny species from nudibranchs and frog fishes to the most venomous octopus in the world just makes every diving spot there magical. While “muck…

  • The Oki Islands: Diving and Discovering the Sea of Japan

    Guest Blogger
    29 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    By Bonnie Waycott Remnants of an ancient volcano, the Oki Islands are made up of four large inhabited islands and about 180 smaller, uninhabited ones. Large schools of fish inhabit the upper reaches of the walls here, with damselfish and chicken grunts both amassing in significant numbers.  The dramatic underwater scene mainly consists of huge boulders and rocks on a sandy seabed.  Throw in some schooling yellowtail amberjack and plentiful blennies poking their little heads out of their rock lairs in the rocks, and you’ll begin to understand why the Oki Islands in the Sea of Japan offer…
  • Dive Site: Darwin Island, Galapagos

    Just four hours north of Wolf Island, the infamous Darwin Arch juts out of the water and marks the spot like an X on a treasure map for one of the best dives sites in the world, and certainly the best in the Galapagos. Diving near this uninhabited island is only possible from a liveaboard due to its remote location from the Galapagos main islands. The famous arch is the epicenter of all dives at Darwin, with the stars of the show circling around it beneath the waves. Divers back-roll off a panga into schools of various sharks and rays, and — if they’re lucky — dolphins make…

    After my initial review, I downloaded the (free) Scuba DiveShare app and took it for a spin. The weather hadn’t really allowed for diving at home the last couple of weeks, so I decided to test the app using an older dive from my latest trip to Egypt. The first interface presents users with a social-media style newsfeed of other users’ dives, which are shared among all app users, so you’re not limited to people you befriend — there is no “friend” element to DiveShare. The contemporary design is appealing, and does not try to emulate a physical logbook. The information in the feed…

Belize Situated near the center of Lighthouse Reef some 43 miles from the Belize mainland, this spectacular blue hole is perhaps the most famous in the world.

    To take part in this unique event, 15 divers from all over Siberia had to make the most of limited daylight hours and brave subzero temperatures both above and below the water. The competition lasted for three days, and saw teams of two or three people take to the frigid water with their hockey sticks, entering the ice through triangular holes set 50 feet (15 m) apart and cut specifically for the matches. These holes also served as the goals for the game; the conventional ice-hockey puck was replaced with one that would float on the underside of the ice rather than sinking into the depths…

  • Living Small

    14 Mar 2015 | 7:14 pm
    Flipping through Netflix for a Saturday night distraction we came upon the movie 'Tiny: a story about living small'. The film chronicles the journey of building a 'tiny house' of not much more than 100 square feet as a permanent residence. I've been aware of this tiny house movement over the past several years, so it was interesting to learn a bit about the motives of those engaged in this lifestyle.Among the commonalities between tiny house dwellers was an outwardly vocal position on our state of excess, which frankly doesn't make much sense in terms of quality of life, and perhaps even…

This has been frustrating to say the least.I can deal with the cold, its the immobility from being snowed in that gets to me. While I'm probably starting to sound like the whining of the masses that have all been trapped this winter, I suppose a positive thing that arose was a reminder of just how powerful…
  • out of sight, but definitely on my mind

    5 Feb 2015 | 12:00 pm
    Hmm...every once in a while a news piece shines some light through the darkness that seems to prevail these days and, if nothing else, makes you think about the ever so important big picture.The recent  report of fisherman taking up what may be a 200,000 year old hominid jaw bone (from a potentially new species) off the coast of Taiwan certainly speaks to that state of inquiry.What jumps out at me is the location of the discovery - dredged up some 15 miles offshore.These are the types of discoveries that cross a desk out of pure luck and good fortune, and leave massive questions to be…

    Two of my best friends, diving buddies and founders of Dive U.K. Danny and Sam invited me to go diving with them in February to explore some UK dive sites.  I’ve done plenty of UK diving but I’m always excited to explore new dive sites that I’ve never been before and Dive U.K. are doing some reconnaissance for an online encyclopedia of UK inland dive sites to raise awareness of places to visit. The adventure started with the usual last minute teething issues; the van we were supposed to drive down in decided to break down the day before hand so we had to hire a van and due…

  • The Future of the Dive Industry for 2015

    6 Mar 2015 | 6:32 am
    The UK diving industry has seen a flurry of activity over the last few weeks with the London International Dive Show and the Oceanic UK dealer conference. These kinds of event are always good for catching up with friends and industry colleagues about the old days and really help to keep the industry talking. The conversation inevitably turns to how the previous year has been, and talk of what the future holds for the business of diving in the UK. I was pleased to hear that the overwhelming feeling was very positive and that the doldrums of recent years are starting to recede. That said there…
  • How A Drysuit Is Made

    Mark E Newman
    27 Feb 2015 | 7:51 am
    Have you ever wondered just how a drysuit is made? Well we took a visit to Oceanic and Hollis’s Headquarters down in Devon and got them to demonstrate the process that goes into making one – and if you thought it was easy then think again! Each drysuit is carefully handmade and takes between 8 – 15 hours to make from scratch. Now, each and every drysuit is made in a slightly different way, however they do all follow similar stages and here is a breakdown of the 8 stages that go into the production of any drysuit: Stage 1: Measurements Every drysuit is made to measure so when your order…

  • Making Your Own Entry Level Underwater Video

    19 Mar 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Read on the webMost of the times, the best way to share stories about your recent diving trip to your friends and family is to show pictures or videos. And yes, when you are about to share them, you just want to show them the best pictures you got. There is nothing wrong with that, but sometimes, you just feel as bad that there is so much more to tell from your recent trip. Personally, I am a holiday diver with little time to spend in a year, so I bought a pocket camera with HD video mode. Soon I began to to grow on taking videos rather than taking pictures and starting to learn how to…
  • Aori-ika, the Bigfin Reef Squid of Miyakejima - Japan

    16 Mar 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Read on the webAori-ika, the Bigfin Reef Squid of Miyakejima The Izu island chain south of Tokyo is full of surprises for the keen scuba diver.  A range of life is on offer from dolphins, rocky dive sites and coral to turtles, macrolife and shoals of fish.  The island of Miyakejima is the 6th in the chain and formed by volcanic eruptions and lava flows.   In early July 2000, it came back to life and forced the evacuation of all residents.  The aftermath is still plain to see in this quiet and remote part of Japan.  The eruptions turned out to be the most severe in 2,500 years, and today…
