Is it a vegetable? Is it a fish? No it’s a sea cucumber   »

Diving Home for Christmas! »

At first glance, spending the Christmas holidays on a tropical Buddhist paradise island may not provide the stereotyped western traditions that most of us would associate with the festive season. The busy commercial Christmas bustle, generous portions of rich food, cold nights in a warm home, the hope for a few snowy days off work, [...]

Night Diving – The Good, The Bad and the Alien! »

When taking the Advanced Open Water Course, it’s the night dive that most people are, quite naturally, a bit wary of. Most people end up loving it, although if the correct procedures aren’t followed it can be nerve wracking. Dive Master Candidate Eain wrote a blog for us about his range of night diving experiences [...]

Introducing Eco Instructor…David! »

Scuba Diving and Eco, not a position I had even considered when you make all those choices at school about what you want to be when you’re older. How could it be possible to have the ocean as your office yet still make a difference? I had always been interested in biology from a young [...]

Save Our Sharks! »

Sharks have survived relatively unthreatened for over 400 million years, but sadly without some intervention they may be gone within the next few decades. Marine life within the oceans which cover over 70% of our planet, has always existed with – and in some respect thanks to – sharks. But now the growing demand for [...]

Please Don’t Feed Our Fish! »

  Many travellers and holiday makers will have experienced some sort of fish feeding on tours, trips and days out at some point during their vacations.
