Diving with Orcas
Richcoast - 11 days 23 hours ago.
I am sure we have all been to a sea aquarium at least once in our life, but hopefully now with all the commotion around Seaworld we know better. We are all signing petitions, to save marine capture, stop Dolphin torture in Tajij, or the Faroe slaughter. Facebook is exposing more and more and we are slowly […]...
Flat As A Lake! Another Perfect Sunday Dive!
PSD - 19 days 10 hours ago.
The swell map was solid blue around Palos Verdes and there was a big turnout at Terranea today – maybe 20 divers and a lot of new faces. I was the first one off the Point – it was like slipping off the rocks and into a lake. Having no idea where to drop on […]...

Local Lembeh, Maclearie Park Local Lembeh, Maclearie Park
m_grieco - 8/22/2016 5:13 PM
I struggled with how to categorize this article. I mean I have been to many countries with the sole reason for my trip revolving around diving. You can read all about those places in my profile, that’s not my reason for this article. Part of me hesitates in writing this as part of me wants to keep this local "gem" to myself; but that’s not what this site is about. Had it not been for one of the members on here, I would have never been introduced to this special place myself. Maclearie Park, Belm...
500 Dives And Still Alive!
PSD - 8/22/2016 6:06 AM
I arrived at Terranea Resort a few minutes after 8 AM, to what was going to be my 500th dive. There were maybe eight or nine divers there, but only three regulars – Reverend Al, BlueSteel and Libertarian Ted. It was decided to go off the Point. Unlike most other dives, I was actually waiting […]...

Why Indonesia Should be on your Scuba diving Liveaboard Bucket list
scubadivingnomad - 8/15/2016 12:39 PM
Why Indonesia Should be on your Scuba diving Liveaboard Bucket list To many people including divers, Indonesia is a bit of a mystery. Sure they might know something of Bali or the Komodo dragons but most likely not much more. There is so much more to diving Indonesia. Indonesia is the largest archipelagic country in the world. It straddles the equator and extends 5,120 kilometers (3,181 mi) from east to west and 1,760 kilometers (1,094 mi) from north to south. Not only is the distance great, the...

Every year thousands of marine animals die from eating or getting tangled in marine debris or trash in the ocean. Research has shown that marine debris affects 663 marine species. Divers have a history of removing trash from the ocean but despite our best efforts the trash keeps piling up. In order to help the […]...

Sunday Diving, Lobster Prep and Dead Bodies
PSD - 8/08/2016 4:30 AM
It’s two months before lobster season, and I have made reservations to go on the Bottom Scratcher on Opening night. I was told it will be limited to 25 divers, and the boat will move to three different locations, unlike the fiasco in 2005 when most everyone got skunked because the boat anchored in one […]...
