Laughs and laughs with the pussy divers
Richcoast - 1 day 18 hours ago.
Diving is a vacation for most people. I am mean, working in the dive industry is basically a vacation as well, am I right instructors?

WARNING GRAPHIC FOOTAGE. While on a research project in Costa Rica, Nathan J. Robinson removed a 10 cm (4 in) plastic straw that was entirely embedded into the nostril of an olive ridley sea turtle.

Going Pro and taking the next step on the PADI ladder is a dream for many.  Now it so happens that the dive industry gives many opportunities to grow, even if you do not have piles of cash.  There are many types of internships available.  Now this does not mean you get your Divemaster for […]...
Diving Update And Conditions Report
PSD - 18 days 3 hours ago.
I haven’t been diving since May, for various reasons. I came back from my secret trip to Iowa with a cold from hell, but tried to get back in the water two weeks ago. I geared up with Kenny and some 16 year old chick and made it all the way down to the cove […]...

Puffer fish blowing up as a defense mechanism
Richcoast - 26 days 15 hours ago.
Yesterday I noticed a disturbing photo on Facebook and judging by the comments I believe these people had no clue what they had done. Other people were commenting on how cool this was as well, so I am going to try and explain the behavior of a puffer fish blowing up. We already did a […]...

A PADI Divemaster, To Be or Not to be......that is the question A PADI Divemaster, To Be or Not to be......that is the question
Scubabunnycr - 7/27/2015 11:23 PM
So after a recent discussion with some PADI Divemaster candidates I was inspired to write an article about "why it is good" to become a Divemaster and why, in my humble opinion, it is a bad idea to complete your divemaster training. Not that it is a bad thing per se, more that there are some good reasons to complete the training and there are some bad reasons. So let’s start with what we know about the course for starters and what it entails. The PADI Divemaster program is designed to train you ...
Shore Diving in Bonaire - is it that easy?
kerrycorcoran - 7/27/2015 4:12 PM
My wife and I have been diving for about 2 years now. We have dove Cozumel (multiple times) and Roatan last summer. I’m just short of 70 dives and my wife has roughly 50 dives. We’re both solid as far as knowing our gear and how to handle ourselves underwater. Thus far, all our diving has been with a Dive Master (or guide) along with us. I have read incredible stories of how awesome Bonaire is, but the wife is a bit concerned about ’shore diving alone’. We’re able to navigate, but we have never ...

I really wanted to get back in the water Sunday. Even though it rained the previous day, the swell maps made it look calm and the sun was out. Well, I was the ONLY diver who showed up at Terranea Resort, and I quickly discovered why… The water was pretty green and foamy with some […]...
