‘Is it possible to have a severe case of the blues when scuba diving? It is if you’re surrounded by blue sharks in the crystal-clear, deep-blue waters of the Agulhas Current off South Africa.’

Snorkeling with blue sharks is something I recommend to divers and swimmers of all abilities, as it is a great introduction to the […]

Mangrove Matters

When it comes to scuba diving it is hard to beat exploring colourful tropical reefs, history-filled wrecks, sun-dappled kelp forests and foreboding caves. Every scuba diver has their favourite type of diving but what of mangroves? What diving opportunities are there within mangroves and why should we care about these dwindling and vital forests?

Read more […]

Dive Site: Beqa Lagoon, Fiji

Looking for a world class shark dive this year? Look no further than Beqa Lagoon, Fiji and enjoy my recent article for Scuba Diver Life.

My heart pounded as the choppy ocean slapped me in the face repeatedly and my mask fogged up like a coastal winter’s day in Cornwall. I was kicking like crazy as the […]

Projects in Thailand

The last stop on our World Tour for Sharks was Thailand. Again we were working alongside Projects Abroad and from their site near Ao Nang we had easy access to diving, beaches and the nearby town of Krabi for school work and Mangrove projects.

We’ve explained the importance of Mangroves in a previous blog. Interestingly, unlike […]

World Tour for Sharks – The End!

So, this is it. We made it to the finish line and our World Tour for Sharks is officially over.

Complete. Done.

How is it possible that we even made it to this point? Mostly in one piece I would like to add; with just two hospital visits, two broken laptops, two broken cameras, four back injury […]

Experiencing Cambodia

Spending 3 weeks with Projects Abroad on the Island of Koh Sdach at their marine conservation site may not sound like an opportunity to explore much of what Cambodia has to offer. Little could be further from the truth; so long as you allow yourself to try things.

 
First up was getting to the coast from […]

Hello from the top of New Zealand!

I had been really looking forward to visiting Northland after a cold winter travelling throughout New Zealand and it was as beautiful, warm and scenic as we had both hoped for. Our first stop was Tutukaka for a dive centre lecture at Dive Tutukaka. The event went well despite a technical hitch at the start […]

West Coast Wanderings

After a wonderful time exploring the Coromandel Peninsula, we visited the west coast of the north island for a public event at Raglan. Raglan is a well known surf spot in New Zealand and, despite it having been a blustery winter week, there were people enjoying the surf at the local beaches. We stayed at […]

Hold It!

Hold it…your breath that is.

Today I would like to share our favourite travelling game, The Breath Hold game. It is quite straightforward – you hold you breath whilst crossing any bridge. Simple and yet strangely addictive when you drive as many roads as we do.

We were introduced to this game by one of the employess […]

Poms Away!

I have been featured in ‘Poms Away! A British Immigrant’s View of New Zealand’ this week, with a guest blog post. Read on to find out what it is about living in New Zealand that has left a lasting impression with us. It won’t be the things you’d expect!
