Didn't expect anything, thus was surprised

Marsa Ghalib10 Aug 2017 - 20 Aug 2017

We dived 3 days with local dive center Aquarius.

Pros: Lots of turtles everywhere, nice coral, met many shrimps and curious unicornfishes on the night dive. We were lucky to spot dugong and dolphins.

Cons: Problems with organization, necessity to ride zodiacs(due to them I have problems with knees now)

In addition to that we spent 1 week on a liveaboard and must admit that 80% of nice videos I shot were during those 3 days of diving with Aquarius (Karim is the best guide ever!)

See also a link to my video (almost all of it was shot in Port Ghalib except for the sharks and barracudas that were in remote areas where we headed during liveaboard trip)

Diving on a graveyard..'

Mahé15 Apr 2017 - 23 Apr 2017 with Dive Seychelles Underwater Centre

Forget the advertising.... no more whale shark since 7 years.... a lot of the coral grounds around mahe are just piles of dead coral, overgrown by seeweed. together with the disappearing polyps the fish life is also less than expected ! So , above the water the seychelles are still the pristine islands as everyone knows from the postcards, under water global warming is distroying most of the beauty.... perhaps the islands further away are less touched ?

The dive center was,ok, but no possibilities for noght diving, wreck diving, nitrox,....

That sucks! I see DR.com guys have now removed Whale Sharks from the calendar now. Good job Philippe :)

What does Off-season in October mean?

Why is there an Off-season in October in Ponta D’Ouro, Mozambique?

Probably rough seas, really low vis or a rainy season where the dive centers do not tend to operate..

The first diving for a Latin couple

St. Vincent & the Grenadines11 Jun 2017 - 11 Jun 2017

We went to a beach nearby the Diving shop and spent almost all afternoon showing the wonders of the Caribbean Sea to a young latin couple.

They were afraid at first of not being able to do all the basic diving breathing exercises, but as soon as they started they realized how easy it was. After a short introduction we start going deep down until we got to 9 mts.

As soon as we start diving we could see fishes and mainly coral reefs with impressive and beautiful colors.

They enjoyed it very much and definitely will try it again.

Diving with dolphins!

Rhodes Island2 Jun 2017 - 8 Jun 2017

only with Waterhoppers PADI 5 Star IDC facility on Rhodes you can sign up for the Marine Park Dive with 150 kg Tunas and wild dolphins - yes, here in Rhodes. our dive pack had one day in Kalithea caverns (15 meters max so easy for everyone), one day in Pefkos going out on the RIB for 2 Great Wall and drift dives, the next day in Plimiri where we dived the fantastic Gianuola K wreck sitting at just 22 meters (and its over 100 meters long and intact!), and then The marine park where we had the giant tuna and several dolphins swimmingly around us! Truly amazing. Give them an e mail on info@waterhoppers.com to see more details. It well worth it and would be great for Dive clubs looking for an alternative to Egypt

Diving in Baja End of June

Hi,

I am planning to be at Baja around the end of June, what's the general condition going to be like around that time? From looking at the Wildlife Calendar it does seem that Cabo is a better diving destination than La Paz, is going to La Paz even worth it?

Thanks!
